Yeah, it's already in kCGBlendModeCopy

Posted by Gus Mueller on Fri 03 Feb 2017 at 13:31 from 72.130.81.x
For the CGContextDrawImage slowness, try setting the blend mode to copy on the current context (kCGBlendModeCopy I think) and that should speed things up considerably.

Thanks, CGContextSetAllowsFontSmoothing(false) does the trick!

> CoreText produces quite different output for CGBitmapContexts created with different byte orderings

The second is correct. Thin text on macOS means that LCD font rendering ("font smoothing" + subpixel) is being disabled, for instance because it doesn't think it will go straight to the screen, or because it's a weird pixel format.

Very cool!

This is great- I see a female in the waters-you obviously love textures and tones!

Well-I had little idea to the depth of your creativeness.
Interesting collection here Justin.
I get good vibes from all this stuffs.

Wow this is really beautiful!
Though I can't tell if those are spears, or fields of wheat. :P

I really like ambiguous and mysterious this one is! ^^

This scene has a certain depth to it which impacted upon me immediately.

Funny, I can't see it anymore, it's gone. Spooky :D

20 years ago I had a dream. I strove to find a way of working where the software would get out of the way and let me pour out the music.

Of course, REAPER manages that uniquely. But it's the spirit behind the software that has me captivated. That's the most remarkable thing.

Ironically, the year I dropped music making was the same year REAPER was born - I didn't know it existed until 3 months ago.

All I can say is I salute you sir.

Love the art by the way.

Keep up the good work mate. Your Win32 craftsmanship is extrordinary.
Hope for more happy years to come.

the orange bit was a towel or something, now it just looks like a puddle :(

Posted by Justin on Mon 07 Dec 2015 at 00:21 from 74.72.45.x
They mostly are smaller :)

Posted by Tale on Sun 06 Dec 2015 at 17:27 from 77.170.68.x
I didn't realise your drawings were that big... Cool!

Posted by Adara on Fri 04 Dec 2015 at 00:48 from 74.205.198.x
Hmmm.. now I think this one is my favorite ,,,

Posted by Adara on Fri 04 Dec 2015 at 00:46 from 74.205.198.x
I really like this one!

Posted by Adara on Fri 04 Dec 2015 at 00:45 from 74.205.198.x
This one really draws me in! Nice!

Posted by Adara on Fri 04 Dec 2015 at 00:43 from 74.205.198.x
Very pretty, I like the textures,,,

Posted by Brad Sucks on Mon 23 Nov 2015 at 14:31 from 74.14.199.x
Ahhhh I was just about to ask you about this kinda thing, since I haven't been able to figure out how to control my track/plugin automation with MIDI. Awesome.

Posted by argee on Sun 22 Nov 2015 at 23:48 from 207.6.166.x
Glad to see that you are still happy to work on it and congratulations on exceeding an hour and then some!

Posted by Tale on Sat 21 Nov 2015 at 09:36 from 77.170.68.x
Congratulations! So I guess WDL is even older than 10 years, right? Anyway, here's to the next 10 years!

Posted by William Fields on Sat 21 Nov 2015 at 02:13 from 71.175.0.x
I thank you deeply for it! I wouldn't be able to make the art that I do without it.

Nice Stuff!

no real news, but the program I linked to should still work-ish...

Posted by Beau Gunderson on Tue 10 Nov 2015 at 00:07 from 23.252.51.x
loving these

Posted by Olof on Fri 23 Oct 2015 at 01:09 from 195.198.160.x
Wow, I missed this when you were working on it. Would be really cool to get this working for converting my old .xm-files... Any news?

Posted by Martin Saleteg on Mon 12 Oct 2015 at 09:05 from 80.66.237.x
The CMGetSystemProfile API has been deprecated since 10.6, and Apple has decided to remove it entirely in the 10.11 SDK. This should have the following effect as what you have found:

colorSpace = ::CGDisplayCopyColorSpace(::CGMainDisplayID());

Posted by Justin on Sat 20 Jun 2015 at 23:50 from 98.14.87.x
Hmm, I'd imagine there should be some way to get those APIs to work. Otherwise, you could enumerate all of the available monitors' colorspaces, and try each to see which is fastest (at runtime), ha.

Hi, Justin.
I am trying to profile gtk application on OSX. It uses heavily cairo framework, and performance is really bad compared to windows. I found this article and it is a great solution. It worked for me fine except when I move application to second monitor. As I understand it is caused by the fact that second monitor has it's own colorspace, so OS X perform colorspace transformation on it.
I can avoid colorspace transformations on second monitor by using its specific colorspace
GColorSpaceRef cs = CGDisplayCopyColorSpace (SecondDisplay);
So the only thing left is to dynamically detect on which display application is running. And it seems impossible task. I can't find any way to detect it
I tried


but it seem that device space is not global space, so i cant use this api.
I was trying to compare affine transforms for each device, but nothing seem helps.
Do you have any ideas?

PS Thanks for this research !

It's a hard knock life.

Updates! github.com/justinfrankel/WHUMP has the source, and also now there is visualization, because the 90s were awesome!

Posted by Justin on Mon 23 Mar 2015 at 03:36 from 98.14.87.x
Just added a feature, now you can append #pq= to the URL in order for it to prepopulate a playlist, e.g.: music.1014.org/whump.php#pq=%28Alone%29

Posted by Icchan on Tue 24 Feb 2015 at 00:10 from 130.234.187.x
Hmm... you're drawing with intermediate mode with OpenGL... it was deprecated in the newest versions of OGL precicely because it has huge overhead in small draws.

So maybe you're not getting the speed boost you're looking for since you're bound by the state switching taking most of the time instead of the drawing itself?

Posted by Justin on Fri 20 Feb 2015 at 15:55 from 98.14.87.x
sure, just give me credit :)

Have you thought of adding @2x support for retina macbooks? That would be awesome! :D

As musicbynumbers said, this would be GREAT in reaper. Much easier than occasional Video Editor usage. I suspect this could get a lot of use, even if just for fading between jpegs.

Posted by John on Sat 03 Jan 2015 at 15:53 from 23.114.218.x
Justin, can you tell me if Reaper (as released currently) can losslessly accept, store, play, and save 32-bit integer ASIO files? I'm assuming no math processing on the files. Just record, store, playback, and file save.

Posted by charlesaudio@gmail.com on Mon 15 Dec 2014 at 04:51 from 192.222.152.x
Basic and simple video editing (fades and transition) would be awesome to have into REAPER. I hope it will be possible soon.
