Since I read about the Convolution Filter in Actionscript3 Cookbook I’ve wanted to try it out . In chapter 10 : “Filters and Transforms” there is example code for generating “embossing, sharpening and Edge Detect” filters using the ConvolutionFilter, as Borat would say, very naaaiice…
Instead of typing in a gazillion “test matrices” I decided to follow the tradition of “flex [fill the blank] explorers”, so, behold,
The Dazzling ConvolutionFilter explorer
again, right click on the app for source.
I didn’t actually have the “moment of AAAH” oh: that I was hoping for. I gained a bit of insight, but more playing around (or reading theory *gasp*) is required. If any one of you millions of fanatic sakri.net/blog readers (who no doubt will spend days playing with this 1337 application) happen to come up with interesting Matrices (or insight), don’t hesitate to post responses.
On another titilating side note, this was the first thing I built with Moxie. Nope, didn’t use any of the new features, but I thought I would sound far far cooler…
