I've got a bit behind this month, so two issues of Full Circle Magazine have come out since my last post:

Full Circle Magazine #115, with part 55 of my series. Lighting filters - the Specular and Diffuse Lighting primitives.

Full Circle Magazine #116, with part 56 of my series. The last filter primitive: Component Transfer (only available in the UI for Inkscape 0.91 or later).

Nice!

Does it mean the next part will be about some more complex examples?

I'm afraid not. My filter skills are nowhere near good enough to produce complex examples other than by semi-random experimentation. The next part will be the last one on filters, filling in a couple of gaps in the coverage so far, before I move onto the next topic.

I see.

On the component transfer primitive it maybe worth mentioning that in 0.91 there was a bug on the transparent parts being transparent black (?) and that the component transfer can bring to unexpected results. Example case -add some blurring to the object, and after component transfer the alpha values to a higher slope.
(This had messed up some of my filters thumbnail at openclipart.)

Also that the component transfer itself is rendered rather inaccurately with current cairo.
