Been having a relatively successful time in regards of researching and creating OpenCL image filters. Thus far I haven’t really compared and contrasted with the results of Core Image versus OpenCL, more on that later … For the meantime here’s … Continue reading
Just sat awaiting an appointment and able to view the latest news on BBC TV and Sky TV. The main difference being the measured and assured translation of the French speaking police and reporters in Annecy on the BBC which … Continue reading
I must be getting laid back as I get older, I’ve received two calls in the past five days from a company pushing the same line as Tech Support Pro and yet haven’t chosen to record the event. I wonder … Continue reading
I’ve recently been exploring different ways of making sounds from images and images from sound and even feeding the images resulting from sounds into the sounds from images process. I’ve been using Quartz Composer Workflow compositions, often Core Image kernel … Continue reading
Quartz Composer [Version 4.6 (148)] – Framework Version 5.0 (236.7) [♥] – it just works [the Movie Loader patch that is [which didn't work in prior versions of QC framework on Lion upon my particular build factor of an iMac]] … Continue reading
Whilst tinkering and doodling with some code in Quartz Composer, I stumbled upon a glitchy effect that gives a raw and jagged graphic result. The image feed was based upon that derived directly without resizing from the Waveform Image output … Continue reading
There really is nothing that quite beats upfront bilking of security details – see email quoted below, received today and don’t send them your details .. [I love the use of double spaced lines and a warning code – classy … Continue reading
I had thought to just leave this matter well and truly alone, even going to the extent of not publishing a reply to the comment sent latterly from Tech Support Pro themselves, or at least someone called Mark Wilson, about … Continue reading
Just been experimenting again with both Collada DAE mesh structure creation using audio structures as the primary data input and rendering the output to GLSL shaders. The structures rendered are also varied in regards of the texture coordinate source, being … Continue reading
A recent post upon Kineme’s forum regarding a Mesh based 3D compositional scene by dust had prompted me to sort out some DAE files, just to see if the overall logic of the piece was as functional in Snow’s Quartz Composer as it was in Lion’s. This led me to look further into the matter of the Mesh Filter used and subsequently seeing if this could be utilised with success upon dynamically generated meshes…Continue reading
A recent , very pretty use of Collada DAE files in a post upon Kineme by Dustin O’Connor worked very neatly upon Lion, yet was reported as failing upon Snow by various postees upon that forum.
I duly went about booting into Snow, as running a hack of version of Snow’s QC in Lion didn’t show the problem experienced, as that hack utilised the Lion framework and not Snow’s.
A boot time check was required.
Suffice to say that I found I could then thoroughly reproduce the problem and also came about a workaround [http://kineme.net/composition/dust/grassscene#comment-24052] …..Continue reading

I am getting the following error when coding up an image processing kernel to handle video, the kernel name is video_kernel. The error I get, in CLBuilder, is “Invalid Kernel name” – it isn’t ‘Main‘ name problem. It isn’t a … Continue reading
Kineme Core – you saved my lazy assed coding – not for the first time neither. There I was chatting on my mobile to a friend of mine who was wending their way back from Shotton to Abergele [major league … Continue reading
Without Prejudice. When someone calls me up and claims that they have intercepted troublesome system messages between my computer and Microsoft’s servers my ears prick up, even as my heart sinks. For the second time this month, a company founded … Continue reading
