Alpha Flame HD Launcher v2.1 for Mac OS X 10.7

This software is a GUI front-end for Alpha Flame HD for Mac OS X 10.7 it has options that you can set visually and runs the afhd command line application. (Which is included with this app).

What is the AlphaFlame ? Why does the images look nothing like a flame. The program is a mix of two ideas to form complete color manipulation. First the image is alpha blended with variables outside the scope of correct blend, intertwined with a function to blend surrounding pixels. That's just one filter, there are 18 filters. Use the arrow keys to move the direction and increase/decrease the speed.

How to use first find four large images that you will want to morph. Select them in the application. Select the output path (for saving a graphic on the fly) set either 1080p or leave that unchecked for 720p. For recording set the frame rate, and either to output SD (640x360) or HD (1280x720 or 1920x1080). If you are recording when you exit the program (pressing escape) it will ask you where to save the file. It may take a few minutes.

Features You can create your own unique visuals by combining the built in filters with the images you choose. Different keypresses cause different effects, and when used in different orders, produce different results. Create still images, or produce a video.

New in this version
Program can output in 720, 1080, or SD resolution. Select the proper options.

Added fixed versions of Super Stoner 420 and Apps collection that fix the issues with the software when running on MacOS X Yosemite.

UPDATE @ Mon Jun 15 15:35:52 PDT 2015
Spent a long time trying to figure out why OpenCV would not compile on Yosemite. Figured it out and statically linked Acid Cam VR 1.1 with the libraries so you no longer need the MacPorts version of OpenCV installed to /opt/local for it work. It should work as long as you have the Oculus Runtime.

UPDATE @ Sat Jun 6 16:11:40 PDT 2015
Added Acid Cam VR for Oculus Rift DK2 to the site with a version for Windows and MacOS X.

UPDATE @ Sun May 17 14:39:14 PDT 2015
It seems the first version of Acid Cam (1.7.7) is incompatible with MacOS X Yosemite for some reason. So if you using Yosemite just pick up version 2 of the program.

UPDATE @ Tue May 12 14:48:53 PDT 2015
Bad news, seems apple deprecated and now dropped support for one of the libraries that SDL 1.2 that I used to compile the majority of the games on this site. So that means I have to recompile and repackage the majority of these programs to get them to work on Yosemite. So the last version supported was 10.9.

UPDATE @ Fri May 8 10:30:56 PDT 2015
Added our first program for the Oculus 2. It requires that you at least have have the Oculus 2 Runtime.
