Represents a basic image-processing construct in Direct2D.
The ID2D1Effect interface has these methods.
|ID2D1Effect::GetInput||Gets the given input image by index.|
|ID2D1Effect::GetInputCount||Gets the number of inputs to the effect.|
|ID2D1Effect::GetOutput||Gets the output image from the effect.|
|ID2D1Effect::SetInput||Sets the given input image by index.|
|ID2D1Effect::SetInputCount||Allows the application to change the number of inputs to an effect.|
|ID2D1Effect::SetInputEffect||Sets the given input effect by index.|
An effect takes zero or more input images, and has an output image. The images that are input into and output from an effect are lazily evaluated. This definition is sufficient to allow an arbitrary graph of effects to be created from the application by feeding output images into the input image of the next effect in the chain.
