The constructor for Classic Effects requires a reference to PaintDotNet.Windows?


Recommended Posts

The IBitmapSource constructors are just there for consistency with the new BitmapEffect and GpuEffect classes.

 

This is an unfortunate side effect of how .NET and C# do things ... if it says you need a reference, then you need one, even if you know you don't use it. *sigh* You shouldn't need a using PaintDotNet.Imaging; though, so none of the new types will be pulled into scope.

I'm not planning to deprecate the use of System.Drawing.Image for the sake of the effect constructors (classic or new). While IBitmapSource is superior in many important ways, particularly locking and multithreading, there isn't currently a good way to go directly from embedded resources to an IBitmapSource (and even if I provide one, it's just not important enough to push on it). So System.Drawing.Image is de facto the way to do things here anyway.

I need this if I'm ever to rewrite my Creative Text Pro plugin to the new system.

 

Not necessarily. The new plugin base classes still accept an Image, they don't require an IBitmapSource.
