This paper presents improvements in mosaic packing by combining a new tile evenness metric with an efficient, effective tile placement algorithm based on the Fast Fourier Transform. This new packing method applies to existing packing applications and makes possible novel mosaic applications, such as mosaic packings of 3D volumes using temporally repeating animated shapes. Applications of our approach include static 2D mosaic packing, mosaic animations, stippling, and texture generation.
