  2. Run pod install or pod update.
  3. Add import BBMetalImage to the Swift source file.

How to Use

Single Filter

Call filteredImage(with:) function of a filter is the simplest way to get filtered image synchronously.

let filteredImage = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3).filteredImage(with: image)

Filter Chain

Capture, Preview and Recording

The code below:

  1. Captures image and audio with a camera
  2. The image captured by the camera is processed by 3 filters
  3. The processed image is rendered to the metal view
  4. The processed image and audio are written to a video file
  5. Do something after writing the video file
// Hold camera and video writer
var camera: BBMetalCamera!
var videoWriter: BBMetalVideoWriter!

func setup() {
    // Set up camera to capture image
    camera = BBMetalCamera(sessionPreset: .hd1920x1080)

    // Set up 3 filters to process image
    let contrastFilter = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3)
    let lookupFilter = BBMetalLookupFilter(lookupTable: UIImage(named: "test_lookup")!.bb_metalTexture!)
    let sharpenFilter = BBMetalSharpenFilter(sharpeness: 1)

    // Set up metal view to display image
    let metalView = BBMetalView(frame: frame)
    view.addSubview(metalView)

    // Set up video writer
    let filePath = NSTemporaryDirectory() + "test.mp4"
    let url = URL(fileURLWithPath: filePath)
    videoWriter = BBMetalVideoWriter(url: url, frameSize: BBMetalIntSize(width: 1080, height: 1920))

    // Set camera audio consumer to record audio
    camera.audioConsumer = videoWriter

    // Set up filter chain
    camera.add(consumer: contrastFilter)
        .add(consumer: lookupFilter)
        .add(consumer: sharpenFilter)
        .add(consumer: metalView)

    sharpenFilter.add(consumer: videoWriter)

    // Start capturing
    camera.start()

    // Start writing video file
    videoWriter.start()
}

func finishRecording() {
    videoWriter.finish {
        // Do something after recording the video file
    }
}

Capture Image

There are two ways to capture image with camera. Use capturePhoto(completion:) function or takePhoto() function.

The capturePhoto(completion:) function runs faster and provides original frame texture. If the filter chain contains filter, we can get filtered frame texture with addCompletedHandler(_:) function.

// Hold camera
var camera: BBMetalCamera!

func setup() {
    // Set up camera to capture image
    camera = BBMetalCamera(sessionPreset: .hd1920x1080)

    // Set up metal view to display image
    let metalView = BBMetalView(frame: frame)
    view.addSubview(metalView)

    // Set up filter to process image
    let filter = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3)
    
    // Add completed handler to get filtered image
    filter.addCompletedHandler { [weak self] info in
        // Check whether is camera photo
        guard info.isCameraPhoto else { return }
        switch info.result {
        case let .success(texture):
            // Convert filtered texture to image
            let image = texture.bb_image
            DispatchQueue.main.async {
                guard let self = self else { return }
                // Display filtered image
            }
        case let .failure(error):
            // Handle error
        }
    }
    
    // Set up filter chain
    camera.add(consumer: filter)
        .add(consumer: metalView)

    // Start capturing
    camera.start()
}

func takePhoto() {
    camera.capturePhoto { [weak self] info in
        // No need to check whether is camera photo
        switch info.result {
        case let .success(texture):
            // Convert filtered texture to image
            let image = texture.bb_image
            DispatchQueue.main.async {
                guard let self = self else { return }
                // Display filtered image
            }
        case let .failure(error):
            // Handle error
        }
    }
}

The takePhoto() functions runs slower and provides original frame texture.

// Hold camera
var camera: BBMetalCamera!

func setup() {
    // Set up camera to capture image
    // Set `canTakePhoto` to true and set `photoDelegate` to nonnull
    camera = BBMetalCamera(sessionPreset: .hd1920x1080)
    camera.canTakePhoto = true
    camera.photoDelegate = self

    // Set up metal view to display image
    let metalView = BBMetalView(frame: frame)
    view.addSubview(metalView)

    // Set up filter chain
    camera.add(consumer: metalView)

    // Start capturing
    camera.start()
}

func takePhoto() {
    camera.takePhoto()
}

// BBMetalCameraPhotoDelegate
func camera(_ camera: BBMetalCamera, didOutput texture: MTLTexture) {
    // Do something to the photo texture
    // Note: the `texture` is the original photo which is not filtered even though there are filters in the filter chain
}

Process Video File

// Hold video source and writer
var videoSource: BBMetalVideoSource!
var videoWriter: BBMetalVideoWriter!

