Go APE

Been coding all day . A thousand lines of assembly later, this is the result... expect a release soon . I know it looks pretty simple but this is one hell of a powerful APE in terms of color adjustment. It supersedes fadeout, brightness, unique tone and such and merges them into one mapper.

Cool, now can you make one with a formulaic 'per point' expression option?

And what is that 'trans\texer' I see hey...?

Looks cool. Perhaps you could post a pic of the same preset without the Colour Map, just so I know what I'm looking for?

BTW, Is the Trans / Texer in there one of your new ones too? What does it do?

God, I'm so full of questions.

AVS Wishlist?

This is seriously something I thought AVS needed to have for quite some time! I think we have someone working for the AVS Wishlist! Looks like some cool stuff.

I'm a DJ. You can DL my mixes free from my website: www.djcmount.com

I knew someone'd come along and do this someday
/me hugs UnConeD :P

It looks amazing. I assume that it works thus: You have a list of colors (the slide bars at the top), sort of like this
Red
Yellow
Green
Cyan
Blue
Magenta
Black
and any pixels that are red get turned yellow, any yellow gets turned green, and green to cyan to blue to magenta to black, right? And if you wanted to you could create a list like this red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-purple-red so it went in a cycle without fading at all?



Also, since The Forward Flow is going nowhere fast, I've been putting together an AVS Resource Pack. Could I use your 3 Trans APEs in the pack? And CFP, when you get a real final version of your convolution APE (i.e., with ALL bugfixes) could I use that too?

I thought it was something that mapped colours of brightness (0..1) into a colour on the custom colour chart.

I reckon it is because seamless integration looks more professional.

I also know that when I get round to making some APEs (when I find my damn C++ CD) I would be insulted by them being listed in the same section as Fyrewurx. :P

By the way, your avatar rocks yathosho.

Atero's wrong, Zevensoft is right... it takes a certain aspect of a pixel (red chan, green chan, blue chan, max chan or brightness) and uses that as the index in the gradient at the top.

So if you use a black-left-white-right gradient, it turns everything into grayscale. You can use it as unique tone by using a gradient from black to the tone color. But you can also do plasma/chrome-like palettes and more. Quite nifty

It allows any of the AVS output modes, except adjustable blend which I still have to do (but should be easy). The APE is quite fast (everything is unrolled, optimized MMX assembly) but of course if an existing component like unique tone does the job perfectly, choose that instead. A specialised component is always faster than a generic one like this.

My current version also allows you to load/save gradients to your harddrive.

I'm going to try and optimize it some more before I release it.

Oh and I'm out of internet until the 3rd of oct (typing this from a univ. computer) so you'll have to wait some more.

Aww damn :P
You should do something like a dynamic colorfade...I think it's in the wishlist several places. Where in the pixel section you get to decide how the rgb/hls values change (instead of the xy/rd values). Is that possible/plausible?

I have just used 4 disks to transfer a 700KB file from my pc to here... not fun, all my disks are broken! I had to write a small utility to encode files w/ Reed-Solomon and then merge them on the other side so they could be recovered when partially damaged.

you know, jheriko, i was thinking just that a few days ago

that is a proper question, however.

usually art is associated (sterotypically and maybe only in Redneck Iowa, USA) with women

i do consider math (and more revelently AVS) art

but usually (sterotypically again) math is assosiated with guys


so, where are the artsymathnerdettes?

(i say that with total malevolence: i consider myself a math nerd)

Aren't your apes smaller than 700kb?

Why not go and buy some floppy disks, they cost practically nothing. Although saying that most of my floppies are old MS-DOS and PC-DOS install/upgrade disks with a few old driver disks mixed in.

EDIT: Cool, simultaneous posting

well i dunno about you europeans

but in the great country of america, you would hop in your SUV, drive on the wonderfully paved highways(sarcastic) and pop into the local Wal-Mart

i love it here
Everyone should move to america, it would make things so much better

Karnov: actually for those exact same reasons I think people should not move to the US. Living in small cardboard houses all built next to eachother in giant suburbs, connected to everything through nicely paved highways, the nearest shop a 10min drive away. During the day you spend your life in a cubicle totally devoid of any natural light whatsoever, for something you don't really care about anyway in the greatest oligarchy (capitalism) since ancient Rome.

And there we have it. 'damn commies', capitalism is good. And the US is the best thing to happen to the world since WW2 right?
Ugh.

Like Iraq isn't at all about oil, but about spreading *cough* democracy around.

A good question... how can capitalism be fair when there are people who own billions of dollars? How can you own something that is worth more than a person's entire salary over his entire life? And isn't capitalism just an oligarchy where the masses don't seem to mind their disadvantage because of the high standard of life? And who says capitalism would work if it was spread to the rest of the world? I mean a lot of industries depend on third-world countries' cheap labor market to produce cheaply and massively.

So yes, I do harbour a lot of resentment against the US, but I know damn well why. And please don't reply with 'without the US you'd all be speaking German!' crap, because that's exactly the things you shouldn't get spoonfed in school.

Please do not start an america good/bad discussion. I will get banned from the forums if it happens because I *H-A-T-E* america in the same way as satan hates god. I've already written several pages into this box and deleted them in restraint.

(note: I hate the government and the countries 'ideals', not the people who live there)

Stick to talking about APEs please.

I think any mod who deleted a well-informed, non-insulting discussion about politics is wrong. Granted it might be off-topic, but then again if we'd delete *everything* non-AVS/Winamp we'd have to be ultra-strict.

I don't 'hate' the US like Jheriko describes his feelings, but I do think they're doing something fundamentally wrong. And I don't hold US-citizens personally responsive for that, but I do think that they should be aware of what's going on rather than swallowing what the US media says. Things like 11 september seemed to make the US go 'what's wrong with the world' rather than 'what's wrong with us?', which indicates a serious problem in the masses' self-relativation abilities.

Anyway I won't post anymore about this, so I hope we can leave it like this without unnecessary deletes. After all, a mod may have power, but we're the ones who stick around and make use of the forums daily to stay in touch with eachother . I do agree on banning warez or illegal things because it can get Nullsoft into trouble, but politics is not taboo.

Okay, i didn't have things deleted by a mod, i spent ages typing into the 'your reply:' box and deleting what I had typed because it just made me realise that i have really strong beliefs about american involvement in world politics and that I shouldn't go spouting off on these forums about politics since that isn't what they are here for. I did go spouting off on the general discussion forum once about this topic (hence my large number of posts) and it just got really carried away to the point where the thread was going to be closed. I'm sorry if I killed the 'conversation' but I think it is best anyway since a lot of people have strongly conflicting views about these things and discussing them only gives us cause for animosity.

Thank you for respecting my request.
