Realtime compositing system

The goal of 'waterworks' is to provide a high-level realtime compositing system. Unlike realtime rendering systems (open-gl, directx), so far there has been little development toward a free equivalent in the realm of compositing (where 2d raster images are manipulated to create various effects.) In it's current implementation 'waterworks' is a rough prototype of a working system - and must be redesigned before serious development can occur. in the meantime, the current version is fun to play with - and gives insight into future applications (user interfaces, games, webcams, etc.)
