There are a bunch of path finding implementations online. But, to be honest, I wasn't much satisfied with most of them, for one of these reasons:
Dynamic memory allocation in the middle of the algorithm Algorithm that does too much (more than what is needed) Too many files for just a single task So I made this two-files (`uastar.c` and `uastar.h`) library: https://github.com/ferreiradaselva/uastar
No memory dynamic allocation. Straight to the point (the README.md explains how to use).
It's nothing biggie, but certainly useful.
Path finder at work:
I'm leaving this in announcements, because I probably won't add more features (it's pretty much done).
INT is a 3D Sci-fi RPG with a strong emphasis on story, role playing, and innovative RPG features such as randomized companions. The focus is on the journey through a war-torn world with fast-paced combat against hordes of enemies. The player must accomplish quests like a traditional RPG, complete objectives, and meet lively crew members who will aid in the player's survival. Throughout the game you can side and complete missions through criminal cartels, and the two major combatants, the UCE and ACP, of the Interstellar Civil War.
Please note that all of our current positions are remote work. You will not be required to travel.

We have made great strides in the year 2017! INT has received a comprehensive face-lift compared to the start of the year. We look forward to a productive, fruitful year 2018!
This is the perfect opportunity to get into the game development industry. Being an Indie team we do not have the creative restrictions often imposed by publishers or other third parties. We are extremely conscientious of our work and continuously uphold a high level of quality throughout our project.
We are unable to offer wages or per-item payments at this time. However revenue-sharing from crowd-funding is offered to team members who contribute 15-20 hours per week to company projects, as well as maintain constant communication and adhere to deadlines. Currently the crowd-funding campaign is scheduled for the year 2018. Your understanding is dearly appreciated.
Thank you for your time! We look forward to hearing from you!

For those doing promotional videos for their games we have released a video plugin that allows you to add glow, aka blooming, as a post effect in your video pipeline. The plugin is an OpenFX plugin that works in video editing software such as Nuke, Catalyst Edit, Natron or any other OpenFX compatible host software.
The blooming filter allows you to set the threshold intensities that you want affected by the glow. You can also color tint the glow or make it anisotropic for stretched glow effects typically used for really bright intensity light streaks.
Sample of an image before the blooming effect is applied:
Image after blooming has been applied:
You can find out more about this plugin on the Genifect OpenFX plugin suite page.
