Rasterizer is finished
The rasterizer is finally finished as far as I am going to take it. It is surprising to me how delicate the algorithms are for rasterizers - you really take for granted what the graphics API is doing for you until you have to do it yourself!

Anyhow, with that finished I am going to move forward a bit and see what my next couple of tasks should be. I would like to develop a few different procedural generation techniques. This would of course be attached to the input of the vertex shader, or even just writing to a memory buffer for use later (similar to render to vertex buffer operations).

I have also been looking into image processing lately. It is really quite an interesting field, with many different algorithms available that are widely documented. I may add a couple more processors to perform image processing operations on a given memory buffer as well. This could lead nicely into post processing capabilities, so it will be interesting to see where this goes!

Congratulations on completing this monumental task of writing a 3D software renderer from the ground up! I've just begun to delve into the realm myself, and am very curious about a number of areas that you've passed. Are you considering writing any articles about the various techniques/algorithms you've employed?
