Hi, I’d like to know if a python image processing node could be possible ?
The idea is to make Natron extension open to programmers uncomfortable with C, compilation, building process (like me )
I know G’MIC and ShaderToy are good options but the lack of external librarys requires to reinvent the wheel.
use case could be something like this:
It’s also several years that the lack of optical flow and warp tools in Natron are the only things that prevent me to use it in my daily VFX compositing work. All this seems to be present in OpenCv.
And in the future it may be a good doorway for AI tools in Natron without leaving all the heavy work on @devernay and @rodlie shoulders!
(again thanks to them for all the amazing work)
The node would “simply” handle the input images to the code as numpy array, opencv image or similar. And also get the result from an other “result” array.
My understanding is that nuke and natron didn’t consider this when python didn’t have such powerful librarys such as opencv but this may now be very desirable…
Thanks for reading my awaken dreams !
