PictureEffectsRaw Xojo Plugin

BlendEffectRaw Class (console safe)

Effect to Blend raw bitmaps or to draw one image to another with a mask use the BlendEffectRaw class.

Supports:
  • 8 bit per channel bitmaps

  • RGB color spaces

  • Gray color spaces

  • CMYK color spaces


  • This class supports use of multiple CPU cores.

    IRawBitmapProcessor

    Properties

    BlendMode (console safe) Set this property to define a special blend mode. This can be any value from the BlendEffectRaw.BlendModeValues enum.
    FillBitmap (console safe) The RawBitmap to draw onto the source RawBitmap.
    FillMask (console safe) To limit the filtering to certain pixels then set a RawBitmapMask instance to define the mask to this property.
    Location (console safe) Use this property to define where on the src picture the fillPicture should be drawn.
    Opacity (console safe) Defines the opacity value of the FillBitmap.
    Size (console safe) Use this property to limit the size of the FillBitmap.
    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 taking in parameters for the various of settings of the blend.
    Apply (console safe) Applies the effect on a RawBitmap image with parameters that have been set on the class instance.

    Enumerations

    BlendModeValuesEnum that defines blend modes.

    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 four 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 four 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 four 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 four CPU cores, but it will be slower or best case same speed as using the correct setting for such machine.
