When OpenCL™ applications are compiled with MinGW-w64, the application exits when an OpenCL™ runtime routine is called.

This is a known issue with the MinGW-w64 compiler.

Whereas the MinGW (32-bit) compiler does not require a libopencl.a file, MinGW-w64 does require such a file. When a libopencl.a file is not available and specified during the link stage, no link errors are reported. However, execution of the resulting binary executable terminates whenever an OpenCL™ runtime routine is called.

The recommended work around until this is resolved in the MinGW-w64 is to generate a libopencl.a file from the OpenCL.dll provided with the ATI Stream SDK v2 installation.

You will need to make sure the following tools are installed on your system:

    * gendef (a MinGW-w64 utility)
    * dlltool (a MinGW-w64 utility)

Run the following commands to generate libopencl.a from OpenCL.dll:

   1. gendef OpenCL.dll (this generates an OpenCL.def file)
   2. dlltool -l libopencl.a -d OpenCL.def -k -A
   3. Copy the resulting libopencl.a file into $ATISTREAMSDKROOT\lib.

When compiling an OpenCL™  application with MinGW-w64, make sure to specify the libopencl.a file as part of the input into the link stage of the compilation.

Nulstein is a to-scale model of a game engine that aims to do most of what it is a game engine does using the a minimal amount of code. This came up while interacting with the demoscene and seeing that toying with a small code base is a good way to try things out quickly, make experiments, and start all over again every time you want. The project’s motto is “if it is rocket science, you need Einstein. If not, nulstein should do.” Climb on the shoulders of this giant and try to do something as simple as possible (but not simpler).

During development of Unity 3.0, I was not-so-pleasantly surprised to see that our cross-compiled shaders run slow on iPhone 3Gs. And by “slow”, I mean SLOW; at the speeds of “stop the presses, we can not ship brand new OpenGL ES 2.0 support with THAT performance”.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / DX11 Perspective Matrix Jittering Temporal AA
« on: September 28, 2010, 09:51:01 PM »
Quote
Temporal anti-aliasing algorithms are algorithms where you use samples from previously rendered frames in order to perform a temporal form of supersampling. There are different ways to implement temporal AA...
The perspective matrix jittering temporal AA is easy to implement, cheap and provides anti-aliasing qualities similiar to SSAA 2x. However, the current implementation suffers from distracting screen blurring once the camera starts moving. I haven’t really read up on temporal reprojection yet, but it might be interesting to implement AA using it and see how the results compare to this implementation.
