im trying to create an app to apply effects to my windows desktop
what i want is to open my oFx app and anything that is under it could be captured and manipulated to say apply effects like blur, ripples etc …
The idea is to have some kind of viewer that deforms anything under it in real time.
I almost had success using flash (adobe air3) , but it worked below 15 fps and with some crashes
i used this ANE (https://github.com/pcichon/ScreenShooter) to capture the screen
this is one of the effects i did to apply to my desktop using flash : http://test.motion.mx/foggedGlass/
So what do you suggest to capture my desktop or a region of it ?
i was thinking to try something like
but i prefer to hear from your experiences.
