Weird, I just tested and it's the opposite: a blank line is inserted at the start. I will check that strange behavior.

And yes, opening a shader code requires more clicks than for a script code. Don't ask me why... ;)

Great! Does this fix the scrambled order of the position components?

Yes, the issue should be fixed.

I found another bug in gh_vertex_pool.vertex_set_position() and gh_vertex_pool.vertex_set_color().

Now the grid deformer demo works fine in Python.


In your code, you mix vb_set_vertex_position and vertex_get_position:

gh_vertex_pool.vertex_set_position() writes to CPU memory and gh_vertex_pool.vertex_get_position() reads from CPU memory.

gh_vertex_pool.vb_set_vertex_position() writes directly to GPU memory and gh_vertex_pool.vb_get_vertex_position() reads from GPU memory.

That's why the position you have written with gh_vertex_pool.vb_set_vertex_position() can't be read with gh_vertex_pool.vertex_get_position().

I will release a new geexlab asap (today I hope).

If you need to set the position of particles once (in an INIT script for example), use that code:

Code: [Select]
num_particles = 100
vp = gh_vertex_pool.create(num_particles)

for i=0, num_particles-1 do
    local x = ...
    local y = ...
    local z = ...
    gh_vertex_pool.vertex_set_position(vp, i, x, y, z, 1)
end


You can also use gh_vertex_pool.vertex_set_position() in a FRAME script.

If you need to update the position more frequently (FRAME script), you can update the position of particles in GPU memory with GPU mapping:

Code: [Select]

num_particles = 100
vp = gh_vertex_pool.create(num_particles)

gh_vertex_pool.vb_map(vp)

for i=0, num_particles-1 do
    local x = ...
    local y = ...
    local z = ...
    gh_vertex_pool.vb_set_vertex_position(vp, i, x, y, z, 1)
end

gh_vertex_pool.vb_unmap(vp)

Both methods work in an INIT or FRAME script.

The streets of downtown Austin, just cleared of music festival attendees and auto racing fans, are now filled with enthusiasts of a different sort. This year the city is host to SC15, the largest event for supercomputing systems and software, and AMD is on site to meet with customers and technology partners.  The hardware is here, of course, including industry-leading AMD FirePro™ graphics and the upcoming AMD Opteron™ A1100 64-bit ARM® processor. However, the big story for AMD at the show this year is the Boltzmann Initiative, delivering new software tools to take advantage of the processing power of our products, including those on the future roadmap, like the new “Zen” x86 CPU core coming next year.  Ludwig Boltzmann was a theoretical physicist and mathematician who developed critical formulas for predicting the behavior of different forms of matter. Today, these calculations are central to work done by the scientific and engineering communities we are targeting with these tools.
 

Finally, for applications already developed in CUDA, they can now be ported into C++. This is achieved using the new Heterogeneous-computing Interface for Programmers (HIP) tool that ports CUDA runtime APIs into C++ code. AMD testing shows that in many cases 90 percent or more of CUDA code can be automatically converted into C++ by HIP. The remainder will require manual programming, but this should take a matter of days, not months as before. Once ported, the application could run on a variety of underlying hardware, and enhancements could be made directly through C++. The overall effect would enable greater platform flexibility and reduced development time and cost.

Thanks for your feedback, indeed, the recent changes I did in the Lua API are not available in the Python plugin.

gh_vertex_pool.render() has 3 paramerters, the last being the number of particles to render.
The current python function has only two and does not work because the number of particles is set to 0.

And yes, gh_vertex_pool.vb_map() and vb_unmap() are the correct names.

I updated the Python plugin, it will be released as soon as possible. If you are on Windows, I can send you a test version quickly.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Ray-Tracing Hardware

As we can see, ray-tracing and rasterization are not mutually exclusive. Simplified variants of ray-tracing are already used for complex lighting effects in games – implemented completely in shaders using simplified, shader-friendly scene representations. And these effects are where ray-tracing hardware could come in handy to replace or extend these shader-based ray-casting hacks with real ray-tracing. This can still use a simplified scene or even the real, high complex scene.

Cleary inspired by glslsandbox.com this one only lets you edit a vertex shader. The vertex shaders main input is just a vertexId that counts vertices.
