Features / Description

The Camera Video Stream Processing tutorial demonstrates basic approach to processing video stream from a camera with help of the Google RenderScript*. Specifically, the tutorial uses "preview" feature of the Android camera interface, which relies on the RenderScript to convert YUV data from the camera to RGB. The code sample also uses RenderScript to accelerate the data post-processing: a popular “Old Movie” video effect is implemented as a RenderScript kernel. Finally, the sample uses the copy-free way of displaying the resulting image on the screen.

Supported Devices: CPU, Intel® Processor Graphics
Supported OS: Android* 4.3 and higher
Complexity Level: Novice
