ShaderX2: Introductions and Tutorials with DirectX 9.0 by Wolfgang F. Engel

By Wolfgang F. Engel

ShaderX2 is damaged in to 2 volumes, with this quantity meant as an creation to shader comparable issues to organize the reader for the opposite quantity, or for different shader books. It fills that position rather good, even though it does have a couple of shortcomings that preserve it from being an outstanding book.

The e-book starts with an intensive, well-written advent to HLSL that almost all newbies to the language will locate fairly beneficial. this is often through a convenient advent to Shader version 3.0, and is the reason the alterations which have been made when you consider that 2.0, and the sensible purposes of those alterations and additions.

The subsequent a number of chapters are dedicated to imposing "foundational" innovations utilizing shaders. the 1st covers numerous lights and shading concepts, delivering pattern shader implementations in HLSL and meeting. lots of the shaders are available in a number of types for a number of the shader versions, that's necessary for helping those options on quite a lot of systems, in addition to in realizing the aptitude alterations among each one model.

The subsequent bankruptcy covers 5 diversified fog results utilizing HLSL shaders. Then there are chapters on shadows, one on shadow mapping and the opposite on shadow volumes. The latter weighs in at over eighty pages, supplying in-depth insurance of the idea at the back of the technique.

Next up is an instructional for utilizing the shader improvement atmosphere RenderMonkey. The usefulness of this bankruptcy is marred by way of the truth that the present model of RenderMonkey has passed through a few interface alterations such that the textual content is now out of synch with the device, making it a section tougher to persist with alongside. nonetheless, if you happen to can paintings via this, the bankruptcy may also help you speedy wake up and working with RenderMonkey.

The final bankruptcy of the publication is ready growing shader-friendly versions. This bankruptcy turns out misplaced because it truly is written extra for artists than programmers (who are in actual fact the viewers for the remainder of the book), and the bankruptcy is simply too short and obscure to be of a lot value.

If you are new to shaders and HLSL, you will probably locate this booklet invaluable, although it is a little dear for a small booklet (I think the colour plates give a contribution to this). If the shadow and fog chapters have been moved to the opposite ShaderX2 ebook, and the ultimate bankruptcy were dropped, i feel that they can have lowered the associated fee significantly and made the booklet extra targeted, turning it right into a nice price. because it is, notwithstanding, it really is nonetheless a great e-book that many folks will take advantage of.
