The challenge

Sign in to follow this

So my housemate has set me a challenge with regards to the section of the book I'm writing. Whilst I think success is an outsider bet I see no harm in taking him up on the challenge:

Quote:
  • Prototypical

  • Quasi-experimental

  • Trance

  • Bubonic

  • Cosmos

  • Bifurcation

  • Squirerel

  • Somatised

  • Calorific

  • Effervescent


Given that it's a book on graphics I'm having to use a fair bit of descriptive language, thus it makes the challenge a little easier. Still, I don't understand the full definition of some of the above words - how I'll get those into a serious and professional text on real-time lighting algorithms I don't know [lol]

Anyone care to post a comment with a sentence describing real-time lighting and using one or more of the above words?

Anyway, all good journals have pictures:


I got Parallax Mapping with Offset Limiting working [smile]


For added interest, the offset computed for the aforementioned effect can be visualised as such:


Darker areas require little/no offset, lighter areas require more offset.


In the same way that it can be useful to understanding other terms (e.g. Fresnel's) outputting intermediaries is an important part of the understanding.

I'm almost finished with the "Techniques for Per-Pixel Lighting" chapter - just need to implement both forms of relief mapping. I have every intention of posting a short animation/video for you guys this week [wink]

So, uh, yeah, I don't think I've heard of any of these words. Maybe Squirerel, but google seems to insist you mean Squirrel :).

Pictar: Awsome as always. What kind of FPS does something that complex get?

As the ancient monks wisely said:

When one is using the reference rasterizer one should not ask for Frames Per Second, one would be better asking for Seconds Per Frame.

"While this algorithm can provide an effervescent bifurcation effect, its quasi-experimental nature can lead to a somatised trace, similar to the prototypical squirrel caught in headlights, leading to a societial disaster worse than the bubonic plague or the calorific death of the cosmos."

[lol] Good effort!

That parallax mapping looks pretty bubonic to me.
