I ran across this at scene.org Anyone know how they might have done it? Having something like this in a game would be scary as hell if you did it right. The textures are in the data directory. I just have to figure out how they''re blending and stuff. --Ben

Surely you can just blend different buffers together at different times to get that effect?

I didn''t download the thing, but I know how you can make that screen shot. 3 tools, blur, douge, and burn,... Wash, rinse, repeat,... Put a bunch of lines of the color you want, and mold them to the effect.

Do something similar realtime in a game,...



Hey slip,... is doing that the sort of thing you got your nick for?

Ok, I can try blur (I definitely agree there), but dodge and burn I''m not sure. I don''t know of any way to do burn or dodge like effects using Direct3D alone, which leads me to think I''d need to write a custom shader or something. If the effect is possible w/o requiring a card with shader support I''d rather do it that way. Anyone have a crappy video card they can try the demo on so we''ll know if they used a shader or not?

the demo is from June 2002, so i think we can rule out 'pixel shaders', in fact i've just looked at the infofile with it and it states it should run on a Voodoo3

oh yeah, and that is a cool demo (although the apprent lack of v-sync was slghtly annoying), its been added to my collection of demos now :D
