Overview

The CIFilter class produces a CIImage object as output. Typically, a filter takes one or more images as input. Some filters, however, generate an image based on other types of input parameters. The parameters of a CIFilter object are set and retrieved through the use of key-value pairs.

You use the CIFilter object in conjunction with other Core Image classes, such as CIImage, CIContext, and CIColor, to take advantage of the built-in Core Image filters when processing images, creating filter generators, or writing custom filters.

CIFilter objects, are not mutable. A CIFilter object cannot be shared safely among threads. If you app is multithreaded, each thread must create its own CIFilter object. Otherwise, your app could behave unexpectedly.

To get a quick overview of how to set up and use Core Image filters, see Core Image Programming Guide.

Subclassing Notes

You can subclass CIFilter in order to create custom filter effects:

See Core Image Programming Guide for details.

Methods to Override

Regardless of whether your subclass provides its effect by chaining filters or implementing its own kernel, you should:

Special Considerations

The CIFilter class automatically manages input parameters when archiving, copying, and deallocating filters. For this reason, your subclass must obey the following guidelines to ensure proper behavior:

Class Methods

filterArrayFromSerializedXMP:inputImageExtent:error:

Returns an array of filter objects de-serialized from XMP data.

+ (NSArray*)filterArrayFromSerializedXMP:(NSData *)xmpData inputImageExtent:(CGRect)extent error:(NSError **)outError
Parameters
xmpData

The XMP data created previously by calling serializedXMPFromFilters:inputImageExtent:.

extent

The extent of the image from which the XMP data was extracted.

outError

The address of an NSError object for receiving errors, otherwise nil.

filterNamesInCategories:

Returns an array of all published filter names that match all the specified categories.

+ (NSArray *)filterNamesInCategories:(NSArray *)categories
Parameters
categories

One or more of the filter category keys defined in “Filter Category Keys.” Pass nil to get all filters in all categories.

Return Value

An array that contains all published filter names that match all the categories specified by the categories argument.

Discussion

When you pass more than one filter category, this method returns the intersection of the filters in the categories. For example, if you pass the categories kCICategoryBuiltIn and kCICategoryColorAdjustment, you obtain all the filters that are members of both the built-in and color adjustment categories. But if you pass in kCICategoryGenerator and kCICategoryStylize, you will not get any filters returned to you because there are no filters that are members of both the generator and stylize categories. If you want to obtain all stylize and generator filters, you must call the filterNamesInCategories: method for each category separately and then merge the results.

filterNamesInCategory:

Returns an array of all published filter names in the specified category.

+ (NSArray *)filterNamesInCategory:(NSString *)category
Parameters
category

A string object that specifies one of the filter categories defined in “Filter Category Keys.”

filterWithName:

Creates a CIFilter object for a specific kind of filter.

+ (CIFilter *)filterWithName:(NSString *)name
Parameters
name

The name of the filter. You must make sure the name is spelled correctly, otherwise your app will run but not produce any output images. For that reason, you should check for the existence of the filter after calling this method.

Return Value

A CIFilter object whose input values are undefined.

Discussion

You should call setDefaults after you call this method or set values individually by calling setValue:forKey.

filterWithName:keysAndValues:

Creates a CIFilter object for a specific kind of filter and initializes the input values.

+ (CIFilter *)filterWithName:(NSString *)name keysAndValues:key0, ...
Parameters
name

The name of the filter. You must make sure the name is spelled correctly, otherwise your app will run but not produce any output images. For that reason, you should check for the existence of the filter after calling this method.

key0,

Discussion

Attribute keys are used for the attribute dictionary of a filter. Most entries in the attribute dictionary are optional. The attribute CIAttributeFilterName is mandatory. For a parameter, the attribute kCIAttributeClass is mandatory because it specifies the class name of the filter.

A parameter of type NSNumber does not necessarily need the attributes kCIAttributeMin and kCIAttributeMax. These attributes are not present when the parameter has no upper or lower bounds. For example, the Gaussian blur filter has a radius parameter with a minimum of 0 but no maximum value to indicate that all nonnegative values are valid.

kCICategoryDistortionEffect

A filter that reshapes an image by altering its geometry to create a 3D effect. Using distortion filters, you can displace portions of an image, apply lens effects, make a bulge in an image, and perform other operation to achieve an artistic effect.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryGeometryAdjustment

A filter that changes the geometry of an image. Some of these filters are used to warp an image to achieve an artistic effects, but these filters can also be used to correct problems in the source image. For example, you can apply an affine transform to straighten an image that is rotated with respect to the horizon.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryCompositeOperation

A filter operates on two image sources, using the color values of one image to operate on the other. Composite filters perform computations such as computing maximum values, minimum values, and multiplying values between input images. You can use compositing filters to add effects to an image, crop an image, and achieve a variety of other effects.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryHalftoneEffect

A filter that simulates a variety of halftone screens, to mimic the halftone process used in print media. The output of these filters has the familiar “newspaper” look of the various dot patterns. Filters are typically named after the pattern created by the virtual halftone screen, such as circular screen or hatched screen.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryColorAdjustment

A filter that changes color values. Color adjustment filters are used to eliminate color casts, adjust hue, and correct brightness and contrast. Color adjustment filters do not perform color management; ColorSync performs color management. You can use Quartz 2D to specify the color space associated with an image. For more information, see Color Management Overview and Quartz 2D Programming Guide.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryColorEffect

A filter that modifies the color of an image to achieve an artistic effect. Examples of color effect filters include filters that change a color image to a sepia image or a monochrome image or that produces such effects as posterizing.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryTransition

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryTileEffect

A filter that typically applies an effect to an image and then create smaller versions of the image (tiles), which are then laid out to create a pattern that’s infinite in extent.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.

Declared in CIFilter.h.

kCICategoryGenerator

A filter that generates a pattern, such as a solid color, a checkerboard, or a star shine. The generated output is typically used as input to another filter.

kCICategoryReduction

A filter that reduces image data. These filters are used to solve image analysis problems.

Available in iOS 5.0 and later.
