Clone Stamp Tool Art with Flash CS3

While I was last minute preparing my session for Flashbelt (tomorrow afternoon) in the Flashbelt hotel loby at Minneapolis today I started building a clone stamp tool in Flash. The concept is the same as you know from Photoshop. But afterwards I was thinking  to misuse (+?) it to create some generative art thingy with it.

The clone stamp lives his own way and takes place at a random position on an image, the size of the stamp is also random. The stamp copies the image data and places it on another place within in the same source image. I choose to describe a circle shape for the stamp to make it more interesting.

After running the algorythm several minutes this is what I came up with :

Roses series untitled 01:


Roses series untitled 02:


I will work a bit more on the algorythm and will post the code of the circle clone stamp tool later on when it is a bit less messy 🙂 .

Let me know what you think about the result and if you are at Flashbelt here in Minneapolis stop by tomorow during my session titled “Play With Pixels” where I will also explain a bit more about this experiment.
