The PBK - Pixel Bender Kernel File is a unique program file that is an Adobe based app that is utilize in the creation of custom image filters with programs like Photoshop and After Effects. The PBK - Pixel Bender Kernel File was designed and developed by Pixel Bender Toolkit and it consists of a source code that has been written in the pixel bender kernel language; this language uses C-like syntax. This program is designed for the purpose of creating image processing algorithms that are low level so that they will compile efficiently for the sake of proficient execution on GPU and CPU multiprocessor systems.
Developers are able to write highly optimized image manipulation algorithms because of the Pixel Bender language. These files are capable of being compiled into PBJ files which function as filters which are usable by Adobe Flash Player.
