Working with Pixel Bender shaders
Flash Player 10 and later, Adobe AIR 1.5 and
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.
Pixel Bender support is available starting in Flash Player
10 and Adobe AIR 1.5. Pixel Bender blends, filters, and fills are
not supported under GPU rendering.
