This technical report deals with the problem of real-time procedural texture synthesis, and more precisely Perlin textures. These textures need a per-pixel calculation, while 3D graphics libraries such as OpenGL usually have a very constrained grammar, which only allows a control at the level of faces and mesh nodes. Thanks to the numerous OpenGL extensions such as multipass, blending, 3D textures and lookup-tables, it is however possible to translate the per-pixel procedural algorithm into OpenGL operations.
