    As I wrote before we target the end of the year. This was the target, but it will be more likely for january.

    Unfortunately it took quiet a bit of time to get a PCIE G5 with extra PCIE 3D cards for finalizing the multi-projection development.

    The good news is that the extra time allowed me to integrate CoreVideo/CoreImage in the engine. I'm sure everybody will be pretty happy about that.

    Neat!
    But what does that mean, specifically?

    I think what they are talking about is that many of the effects/video manipulations are embedded in the OS. In this way, if these effects already reside in the OS, and effects are used, that will result in a speed bump for us. The technicalities I am not sure of. But I believe that Tiger will roar with core image, etc. :!:

    CoreImage means extremely clear and fast graphics output for mac users! anyone with tiger who has had the chance to try out arkaos VJ "HW" version will know what i mean. it just rocks. that M8 2.5 will have it makes my day :D

    and if i may add in, my wish would be to have audio analysis to assign a frequency to each effect/layer. and to have more transitions, like chromakey and lumakey, or slides and wipes...

    More information regarding CoreImage can be found here:

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/coreimage/

    It is important to note that CoreImage requires a modern GPU or it will fall back to its software render (->very slow).

    One question :
    there will be 2 version of 2.5, one with coreimage/corevideo support and one without ?

    My GPU don't support CoreImage/CoreVideo and I'm afraid it will be very slow on my mac.
    What is your opinion on this ?

    Thanks
    Olivier

    There will be an option in the preferences to switch from the software engine to the CI engine. In other words, the old engine will continue to be supported.

    Is it just me or does this topic just keep telling me that its been updated, when it hasn't.... I keep coming back and seeing the orange icon and thinking "oh! maybe theres an announcement" then once again reading Yves old post about toggling the Core Image... very strange

    *sigh* ah well.

    Not just you, I get that too.
    Reckon the forum-engine-software whatever is getting overexcited about the
    next version too and keeps posting the orange flag up on this topic - strange!!!

    Yves,

    will you be able to tell us which machines/GPUs will benefit from coreimage and which machines should use the original engine?

    Actually it's kind of black magic to know which cards supports or does not support CI.

    You can find a partial list on the Apple web site, here:

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/coreimage/

    It seems that some other cards are supported. Also I think (but I might be wrong) that some effects may be supported by some cards (depending of the complexity of the shader) while some others not. When the cards do not support CI, it falls down to altivec optimized code which is bad (but not as bad as non-vectorized CPU code).

    It seems that the best is to give a try on your machine. there are several freewares out there that allow you to test CI filters.

    Yves.
