With all my travel and prepping for travel, I’ve let my new tradition fall by the wayside a bit. Catching up…

This morning (West coast time), Ralph Hauwert posted a clip of a cool plasma generator written in Pixel Bender and rendered in After Effects:

Also, I finally got a chance to watch the video of Ralph’s talk at FFK which was filmed in April in Cologne (another excellent conference). A great talk with some nice Pixel Bender goodness:

Simo Santavirta posted some images from his Pixel Bender Ray Tracing experiments.

He also posted some trickiness with #defines to help do fixed-length loops when targeting your Pixel Bender kernels for Flash. Believe me, loops are on the agenda for Flash. We feel your pain. (Literally!)

Francois Tarlier posted some new useful Pixel Bender-based filters for After Effects. This one, his filmic look plug-in, is really nice.

You can find that plug-in here.

Takayuki Fukatsu created a nice painting app using Pixel Bender, Flashpaint.

Lots more to catch up on, but this is all for now. Thanks!
