To involve our audience a bit further we launch a Christmas competition. The rules are as follows:
Update: We have decided to extend the competition until December 27th.
- Use our raytracer to create the coolest image with a Christmas theme. You can supply your own scene in basic Wavefront OBJ format. Our demo video shows how to use the features of the raytracer.
- Send a screenshot of your creation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We reserve the right to publish your screenshots on our blog.
- The competition ends on December 27th 2012.
The winner will be awarded a genuine Skylark-124 gaming console.
You should ensure that you have a web browser that supports WebGL with the OES_texture_float extension.
If you use Windows you will need a recent version Firefox (v17 has been tested) or Chrome (v23 has been tested) due to some optimizations in the shader compiler in the Angle layer. Alternatively you have to enable native opengl in your browser (in Firefox open about:config and set webgl.prefer-native-gl=true, in Chrome use the command line argument –use-gl=desktop).
