Second even bigger improvement for Distorts

Post by anthony » 2010-09-27T18:53:18-07:00

IM v6.6.4-8

With major help from Professor Nicolas Robidoux and his PHD student Chantal Racette, I have been finally able to replace the "High Quality EWA" resampling method that IM has been using since it was first developed with a "Clamped EWA" resampling method.

This is a major improvement for Distorting images, especially those images that are not being resized (scaled) to any great extent. The "HQ-EWA" method generally make very very 'fuzzy' images. The new method is no where near as 'fuzzy' producing much clearer results.
