[REBOL] Re: convolve effect

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 15-Nov-2001 11:01

Hi Pekr, << Well, long time ago I asked about the feature. My friend suggested me that general native matrice operations could be used for many computational stuff, but I am no math folk, so I don't know if it would help. >> Yes, that's the idea. I'm not a math person either, which is why I'd prefer to have RT do it. :) << - Added "func" effect. This allows you to call a REBOL function from within the effect pipeline, manipulate the current image (including its alpha information) and pass an image back to the effect pipeline. Is that what you are asking for? >> That's a great feature too, but I think for the matrix operations, REBOL functions will still be very slow if we have to pick/poke values. << Or do you mean operations upon image datatype directly? Now another question popped in my mind - are Core and Command users left behind? What do I mean? Core and Command both know image datatype. But they don't know of face composition. How can we work with images using Core and Command? Hmm, shouldn't datatype manipulation functionalities be part of the kernel of the system? >> It should work for Core and Command as well. It has nothing to do with displaying the images, just manipulating the pixel values in them. I haven't looked into it, but I wonder if there's a similar way to deal with audio, to create audio compositing functions? It doesn't matter what the data is, it may just be raw data (GIS or simillar) that you want to perform the operations on. --Gregg
