|Description:||Image Effect Library (0.0.4-2002)|
Blitz is an interm image effect library that people can use until KDE4.1 is released. KImageEffect, the old image effect class is being dropped for KDE4.0 and the replacement, Quasar, won't be ready until KDE4.1. Blitz gives people something to use in the meantime. At first glance Blitz may look like a KImageEffect2. That is what I originally intended. Nonetheless most of the effects have significantly changed so may operate differently. Many of the methods in KImageEffect were quick hacks and ports I made. With Blitz I finally sat down, read my old code, and reimplemented everything. In some cases this was just code cleanup and bugfixing but in many other cases I used better algorithms and/or custom MMX code. Expect differences, hopefully for the better. I'm a little older, a tad bit wiser, and a heck of a lot less drunk these days >:)
