We just published a codeplex project with source for > 25 Pixel Shader effects and ~35 Transition effects..

  • Effects: BandedSwirl, Bloom, BrightExtract, ColorKeyAlpha, ColorTone, ContrastAdjust, DirectionalBlur, Embossed, Gloom, GrowablePoissonDiskEffect, InvertColor, LightStreak, Magnify, Monochrome, Pinch, Pixelate, Ripple, Sharpen, SmoothMagnify, Swirl, Tone, Toon, and ZoomBlur…

    Here are samples of the effects in action.

    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!
