This week’s Featured Project is Native Filter Demo by Mansewiz. We liked this project for its innovation & freshness to showcase the imaging capabilities of Windows Phone 8 devices, and also because of the clarity of its associated wiki article.
The project demonstrates the native code(C/C++) support feature of WP8 SDK which is utilized to create a real time filter for camera. As an example(show in pic above) , a simple gray filter is implemented which converts the camera input on the fly and show the result onscreen.The project also describes as how to use ARM Neon intrinsics to improve the speed of the filters and as well as how to feed camera frame into a MediaElement.
Also for those who want to try the project at their own end, its Source Code is available as well.
Lastly I would like to thank the project owner for sharing this knowledgeable project with us. Hoping more of such work will be done in future as well.
