Insight3D provides a flexible Raster framework and raster processing through RasterFilters. The following raster image formats can be read by the raster class: BMP, ECW, IMG, JP2, NTF, NITF, PNG, SID, TIF, TIFF, JPG, JPEG, PPM, PGM, CLDS, and TGA. A raster can be loaded from a file, HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP source, and can also be loaded from memory, or constructed from a BufferedImage. The RasterFilter base class allows a user to perform many image processing tasks. The RasterStream class allows implementers to stream new data to a Raster over time, allowing for streaming of video (provided with the VideoStream class) and the ability to stream dynamic raster data into textures, including those on COLLADA models.
The RasterStream and ProjectionStream classes allow for implementers to stream new data to a Raster and Projection over time. These subclasses can be used in locations that accept those base types, but in contrast to the base types, their data can change over time.
The VideoStream class can be used by many classes within the library, including COLLADA models. This allows you to stream video to a model's textures. The models are self contained, so you can distribute the models and videos and they can be used in other Insight3D applications.
