EffectFactory

public class EffectFactory
extends Object

java.lang.Object
   ↳ android.media.effect.EffectFactory


The EffectFactory class defines the list of available Effects, and provides functionality to inspect and instantiate them. Some effects may not be available on all platforms, so before creating a certain effect, the application should confirm that the effect is supported on this platform by calling isEffectSupported(String).

createEffect

Added in API level 14
Effect createEffect (String effectName)

Instantiate a new effect with the given effect name.

The effect's parameters will be set to their default values.

Note that the EGL context associated with the current EffectContext need not be made current when creating an effect. This allows the host application to instantiate effects before any EGL context has become current.

Parameters
effectName String: The name of the effect to create.
Returns
Effect A new Effect instance.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the effect with the specified name is not supported or not known.

isEffectSupported

Added in API level 14
boolean isEffectSupported (String effectName)

Check if an effect is supported on this platform.

Some effects may only be available on certain platforms. Use this method before instantiating an effect to make sure it is supported.

Parameters
effectName String: The name of the effect.
Returns
boolean true, if the effect is supported on this platform.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if the effect name is not known.
