The 27 Permutions Of The RGB Channels

Sometimes it’s nice to do something really simple.

Core Image Filter Kernels:

kernel vec4 RRR(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rrra; }
kernel vec4 RRG(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rrga; }
kernel vec4 RRB(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rrba; }
kernel vec4 RGG(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rgga; }
kernel vec4 RGB(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rgba; }
kernel vec4 RGR(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rgra; }
kernel vec4 RBR(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rbra; }
kernel vec4 RBG(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rbga; }
kernel vec4 RBB(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).rbba; }

kernel vec4 GRR(sampler image) { return sample(image, samplerCoord(image)).grra; }

    Hey a|x

    You rock!

    Does your site have a global RSS feed for new entries?

    Maybe I’m just dense, but I haven’t been able to locate it.

    All the best

      Thanks for the feedback!
      I’m sorry I haven’t updated it recently- I’ve been away so haven’t had a chance.

      Re. the RSS feed: in Safari on the Mac, you can get to the RSS feed for the main page by just going to the site front page, and clicking on the RSS link on the right of the Address Bar. Not sure about other browsers and OSes though. I’ve added a link to the feeds for posts and comments to the top of the right sidebar now, anyway, so if you can’t get to it any other way, you can now use those links to subscribe.
