Image Vectors – ConvolutionFilter Fun
As a ActionScript Developer, I was aware that there was a ConvolutionFilter in flash, but I pretty much ignored it because it didn’t seem very useful. But a couple of days ago I was playing with the nice ConvolutionFilter explorer by Sakri and I noticed it can expose some interesting info about a bitmap.
I managed to extract some sort of direction vectors for the pixels:
Source code (with spaghetti example below): Image_vector_source
It still is quite useless at this point, but with that vector info you can create some pretty cool effects. For example, something similar like the Quasimado Spaghetti Incident pictures: (Click on the image to see the drawing in action)
