Have you ever wanted to play with OpenCL without having to setup a development environment ?

It’s now very simple, thanks a new demo from JavaCL

It’s called “Interactive Image Transform Demo” and as its name implies it’s here to play with kernels that read an image and write another image.

Here’s what it does :

  • helps loading input images and saving output images
  • lets you edit image transforming OpenCL kernels, with syntax coloring
  • provides you with a few samples you can inspire from (Sobel operator, blurring…)
  • lets you run your kernels in a snap (just hit F5), with automatic chaining of kernels if there is more than one kernel detected

As usual, feedback is highly welcome !
