Just curious..
Has anyone seen an image analyse conversion software that
can analyse a textured image,and based on that analys getting a match
that is then created in a procedural texture environment? but with
some options to tweak it further?

Interesting to know.

I have wondered about that recently. I got it in my head that a program/script might be able to break down a hires texture by a particular algorythm to a MUCH simpler image file. Although it wouldn't necessarily be able to recreate the original image in reverse, this method could make it so a small image map could co-produce a unique procedural output that wouldn't look so..... procedural and wouldn't require large images.
