so much more. We now see that users can not only use it to make incredible patterns, they can also make photo-realistic illustrations and pictures. Most exciting, is that they can also use it to build reusable filters that will work in other applications like Phoenix, our image editor. Oh yeah, and this is entirely browser-based.
This time around Aviary superstar Meowza shows how to build a comic-book-a-lizer filter. He uses it to convert standard stock footage of a woman screaming for her life, into a cheery comic book illustration of a woman screaming for her life. And then performs the same courtesy on the damsel's gunman.
This filter made heavy use of threshold, masking, simple shapes and melting nodes.
Our plan is to allow users to create and sell their filters to other users. So if you make something really cool - like a neon glow filter, you can charge whatever you like and compile your filter so the canvas composition stays transparent to the buyer. Your filter would then be available to them to use in other Aviary apps!
