As I’ve posted here in the past, previous code I have used that applies OSX Core Image filters to a texture-based FBO stopped working after OS 10.9.
[ ofFBO and Core Image Filters Fix Sought ]
Having spent close to 100 hours trying to solve this, I think I need to throw in the towel and find a replacement.
I was using the gorgeous and fast CI Gaussian Blur filter, with an Affine Clamp applied – getting very smooth blurs even with very large blur radius (even as high as 50 pixels). I was also applying CI Saturation, Brightness, and Contrast and CI add-compositing that onto the gaussian blur.
I need to replace these. What I have discovered in cursory look a GLSL options is that there are a lot of poor quality blurs out there. Any suggestions where to look for replacements that might have similar quality and speed to Core Image? Anything that might speed up my search.
Just tried the FreeFrame plugin extension for OF, but it appears to need updating.
