To make this effect work we have applied an interesting texture advection shader technique used by Valve for water flow in Left for Dead 2. A presentation of the technique and its…

We have just released our first IPad application – RenderDuck. The app is based on intern tests of shader capabilities and UI on the IPad, but now we were at it we made the tests into a small free app.

There are simply too many great things to choose from at Siggraph 2010 and every day is a struggle to narrow it down to only one track at a time.

Then there are interesting paper presentations in Boundaries, Edges and Gradients from 9:00-10:30 as well as the Mesh Colors paper in the Textures session and…

By rotating the globe you can shift your focus between different cities and name of the country and capital is displayed along with the flag of the country. A map mode is also available letting you explore each country in more detail…
