      I promise it will be fun... [in a geeky kinda way].

    The scoop on the library.  
    Adam recorded a video with David Teitlebaum introducing the library and sharing credit with Troy Jefferson, the intern that packaged the effects...  Thanks Troy!!

    We are hoping others contribute; there is already plenty of other WPF effects out there..

    A few resources to get you going with PixelShaders (for WPF) effects:

    Have fun!  Please share feedback via codeplex.. and if you like the library blog it so others can find it.. imho the transitions are pretty neat!
