Vertex shader tutorials?

Recommended Posts

Do they exist online?, because I can''t find any. I downloaded cg and rendermonkey; they provide no explanations, just give a bunch of examples. Everything I''ve come across is either simply applying color, or something advanced.

Buy book(s). For CG you can buy "The CG Tutorial", good book for those who are learning shder programming and simple basic shaders.

Why don't you look at the articles section on this site? There's an excellent shader programming series by Wolfgang Engel.


That is an old tutorial and some of the things do not apply anymore like this:

DWORD SDec[] =
{
D3DVSD_STREAM(0),
D3DVSD_REG(0, D3DVSDT_FLOAT3 ), // input register #1
D3DVSD_REG(3, D3DVSDT_FLOAT3 ), // normal in input register #4
D3DVSD_END()
}
, and device->SetVertexShaderConstant().

And I rather not spend $40 on a book that I have no idea how much use I'll get out of, and I only have a geForce3 so I couldn't run half of the examples from the book anyway.

Google for "vertex program tutorials". Thanks for starting this thread... I wasn''t getting anything either with "vertex shader tutorials". However, "vertex program tutorials" yields good results.
