Yet more Pixel Bender community links

I can’t keep up with the community! As with the previous posts, there is no particular rhyme or reason, these are just things open up in tabs in my browser right now…

Slender Pixel Bender

A great take on a Pixel Bender filter explorer showing you all the metadata and a preview image.

Pixel Bender
by Jan-C. Frischmuth
(the same person who did Real-time Screen Space Ambient Occlusion with Pixel Bender and After Effects) A lot of cool Pixel Bender experiments happening on this blog, definitely worth checking out.

I love seeing experiments using Pixel Bender to do simulation in the player.

Using Pixel Bender for Math in Flash/FLEX by Rob Skelly
Nice article on off-loading math computation to Pixel Bender.

Pixel Bender Disco

Pixel Bender Disco by Jozef Chúťka
Really trippy real-time visuals created with multiple Pixel Bender filters.

Milky Ball
PixelBender Raytracer & Milkyball by Ralph Hauwert
Ralph is at it again, doing some really amazing things combining his knowledge of 3D with the capabilities of Pixel Bender. When I showed this to the Flash team, they were blown away.

Pixel Bender and 3D (catching up on Links, pt 2)

Pixel Bender’s heritage is from the 3D Pixel Shading languages, but we carefully removed most of that to make it specialized for signal processing. The lineage is there though, right below the surface, and Pixel Bender’s utility for doing a lot of math fast makes it really attractive for doing 3D. I’ve written about 3D experiments from the community in the posts Some cool experiments with Pixel Bender and More Cool Pixel Bender Experiments. There has been a lot of really cool work done in the community since then, and I wanted to highlight that:


David Lenaerts has been busy combining Away3D and Pixel Bender, especially for Normal maps: Away3D 3.4.2: Pixel Bender to the max!


Kris Temmerman has also been experimenting with Pixel Bender and Normal Maps.


This is a demo video of a different ray tracer written in Pixel Bender by macduyhai.


Here is an article on integrating Pixel Bender and Papervision3D


Tom Beddard has been doing really cool fractal tools with Pixel Bender. His new Mandelbulbs are really beautiful.


Jerzy Drozda Jr did some experiments with Pixel Bender for UV Mapping in After Effects.

Stay tuned for more links!
