kingeric1992 - that runs. Thank you kindly.

...though if I define ScreenSize.x locally I get a better frame rate than using the global...

actual res 1280x720
defined locally 1280 = 13.8fps
defined locally 1920 = 12.6fps
detected 1280 = 11.3fps

and if I turn the samples down to 4 manually and get rid of the &&s then I gets
defined locally 1280 = 13.8fps
detected 1280 = 13.1fps

so it seems most of the drop is coming from having the && bit in the loop that refers to ScreenSize.x,
and it looks like I'm still better off just leaving it at 6

(note those framrates are on an old RadeonHD4500 hence lowness)

It's not like it require dynamically changing looping times pixel by pixel or frame by frame, leaving it as constant can let compiler decides what is best to do.

If you could send me the code, I could maybe find some specific performance improvements. Can't help much if I know there IS a loop, I must know what's inside. I managed to make my DOF shader (that works similiar to GP65CJ042 DOF) to run smoothly at a quality count that is 3 times GP's which is an insane tap count.

ScreenSize is constant, it always global in dx9 and runs at same speed, so it's code compilation issues when user don't know what is actually will be compiled. If/else statements for changing samples count is bad idea, because there is no native functions for that and they are compiled to lot of math. Integer is not supported, if you will try to use it in the cycle, performance will be lower. Finally, everything depends from cycle code, it may be running with full amount of samples always. Follow Marty McFly suggestion.

Spectacular screenshots. Great work.
Looking forward to playing with this.
Any progress?

Just wanted to BUMP this thread to see if there is any chance for a release of this beautiful effect?

oops, I've been a tad distracted (life, works, ect) and kinda forgot I didn't post this thing

Added a multi-pass option and some contrasting colour stuff to it so I'll up this version shortly

Looks interesting. But colors looks more like blurring of old games with 8 bit colors. I guess operations should be computed in different color space for proper gradients like paints on paper. May be i'm wrong, don't know implementation of effect, just what logic says.

Very glad to hear you are still developing this! I look forward to being able to tinker around with this effect :)

posted on the nexus in the new .fx format

Also can anyone tell me how to retain a focus value between frames?
