First off I wanted to say this little app really saved the
day! I was really needing to mathematically manipulate images and
while I do that all the time with .fx shaders I was having a hard
time finding a good solution for manipulating image files.
I thought I'd post a couple observations I've noticed in my
first days of using the app. Some of the stuff may have already
1. Image size: I noitced that when I would try to process a
very large image (3000x3000+ pixels) in the Pixel Bender Toolkit
app and save it out the program would only save out a cropped
square image which was different depending on my zoom level. It'd
be nice to be able to output the full image.
2. Photoshop multiple image support. It would nice to be able
to define an image source parameter in the filter so that we can
access multiple images. Right now the best I can do is store a
greyscale in the alpha channel.
3. Float sliders in the toolkit are buggy. The sliding action
works fine but if I click in the numerical entry box and hit
backspace to delete the current number it will max out my slider.
Also if I highlight the current number and start typing a numer it
will add it in front of the old number instead of replacing it.
Thanks! 1 & 3 are bugs that we'll get fixed in a future
version of the toolkit. We'd definitely like to do more with the
plug-in for CS5 and supporting multiple image inputs (as in After
Effects) is definitely on the list.
