Attached is a tgz file containing a patch for a new evas gradient type named "shaped". This type, unlike the others, does not use a described geometry, but instead uses an image to specify that. The type has as its params a string of the form: "file:key:mode" Each of file, key, and mode must be present. 'file' is the name of some image file. 'key' is the name of some key for loading from eet files -- if no key is desired, then one must write NULL as the key. 'mode' is one of: alpha, grey, or color. The mode will determine how the spectrum is used in conjunction with the image to obtain the result: 'alpha' uses the image's alpha channel as the index to the spectrum. 'grey' uses the image's grey channel, ie. the values a*(r+g+b)/3, as the index. 'color' uses all the image's color channels by using the spectrum as a color-modifier. eg. "/path_to/image.png:NULL:color" The evas_test_main program contains a sample of how to use this grad type... It can be used to obtain scaling/tiling/ rotating/re-coloring of images... jose.
