24 Modifiers Component Modifier  r.{a} {rgb}  1-r  -r  r_bias  r_bx2 Description Source/Destination mask Invert Negate , *2

25 Modifiers Instruction Modifier  _x2  _x4  _d2  _sat Description multiply result by 2 multiply result by 4 divide result by 2 cramp result

26 Sample Pixel Shader ps.1.1 tex t1 mov r0, t1 ; use texture color mov r0.a, v0 ; get diffuse lighting from ; vertex interpolation

27 D3DX Mesh Optimizing adjacency required sort by attribute compact progressive meshes

28 D3DX Progressive Meshes different levels of detail (LOD) half edge collapse cloning by sharing of vertex buffers streamable save method OptimizeBaseLOD TrimByVertices/TrimByFaces

29 D3DX Skinned Meshes vertex data, bone data with vertex indices support for.X files export filters for Maya, 3D Studio Max available up to 4 indices per vertex up to 12 indices per face up to 256 bone palettes ConvertToBlendedMesh() reduces to this constraints ConvertToIndexBlendedMesh() same, but less subsets Uses GeForce ’ s restricted skinning support by rendering a prefix in hardware.

30 Conclusions very flexible tool hardware accelerated low level interface (assembly) vertex shaders theoretically applicable to point-sampled geometry rendering of shadows needs lots of work

31 What ’ s next? subdivision surfaces in hardware (TruForm technology by ATI) displacement maps
