Just to begin, this is my first post here ( hello ), and I’m relatively new to OpenGL, so take it easy!
I’m building a visualisation creation tool for my end of year university project using Processing, which is a java-based IDE that uses a version of jogl for OpenGL based graphics. I’m attempting to create something as similar to most visualisation tools on the market today ( Winamp’s AVS / Milkdrop / Giess ) that sort of thing.
I’ve worked out a few things so far, additive blending for one, however there are a few other things I’d like to attempt to get in there to make it as pretty as possible. ( so if anyone has any suggestions on improving the graphical style, I’m all ears! )
Take Milkdrop for Example :
Now that is a screenshot taken from milkdrop ( which I believe is directX based ). I was wondering what the best method would be in order to get that “blurring/blending” effect used there. I mean, it appears like it’s a saved image that is being distorted, but I’m not sure exactly how that effect could be achieved.
Essentially I’d also love to add a motion blur effect too, however the best way I’ve found to do it ( accum buffer ) only works on my desktop computer, and I doubt it works on any of the computers at uni.
Sorry if this post is a little vague! It’s late and my brain isn’t functioning all too well! Basically a push in the right direction would be fantastic!
