A container of image data and information for use in a custom image processor.
Mac Catalyst 13.0+
Your app does not define classes that adopt this protocol; Core Image provides an object of this type when applying a custom image processor you create with a CIImageProcessorKernel subclass.
In your image processor class' processWithInputs:arguments:output:error: method, use the provided CIImageProcessorInput object to access the image data and supporting information to perform your custom image processing routine. For example, if you process the image using a Metal shader, use the metalTexture property to bind the image as an input texture. Or, if you process the image using a CPU-based routine, use the baseAddress property to access pixel data in memory.
To finish setting up or performing your image processing routine, use the provided CIImageProcessorOutput object to return processed pixel data to Core Image.
