1 – Overview
Even if they look like humans, they are not humans when you see what they can do with pixels (look at Dolphin or Circuits demos). MadShaders 0.3.0 is available with new stunning pixels shaders (in GLSL) in order you can admire their madness. Be sure to have a powerful GPU and up to date graphics drivers if you want a smooth rendering!
MadShaders packs under a single interface the best pixel shaders from popular websites like Shadertoy or GLSL Sandbox. MadShaders is available for Windows 64-bit, Linux 64-bit and Mac OS X 10.7/10.8/10.9 (more information HERE).
MadShaders 0.3.0 is based on the latest DEV version of GLSL Hacker (v0.6.3.12) and adds 10 new demos (for a total of 56 demos):
– Grid of Cylinders
– Eye of Sauron
– Creepy Mountains
– Fish Swimming
– Chain Reaction
– Misty lake
All source codes are available in the demos/ folder (Lua + GLSL).
