Upsample and Stylize images with Machine Learning on Vectorworks Cloud Services

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

The Vectorworks Cloud Services team is very excited to announce two Machine Learning-based features:


Stylize images: Vectorworks Service Select members can use Vectorworks Cloud Services to create an artistic design from plain renderings, making them more interesting with almost no effort or time.


Upsample images: Vectorworks Service Select members can create a low resolution rendering in Vectorworks, and then use Vectorworks Cloud Services to upsample the rendering, to get a good-quality rendering in less time.


Here are the simple steps you can take to try these features:


Step 1:

Sign in to https://cloud.vectorworks.net.


Step 2:

Right click on an image file that is uploaded to your Vectorworks Cloud Services account, or drag and drop into the window to upload,  and select Stylize image or Upsample image. Works for panorama images as well!

Step 3:  

In the dialog box, select how and where to save the output image, choose one of the predefined styles to apply to your image (for Stylize image), or the scale (for Upsample image) and then select Done to get the cloud job submitted.


Step 4:

To see a detailed status, select the Status button Screen Shot 2020-03-18 at 2.51.57 PM.png at the top right of the page.


Please try them out and let us know if you like them or how we can improve them.


Have fun!


The Vectorworks Cloud Services team

I don't get this? 

Why would you use this, when affinity , photoshop or pixelmator pro are quicker, better quality and have more options for tone mapping/stylising? 

- quick test of upscaling:  an image in pixelmator pro took about 6 seconds, vectorworks cloud took over 5 minutes and was a smaller image? 

Am I missing something?

If you already have those apps then please go ahead and use them.


As these ML features become more integrated with Vectorworks itself (and they will over time) it may save you some time and steps to use these built-in rather than piping to other applications.  For example we plan to add upsampling of renderings and animations ASAP, and every frame will benefit.

I was very excited about the stylize image feature, but am disappointed that it limits me to only a few styles. Hoped I could choose my own example, because that's how it came across in the design summit. Any future plans for an enhancement?
