ImageFX on Mac

Dear Friends,

I'm finishing porting our modern tools called ImageFX to Mac OS X. On Mac OS ImageFX use OpenGL fragment programs. Also i rewrite ImageFX core. Now it is more clear and better. New version will support Lazarus for Windows and Mac OS X. Also i start to developing shader editor - for easy developing of custom filters.

This is screenshot of Mac version:

This is new FXHouse - rewritten using VGScene. Now FXHouse called FXShow and available only as binary.

Better iOS Support

Dear Friends,

Today i was upload new our FPC build, now it contains VGScene units and samples. Full support iOS simulator and device.

Changed Wiki article:

And new Delphi to Xcode converter - link in Wiki.

Now development for iOS with VGScene become very easy.

Just Screenshots:

Full Direct 2D Support and new WIC Image Filter

Dear Friends,

Last two weeks i worked to add full Direct 2D support in VGScene & DXScene. And now this work finished. Also i was add new WIC (Windows Imaging Component) filter for imaging i/o.

This is screenshot of CtrlsDemo:

This is link to Direct 2D based CtrlsDemo:

And now to set Direct 2D Canvas as default - just add two lines in main unit. Like this:


If application running on Windows XP - Direct2D canvas not loaded and automatically used GDI+.

ImageFX 1.00 just released

Dear Friends,

I'm happy to announce our new product ImageFX.

What is ImageFX ?

Image FX is an image processing component library for Delphi and C++ Builder that leverages programmable graphics hardware whenever possible to provide near real-time processing. ImageFX use only hardware acceleration for image processing. ImageFX abstracts the pixel-level manipulation process required when applying a filter to an image, making it simple for applications to implement image transformation capabilities without extensive coding. Each filter specifies a single transform or effect. Like Photoshop, ImageFX can apply multiple filters to the same image source. Instead of applying a series of filters individually. ImageFX also have support of the Graphics32 bitmap and VGScene bitmap.

VGScene + Pixel Shader Effects

Dear Friends,

Today i try to use our new (in development) image processing library as effects in VGScene. I create new effects like (Shadow, Glow) which use Image FX effect. Add TvgFloatAnimation object and merge with new effect. This is my final sample program:

ImageFX - CoreImage for Windows and Delphi

Hello All,

May be you know what is Apple Core Image? Copied from Wikipedia - "Core Image is a pixel-accurate, near-realtime, non-destructive image processing technology in Mac OS X. Implemented as part of the QuartzCore framework of Mac OS X 10.4 and later, Core Image provides a plugin-based architecture for applying filters and effects within the Quartz graphics rendering layer."

Latest few month i'm working to implementation CoreImage like technology (GPU-based image processing using DirectX Pixel Shader effects) on Windows platform. Now i get good result. This is link to demo program (require Pixel Shader 2.0 support video card - low-end video card at this time):

Soon i offer this work as Delphi Component Library. I can said - image processing performance is very very good. About 5-10x faster CPU version on Intel building video.
