I read the paper.lathspell wrote:Not sure if this was mentioned before. It starts with some marketing phrases but ends with a little information about what they (AMD + Corel) are working on: http://web.amd.com/assets/CustomerRefer ... 202014.pdf
Now I'm confused whether I have to buy an AMD based computer/GPU/whatever thingy just to get i.e. the new Local Contrast feature in ASP2 (if it ever makes it into the real world) ...
ETA: Ok, that paper is saying quite the same (and a little bit more) like the January video featuring Rick Champagne shown on facebook ...
It seems that the reworking of ASP code for v2 will focus around providing or maintaining the speed advantage that Bibble RAW processing was always famed for.
This is very important these days as the size of the images delivered by cameras for processing is even more significant. So making sure that OpenCL is fully optimised and exploited will give ASP advantage.
They do seem to be making progress but as I cant see the degree of progress we can only wait if they dont tell us details of progress!
For me I only hope that the ASP SDK is not left behind as with the new RAW support and the increase in speed then I will be happy to use the v2 product.
I do hope that the work that the beta-testers group did for the GUI changes also get carried forward as this can only improve workflow and increase speed and ease of use.
All in all I can only say that I look forward to the new version for testing and real use. I hope they include RAW support for the Fuji X-Trans sensor as I have purchased into this system and use it with my Nikons.
