PictureEffectsRaw Xojo Plugin

BarrelDistortEffectRaw Class (console safe)

A class to do Barrel Distortion on pictures.



Barrel distortion comes from a lens effect which causes images to be spherised or inflated. Barrel distortion is often associated with wide angle lenses and typically occurs at the wide end of a zoom lens. The use of converters often amplifies the effect. Barrel distortion is most visible in images with perfectly straight lines, especially when they are close to the edge of the image frame.

This class is meant to fix images that suffer from Barrel Distortion, though it can also be used to create extreme barrel distortion for stylish design purposes.

Special thanks to Nick Loveday for all the ground work on this effect.

Supports:
  • 8 bit per channel bitmaps

  • 16 bit per channel bitmaps

  • RGB color spaces

  • Gray color spaces

  • CMYK color spaces

  • Synchronous and asynchronous modes supported


  • This class supports use of multiple CPU cores.

    class BarrelDistortEffectRaw implements

    IRawBitmapProcessor

    IRawBitmapProcessorAsync

    Properties

    BackColor (console safe) The backcolor to fill empty areas of the image with.
    Distortion (console safe) Defines how much the image should be distorted.
    HorizontalKeystone (console safe) Sets or gets the value of the Horizontal Keystone.
    Interpolate (console safe) Enables or disables interpolation.
    VerticalKeystone (console safe) Sets or gets the value of the Vertical Keystone.
    AsyncCompleted (Inherited) (console safe) Returns true if asynchronous execution has completed, else false.
    AsyncResult (Inherited) (console safe) Returns the result bitmap of asynchronous execution.
    Canceled (Inherited) (console safe) If this one returns true then the effects execution was canceled by a Progress handler.
    CPUCoreCount (Inherited) (console safe) Returns number of detected CPU cores on the running machine.
    ErrorCode (Inherited) (console safe) Returns error code after applying the effect. This value is a Constant defined in the PictureEffectsRawError module.
    MultiprocessingHint (Inherited) (console safe) Use this property to fine tune CPU usage for this algorithm. By default this property is set to zero (Automatic). This property accepts all constants that are defined in this class.
    ProgressHandler (Inherited) (console safe) Use this property to use a progress class to get progress feedback from this function. This class must be a class that Implements the IProgressHandler Interface which is defined in this plugin.

    Methods

    Apply (console safe) Applies the effect on a RawBitmap image with parameters that have been set on the class instance.
    ApplyAsync (console safe) Applies the effect asynchronously on a RawBitmap image with parameters that have been set on the class instance.
    Cancel (Inherited) (console safe) Cancels processing and waits for threads to come to full stop when in asynchronous execution.

    Constants

    CPU_USE_MACHINE_CORE_COUNT = -1 (Inherited) Uses exactly the number of available CPU cores in the machine. (Available here means on-line CPU cores, some laptops can put CPU cores off line in low battery situations)
    CPU_USE_AUTOMATIC = 0 (Inherited) Takes into account number of available CPU cores on the Machine and also tries to select the fastest way based on developer rating for each algorithm and picture size. (In simple algorithms then the fastest path is sometimes 2 or 3 CPU cores and not 4 CPU cores because of the overhead of managing multiple cores). In more complex algorithms then 3 or 4 cores are almost always faster than 2 cores.
    CPU_USE_1_CORE = 1 (Inherited) Uses one CPU core.
    CPU_USE_2_CORES = 2 (Inherited) Uses two CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than two CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
    CPU_USE_3_CORES = 3 (Inherited) Uses three CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than three CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
    CPU_USE_4_CORES = 4 (Inherited) Uses four CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than four CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
    CPU_USE_5_CORES = 5 (Inherited) Uses five CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than five CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
    CPU_USE_6_CORES = 6 (Inherited) Uses six CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than six CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
    CPU_USE_7_CORES = 7 (Inherited) Uses seven CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than seven CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
    CPU_USE_8_CORES = 8 (Inherited) Uses eight CPU cores. This setting will also work on machines with less than eight CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
