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.

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.
