What to do...There has been some interest expressed regarding software rendering articles. I have thought about writing a few articles regarding my flexline and some of the interesting possibilities, but those are on hold until I find out about a few proposals that I have made (I'm keeping my fingers crossed again...) But I didn't think there would be much interest in the software pipeline - I thought the interest would be about the framework instead.
So my question to the readers of this journal: Are you interested in a software renderer article, or would you rather see a different topic for an article? I have to admit, my software implementation is not very fast - in fact, I would say that it is likely slower than most open source software renderers. The most I could offer is to try to clarify the subject and answer common questions with the article.
On the other hand, I could investigate and write about other rendering topics or methods. I enjoy writing and researching different methods (which is why I wrote the soft renderer in the first place) and adding them to my engine, so I would gladly accept topic suggestions. My current personal interests are starting to turn to image processing, but I am certainly open to suggestions. What do you all want to hear about?
