Vector Unit used Bullet Physics to create Hydro Thunder Hurricane. There's a post mortem available at gamasutra: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/6184/postmortem_vector_units_hydro_.php

Maybe you'll find something helpfull in there or in the Bullet forums.

In Topic: DirectXMath / DirectXCollision BoundingFrustum

I think I've solved the problem myself. The working one is the following:
using namespace DirectX;
BoundingFrustum tmp( XMLoadFloat4x4A(&proj) );
tmp.Transform(frustum, XMMatrixInverse( &det, XMLoadFloat4x4A(&view) ) );
I had to use the INVERSE view matrix for transformation...

I've investigated this some more and found a very simple solution:
double gradient_x = dist[x-1] - dist[x+1];
double gradient_y = dist[y-1] - dist[y+1];

After normalizing the result it looks smooth and nice :-)

Thank you guys for your help.

This sounds really interesting. I will try this tomorrow morning. Thank you very much.

How will this look with more than three points? I think the result will be better in some cases with more sample points, isn't it?

Try a google search for "Polygon Polygon Intersection". I'm sure you will find a lot of information about that topic.

Yes, there's a big difference in the two collision approaches: The BoundingRectangle intersection test is much cheaper because you have to do only some If-Statements. The Polygon intersection routine is much more complicated and needs much more cpu cycles but it is much more exact.
