Dear friends, foes and others,
Here's my first jitter external made while experimenting how to integrate OpenCL into Jitter.
I've used the noise-generating OpenCL example from apple's dev site, and tried to integrate it into an Jitter external. It seems that it works fairly well and since it is useful on its own I thought I'd share it.
It comes with three files: external, help file and .cl kernel file.
The kernel file source code is compiled on the object instantiation, so you can tweak it to generate completely different output instead of the noise. Only caveat is that you can't change function names and parameters as these are hardcoded into external.
Many thanks to all the people posting in dev forums,
Tim for posting the new max sdk/manual which is understandable even to n00bs like me and
Jean-Marc Pelletier for making his library open-source, I learned a lot from looking at his code.
The external is mac, 10.6.2, intel only.
