glsl-fast-gaussian-blur - optimized single-pass blur shaders for GLSL

  •        253

Optimized separable gaussian blurs for GLSL. This is adapted from Efficient Gaussian Blur with Linear Sampling.The function blurs in a single direction. For correct results, the texture should be using gl.LINEAR filtering.

glsl-optimizer - GLSL optimizer based on Mesa's GLSL compiler

A C++ library that takes GLSL shaders, does some GPU-independent optimizations on them and outputs GLSL or Metal source back. Optimizations are function inlining, dead code removal, copy propagation, constant folding, constant propagation, arithmetic optimizations and so on. Apparently quite a few mobile platforms are pretty bad at optimizing shaders; and unfortunately they also lack offline shader compilers. So using a GLSL optimizer offline before can make the shader run much faster on a platform like that. See performance numbers in this blog post.

Gaussian Blur

A Gaussian blur is the result of blurring an image by a Gaussian function. It is a widely used effect in graphics software, typically to reduce image noise and reduce detail.

glslCanvas - Simple tool to load GLSL shaders on HTML Canvas using WebGL

GlslCanvas is JavaScript Library that helps you easily load GLSL Fragment and Vertex Shaders into an HTML canvas. I have used this in my Book of Shaders and glslEditor. That's all! glslCanvas will automatically load a WebGL context in that <canvas> element, compile the shader and animate it for you.

glslEditor - Simple WebGL Fragment Shader Editor

Friendly GLSL Shader editor based on Codemirror compatible with glslViewer (C++/OpenGL ES) and glslCanvas (JS/WebGL). Was originaly develop to work as a embebed editor for The Book of Shaders. But now have grown as a stand alone Web app. Thanks to their compatibility with other apps of this ecosystems like glslViewer that runs in the RaspberryPi directly from console, GlslEditor interact with other projects like allowing the user to export the shaders to frames with only one button.

gamma - glsl shaders made simple

Gamma is a substrate for graphics software, such as games and data visualization tools. It presents a simple, composable language for representing GLSL shaders. Technically, Gamma is an EDSL that hosts GLSL within Clojurescript. It is inspired by Carlos Scheidegger's Lux and Conal Elliot's Vertigo and Pan. Gamma targets the WebGL subset of the OpenGL ES 1.0 Shading Language. Gamma can be used a la carte to compile shader source, without adopting Clojure/Clojurescript for your runtime application.

glslViewer - Live GLSL coding render for MacOS and Linux

Live-coding console tool that renders GLSL Shaders. Every file you use (frag/vert shader, images and geometries) are watched for modification, so they can be updated on the fly. This was tested with Ubuntu 16.04.

Iterative refocus plug-in for GIMP

Iterative refocus GIMP plug-in can be used to refocus images acquired by a defocused camera, blurred by gaussian or motion blur or any combination of these. Adaptive or static area smoothing can be used to remove the so called \quot;ringing\quot; effect.

glsl-blend - glsl photoshop blending modes. glslify formatted.

Photoshop blending modes in glsl for use with glslify. Blending modes include Screen, Multiply, Soft Light, Vivid Light, Overlay, etc. Implementations sourced from this article on Photoshop math. Blend modes can be imported individually using the standard glslify preprocessor syntax.

shadergraph - Functional GLSL Linker

ShaderGraph is a library for linking together GLSL snippets into stand-alone shaders. It is mainly meant to build complicated shaders 100% programmatically. But it can also act as the back-end to a live graph-based shader editor, as its graph model is persistent. Snippets can be simple one-liners, or multi-function source files. Snippets can also declare callbacks, as functions without bodies, linked in from elsewhere. This allows complicated execution flows to be built very easily.

ShaderParticleEngine - A GLSL-heavy particle engine for THREE

The purpose of this library is to make creating particle effects using THREE.js and WebGL as simple as possible. The heavy-lifting is done by the GPU, freeing up CPU cycles. Emitters are created by first creating an instance of SPE.Group. It is in the group where ShaderMaterial settings are applied, and the texture for all emitters added to that group is set. Multiple groups can be created, but if efficiency is a high-priority then as few groups as possible should be created. The group takes care of uploading emitter data to the GPU for simulation and rendering, so the fewer chunks of data that get sent the better.

ShaderSketches - KodeLife shader sketches I wrote while commuting

This is a repository that stores GLSL shader sketches I created while commuting every day. You can see GIFs of these sketches from my Tumblr. I'm using KodeLife shader editor and GPD Win handheld PC for sketching. In my opinion, this is the best combination of portable development. I created all these sketches while standing in a train.

ofxFX - Unlocking the GPU Power on openFrameworks with this add-on for that make easy to use GLSL Shaders

I start this addon while I was working on Efecto Mariposa. Is the result of adapting different well know algorithms to GLSL Shaders for openFrameworks. An important feature of ofxFX is it ability for fast-prototyping mixing different classes using the << operator.

XBImageFilters - OpenGL ES 2-based image and real-time camera filters for iOS

XBImageFilters allows you to obtain filtered versions of any image or from the camera in realtime. It uses OpenGL ES 2 to filter the images through fragment shaders you write yourself so you can filter your images in whatever way you want and it is super fast. In this screenshot of the sample we have on the top half of the screen a regular UIImageView with contentMode set to UIViewContentModeTop, and on the bottom half a XBFilteredImageView with the same image with contentMode set to UIViewContentModeBottom and a filter [a GLSL fragment shader] that outputs the luminance of the pixel color.
