Video from my Pixel Bender 3D sneak peak

I was going to wait and see if we were going to publish an “official” video, but, eh, why wait?

For those who were not there. I need to explain something about some of my outbursts. The main rule of the sneak is that you are limited to 5 minutes. This year, we had a klingon timekeeper (played excellently by Flash Catalyst Product Manager, Doug Winnie). He was supposed to come out close to 5 minutes to “remove” you if you ran over time. Doug and I being pals, he decided to start creeping across the stage towards me much earlier. Nothing is more distracting that a klingon creeping up on you out of the corner of your eye :)

I really had a great time doing this. I had a lot of stuff to cover, but I managed to get most of it in with one main exception:
PIXEL BENDER 3D RUNS ON THE GPU IN FLASH EVEN ON MOBILE DEVICES.

Linky Friday: Pre-Pre MAX edition

Yes, first I am going to flog my MAX Bring-your-own-laptop lab again…

Intermediate Pixel Bender: Pixels and Beyond
Attend this lab for an introduction to topics like optimizing your Adobe Pixel Bender and ActionScript code; using ShaderJobs to process data asynchronously; using Pixel Bender to process audio and other non-image data efficiently in your Flash movies; taking advantage of Pixel Bender parameter metadata; and new Pixel Bender APIs in Flex 4. We’ll also give you a look under the hood regarding how the Pixel Bender runtime works in Adobe Flash Player 10.

Wednesday, October, 27th, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Room: 510

Now on to the links!

Droste Pixel Bender Plug-in tutorial

Francois Tarlier is back with another in his series of useful Pixel Bender filters for After Effects, this time he has a tool to help you identify pixels in your footage that are too light or dark, ft-Brightness Check.

Link Friday: All about the Oil Paint Tuts.

Two new Tutorials crossed my browser this week for the Pixel Bender plug-in for CS5. Both about the Oil Paint filter. Now folks, the Oil Paint filter is pretty awesome, but you know that you can run lots of other filters in the Pixel Bender plug-in too, right? :)

El tutorial primero es en espaƱol por mis amigos que hablan espaƱol: [CORRECTION: it is Portuguese, not Spanish, D’oh!]

The second tutorial is in the Queen’s english, courtesy of Gavin Hoey:
