Working with Pixel Bender shaders
Adobe Pixel Bender Toolkit allows developers to write shaders that create graphical effects and perform other image and data processing. The Pixel Bender bytecode can be executed in ActionScript to apply the effect to image data or visual content. Using Pixel Bender shaders in ActionScript gives you the capability to create custom visual effects and perform data processing beyond the built-in capabilities in ActionScript.
Note: Pixel Bender support is available starting in Flash Player 10 and Adobe AIR 1.5.
