Stereographic to CubeMap Conversion...

12 June 2013 - 07:29 PM


I'm coding a simple webGL engine, and would like to import stereographic panoramas (taken from an iPad) into the engine as cubemaps.


Is there any free utility i can download that would accomplish this?


Thank you in advance!

C++ operator overload ->

26 April 2013 - 12:56 PM

Hi all,


I'm back to coding in C++, after a somewhat long stint coding PHP.


I'm rewriting some code, and the way I'd like to deal with it, would be to overload the -> operator, so that I can "call" arbitrary method names, that are assigned at run time by various plugins and libraries that dynamically link to the process.


From what I know, this isn't possible, because the -> operator has to return the function to handle the call, and it does not give us the name of the method...


In pseudo-code:


myClass X;

x.addMethod( "nameHere" );

x.addMethod( "setAge" );


x->setAge( 25 );


- - -

The code, again in pseudo-code:


int operator ->( char* methodName ) 


if( methodName in listOfRegisteredMethods )


return methodFunctionPointer();




throw Exception...




- - -

I know that there have been, recently, changes and updates to the language. I've written myself a lambda function this past week for the very first time. I would just like to know if anything has been added that would allow me to accomplish something like the above.


Thanks for any replies!







Starting at the beginning: Sphere Collisions

04 November 2012 - 09:23 AM

I'm looking for some tutorials regarding sphere (2D) collisions, angular momentum, inertia, axis of rotation, etc...

Where can I find something like this, and does it evolve well into 3D?

Thanks for any tips into this subject!

Ray Tracing: Texture Map a Sphere

29 September 2012 - 10:52 PM

I've been looking for this, does someone here know the equations to texture map a sphere, that has a polar north vector, and a rotation arround that vector?

Something along those lines at least, so I can extrapolate.

Thank you!

Inter-relation Graph

28 June 2012 - 06:08 PM

I'm looking for a graph algo that will allow me to render nodes, in a many-to-many relationship.

Basically, each node is atracted, to a certain degree, to other nodes, and I want to render that, into a sheet of paper, as a relationship tree of some sort.

What algos should I be researching for this?

Thanks for any help guys.
