24: Real-Time Shading
Monday, Full Day, 8:30 am - 5 pm
Petree Hall D
titled Approaches for Procedural Shading on Graphics Hardware,
this course explains the techniques behind shading on
current and future graphics hardware, from full procedural
shading on advanced specialized hardware to limited, yet
still surprisingly flexible, shading on unextended OpenGL,
to the latest in PC graphics accelerators. Attendees see
several systems in action and learn the basic techniques
in a series of technology overviews.
Working knowledge of a modern real-time graphics API like
OpenGL. Familiarity with the concepts of procedural shading.
How interactive procedural shading can be implemented
using advanced programmable hardware, with more modest
extensions to graphics hardware, or even on existing graphics
hardware. SIMD rendering hardware, parameterized and procedural
solid texturing, hardware extensions, multi-pass rendering,
and new graphics APIs.
