HDR Rendering

20 November 2014 - 07:17 AM

I'm trying to implement HDR, according to my understanding:


- Render the scene to D3DFMT_A16B16G16R16F texture

- Apply bloom effect

- Apply tone mapping

- Render the final scene (Fullscreen Quad)


The bloom effect is working perfectly.


How do I apply tone mapping?

Soft Particles and Alpha Blending

Hi guys,


The soft particles is only working correctly with non-transparent meshes.


How do I make the soft particles work with alpha blending (transparent meshes)?

I have a weapon mesh, how do I make it rotate GRADUALLY to look at the player (target)?


I want to update pitch, yaw, roll gradually and find out when the rotation is done.

Muzzle Flash Billboard

01 July 2014 - 11:56 PM

When the enemy shoot, the player should see the muzzle flash, which is usually a billboard


However, the player could see his friend firing and he look at the muzzle flash from the side


I want the muzzle flash to look like this if the player is looking at it from the front:

and like this if the player is looking from the sides:

I think it can be done using Pixel Shader, but I'm not sure how.
