I discovered a couple things since I posted the Channel9 Video Slurper instructions.
I found a way to increase the speed. Normally it seems throttled at 25K, but if you enter 999999 in Options/Limits/Max Transfer Rate, it will go to 100K.
Hopefully the redesign of Channel9 doesn’t break the setup.
Here’s a video on Channel 9 from last year showing the incredible things you can do with hardware accelerated graphics in WPF. I found it totally awesome and was amazed by the incredible performance.
Here’s a textbox on a waving cloth. I can see somebody doing something with a flag with this effect:
Here’s a 3D window.
I don’t know what the practical applications are in my line of work, but it sure is cool.
The original video includes some more effects that I would describe as more normal video effects such as morphing and color transforms, but with great performance and some extra goodies and it all seems to work with video.
