NVIDIA ShaderPerf 2

NVIDIA ShaderPerf is a command-line shader profiling utility and C API that reports detailed shader performance metrics for a wide range of GPUs.

ShaderPerf wokrs with GLSL vertex and fragment programs, HLSL vertex and pixel shaders and Cg shaders.

ShaderPerf 2.0 includes several new features:
* GeForce 8 series support
* Pixel Shader Differencing
* Vertex Shader Analysis

ShaderPerf outputs the following for any shader that you analyze:
* Cycle count
* Register usage
* Driver-optimized shader instruction list
* Vertex and pixel throughput estimates

Shader Maker

Shader Maker is a simple, cross-platform GLSL editor. It works on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. It provides the basics of a shader editor, such that students can get started with writing their own shaders as quickly as possible. This includes: syntax highlighting in the GLSL editors; geometry shader editor (as well as vertex and fragment shader editors, of course); interactive editing of the uniform variables; light source parameters; pre-defined simple shapes (e.g., torus et al.) and a simple OBJ loader; and a few more.

Shader Maker est un editeur GLSL multi-plateformes (Windows, Linux et MacOS). Il inclue la coloration syntaxique, des éditeurs pour les vertex, geometry et pixel shaders, édition interactives des variables uniformes.
