Oculus Rift Confirms "Pause" in OS X, Linux Development, Some Devs are Mad:

Quote
Our development for OS X and Linux has been paused in order to focus on delivering a high quality consumer-level VR experience at launch across hardware, software, and content on Windows. We want to get back to development for OS X and Linux but we don’t have a timeline.

A common practice in computer graphics is to pack and compress vertex attributes. It reduces the memory footprint, time to transfer data across the bus from the CPU to the GPU, and GPU memory bandwidth at the cost of extra instructions in the vertex shader. Another benefit may be that there are more attributes than the maximum number of vertex attributes supported.

An introduction to the latest provisional OpenCL 2.1 specification with a kernel language based on C++:

Synthclipse is a GLSL shader prototyping tool. It makes possible to fast develop all kinds of shaders: Fragment (FS), Vertex (VS), Geometry (GS), Tessellation (TS) and Compute (CS). Shader development can be done using, compatible with Fragmentarium and Shadertoy (but limited to FS and VS), Fragx shaders or by using fully featured JavaScript JSX scripts. The JSX API is consistent with WebGL but in fact exposes complete OpenGL 4+ API.

Synthclipse is based on Eclipse IDE and depends on Eclipse CDT (C/C++ Development Tooling). It pretends that GLSL is just plain C++ code.

SYCL (pronounced ‘sickle’) is a royalty-free, cross-platform abstraction layer that builds on the underlying concepts, portability and efficiency of OpenCL that enables code for heterogeneous processors to be written in a “single-source” style using completely standard C++.   SYCL enables single source development where C++ template functions can contain both host and device code to construct complex algorithms that use OpenCL acceleration, and then re-use them throughout their source code on different types of data.

The ClanLib C++ Game SDK has been updated. Key updates since previous release include a path drawing module using CPU/GLSL to render anti-aliased SVG style primitives (including lines). Now fully supports Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. All source has a very liberal zlib style license

kiUi is a lightweight auto-layout Ui library, abstracted out from any rendering or input code.

Every single element in kiUi auto-layouts ! You have nothing to do. No position to set, no size to determine.

kiUi was conceived so that each element can be styled in a way very similar to CSS, through Style Sheets You can switch between Styles Sheets on the fly.

kiUi comes with a light renderer / input system based on NanoVG and GLFW to quickly bootstrap a prototype application in a few lines of code.

- Intel v4170 + Intel HD Graphics 4600 + Windows 8.1 + GLSL Hacker 0.8.4.0
- demo: host_api/gl-430-arb-compute-shader-particles-ssbo/grid_deformer_v2.xml (Code sample pack )

The demo works fine (245 FPS).

English forum / Intel Graphics Drivers and GPUs
« on: May 07, 2015, 02:39:27 PM »
I start this thread to post screenshots of GLSL Hacker based demos and applications that have issues with Intel graphics drivers.
I also post screenshots of demos that work fine with Intel GPUs!

The last Intel v4170 has some issues (that should be fixed in an upcoming driver version) with MadShaders 0.4.0 (correct screenshots can be found in this page). I tested with an update of  MadShaders (v0.4.1) without change:

- Mobius Balls: the central big sphere is nor rendered



- Bokeh blur: no comment!

English forum / Re: Faulty OBJ Loading
« on: May 07, 2015, 08:27:24 AM »
MERCI for the bug-report!

Indeed the OBJ loader was broken. I fixed it and the new version will be available with the new GLSL Hacker 0.8.4.0.

English forum / Re: Fixes for MadShaders 0.4.0
« on: April 14, 2015, 09:52:57 AM »
Thanks for your contribution!

I will update the Windows version of MadShaders asap with your batch file.

The am_i_dreaming_gl2.xml demo is not listed in the main interface and I even forget it. Anyway, I fixed it.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / PS4 Should Support Vulkan

According to Wardell, Sony’s current API is much low level compared to Mantle and even Vulkan but they should look into adding Vulkan support for the console as it will reduce a lot of developer overhead for cross platform development.

“What I was referencing at the time was Vulkan. We’re part of the Khronos Group and now it depends who you talk to at Sony and this gets in to a debate. Sony has a very low-level API already for the PlayStation 4. The problem I have with it is that if you want to make use for it you’re writing some very specific code just for the PlayStation 4. And in the real world people don’t do that right. I write code generally to be as cross-platform as I can.”
