Description Eric Seidel (no email) 2005-12-09 00:19:57 PST
WebKit+SVG does not support any source images besides "sourceGraphic"

We need to add support for:
SourceAlpha | BackgroundImage | BackgroundAlpha | FillPaint | StrokePaint | <filter-primitive-reference>
Comment 1 Eric Seidel (no email) 2005-12-09 00:23:53 PST
Sorry, we already (clearly!) support <filter-primitive-reference>, just not the rest.  None of these should 
be hard to do (with the possible exception of BackgroundImage/BackgroundAlpha.

FillPaint and StrokePaint should probably be implemented as CIImages with ImageProviders, so they can 
lazily create the bits as needed.

SourceAlpha is just SourceGraphic w/ an alpha-only filter applied.

All of these should be lazily generated on demand.

This is one of our two most basic SVG filter support bugs.  Shipping SVG with filter support would require solving this bug.  Adding SVGHitList keyword and bumping to p2.  I've included instructions above on how we might implement these.

Oh, those above numbers were using 5 runs each, cached content.

We really need some test cases for these various modes.

Just adding a reference test, in case it is useful:

Notice that for SVG 2 the "enable-background" is deprecated and the blending is governed by the isolation property:

Also, notice that, if I'm understanding correctly how the isolation property works, when using a SVG filter we shouldn't worry about what it is behind the SVG document since the filter makes a mandatory isolated group:
