Neon glow


The jit.fluoride object does a cheap approximation of a neon glow effect. Individual cell values fade into a specified color as they approach a luminance value. Cell values greater than the luminance value fade to black. Values outside of a tolerance boundary are passed. The jit.fluoride object can work on an input matrix in either greyscale or color, depending on the setting of its mode attribute.

Information for Jitter Matrix Operator (MOP) messages and attributes to this object


Name Type g/s Description
glow float The color of the glow in the form red green blue (default = 0. 1. 0.) All color values should be in the range 0.-1.
lum float The luminosity threshold for the glow effect (default = 0.88)
mode int Output mode setting (default = 0 (greyscale))
0 = output is converted to greyscale after glow is applied
1 = output retains its color after glow is applied
tol float Tolerance level (or width) of the color range affected by the glow (default = 0.2)
