Pixel Bender Technology Center now live on Adobe

Pixel Bender just got it’s Technology Center at Adobe Site, with tutorials, presentations and various resources here’s an excerpt of the site:

Adobe Pixel Bender technology delivers a common image and video processing infrastructure which provides automatic runtime optimization on heterogeneous hardware. You can use the Pixel Bender kernel language to implement image processing algorithms (filters or effects) in a hardware-independent manner. The Pixel Bender graph language is an XML-based language for combining individual pixel-processing operations (kernels) into more complex Pixel Bender filters.

The Pixel Bender Toolkit includes the Pixel Bender kernel language and graph language, the Pixel Bender Toolkit IDE (an integrated development environment for Pixel Bender), sample filters, and documentation.

  • Vote for a locally running Flash Player settings panel

    The issue reported in my last post is now fixed so well done Adobe for moving so quickly!

    There were a lot of commenters who felt that this system is fairly unwieldy and perhaps the settings should run locally. I checked out Jira and there are actually 2 feature requests there already, the first being submitted by Linda Walsh just over a year ago, but sadly with no votes!

  • After several weeks of hard work, the upcoming beta release of WorkflowLab is just around the corner. Throughout this week, I’ll be previewing a number of the new features we have added into WorkflowLab for this release, a majority of which are from people in the community that submitted ideas on the Adobe Labs forums, or through blogs and Twitter.

    The community response to WorkflowLab has been very positive, and a lot of people are very curious with what WorkflowLab has the potential to be. WorkflowLab was originally launched at Adobe MAX as an alpha release with a single intention: To help the community of designers, developers and their management teams learn about project best practices and recommended workflows.