func setup() {
    // Set up video writer
    let filePath = NSTemporaryDirectory() + "test.mp4"
    let outputUrl = URL(fileURLWithPath: filePath)
    videoWriter = BBMetalVideoWriter(url: outputUrl, frameSize: BBMetalIntSize(width: 1080, height: 1920))

    // Set up video source
    let sourceURL = Bundle.main.url(forResource: "test_video_2", withExtension: "mov")!
    videoSource = BBMetalVideoSource(url: sourceURL)

    // Set video source audio consumer to write audio data
    videoSource.audioConsumer = videoWriter

    // Set up 3 filters to process image
    let contrastFilter = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3)
    let lookupFilter = BBMetalLookupFilter(lookupTable: UIImage(named: "test_lookup")!.bb_metalTexture!)
    let sharpenFilter = BBMetalSharpenFilter(sharpeness: 1)

    // Set up filter chain
    videoSource.add(consumer: contrastFilter)
        .add(consumer: lookupFilter)
        .add(consumer: sharpenFilter)
        .add(consumer: videoWriter)

    // Start receiving Metal texture and writing video file
    videoWriter.start()

    // Start reading and processing video frame and auido data
    videoSource.start { [weak self] (_) in
        // All video data is processed
        guard let self = self else { return }

        // Finish writing video file
        self.videoWriter.finish {
            // Do something after writing the video file
        }
    }
}

Process Image Synchronously

// Set up image source
let imageSource = BBMetalStaticImageSource(image: image)

// Set up 3 filters to process image
let contrastFilter = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3)
let lookupFilter = BBMetalLookupFilter(lookupTable: UIImage(named: "test_lookup")!.bb_metalTexture!)
let sharpenFilter = BBMetalSharpenFilter(sharpeness: 1)

// Set up filter chain
// Make last filter run synchronously
imageSource.add(consumer: contrastFilter)
    .add(consumer: lookupFilter)
    .add(consumer: sharpenFilter)
    .runSynchronously = true

// Start processing
imageSource.transmitTexture()

// Get filtered image
let filteredImage = sharpenFilter.outputTexture?.bb_image

Process Image Asynchronously

// Hold image source
var imageSource: BBMetalStaticImageSource!

func process() {
    // Set up image source
    imageSource = BBMetalStaticImageSource(image: image)
    
    // Set up 3 filters to process image
    let contrastFilter = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3)
    let lookupFilter = BBMetalLookupFilter(lookupTable: UIImage(named: "test_lookup")!.bb_metalTexture!)
    let sharpenFilter = BBMetalSharpenFilter(sharpeness: 1)
    
    // Set up filter chain
    // Add complete handler to last filter
    weak var wLastFilter = sharpenFilter
    imageSource.add(consumer: contrastFilter)
        .add(consumer: lookupFilter)
        .add(consumer: sharpenFilter)
        .addCompletedHandler { [weak self] _ in
            if let filteredImage = wLastFilter?.outputTexture?.bb_image {
                DispatchQueue.main.async {
                    guard let self = self else { return }
                    // Display filtered image
                }
            }
    }
    
    // Start processing
    imageSource.transmitTexture()
}

Record a view animation

Use BBMetalUISource to capture UIView snapshot and transmit texture.

// Hold UI source and video writer
var uiSource: BBMetalUISource!
var videoWriter: BBMetalVideoWriter!

func setup() {
    // Set up UI source with a view
    uiSource = BBMetalUISource(view: animationView)
    
    // Set up filter
    let filter = BBMetalContrastFilter(contrast: 3)
    
    // Set up video writer
    let filePath = NSTemporaryDirectory() + "test.mp4"
    let outputUrl = URL(fileURLWithPath: filePath)
    let frameSize = uiSource.renderPixelSize!
    videoWriter = BBMetalVideoWriter(url: outputUrl, frameSize: BBMetalIntSize(width: Int(frameSize.width), height: Int(frameSize.height)))
    
    // Set up filter chain
    uiSource.add(consumer: filter)
        .add(consumer: videoWriter)
    
    // Start recording
    videoWriter.start()
}

@objc func refreshDisplayLink(_ link: CADisplayLink) {
    // Update UI
    // ...
    
    // Transmit texture and video frame sample time
    // Repeat this step for each video frame
    // If `CADisplayLink` is used for the view animation, repeat this step in the target selector
    uiSource.transmitTexture(with: sampleTime)
}

func finishRecording() {
    videoWriter.finish {
        // Do something after recording the video file
    }
}
