NVIDIA Releases Convolution Filters Sample

NVIDIA has recently posted an example which shows various methods of implementing convolution filters in OpenGL using Cg. The sample code supports both 1D separable filters (such as Gaussian blur) and 2D filters (such as disc blurs). The code shows how to take advantage of bilinear texture filtering so that only half the usual number of texture samples are required for separable filters. It also demonstrates how to implement steerable filters, where the width of the filter can vary from pixel to pixel.


Commenting will be coming soon. In the meantime, feel free to create a discussion topic on the forums.
