Quartz Composer OpenCL Snow Leopard Tips and Tutorial: Heightfield with CL Kernel - with VideoImage Extrusion Example Composition

Quartz Composer OpenCL Snow Leopard Tutorial: Heightfield with CL Kernel - with VideoImage Extrusion Example Composition from George Toledo on Vimeo.




This video is a run down of some tips about some new examples files available at the Apple Developer Center website.

I take the text extrusion example, and show how to reconfigure it to use the OpenCL kernel setup to process video in a way that is similar to the Rutt Etra, or Kineme3D Heightfield, but which seems to work especially well with shadows (notwithstanding any other shadow limitations).

I also talk about and show the Apple 2d fluid example "2D Smoke.qtz", as well as the composition mesh warping and Interaction patch driven compositon "Pages Jiggle.qtz", and a small bit about how they work and are also part of the OpenCL zip from the Apple Developer Connection.
