[LED] Cubes (ps3.0)
« on: December 19, 2008 »
Here's my entry to the challenge.
Put together in a hurry and many things are left to do; as usual.
I took a different approach and tried to visualice the led itself (ended up being some kind of glass-cube, though).
To conform with the rules, i used a 2x2 matrix ;D
Hope you like it.

Requires shader model 3.0; a video can be found here or watch a stream on vimeo.

Uses OpenGL, MiniFmod, Jasper and music from Dune/Orange.

Did not had the chance to run the exe file yet - but the
video simply rocks. I wasnt that impressed since a long
long time. It looks soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
cool. If possible - a longer video version would be cool!

Very, very good work hellfire.

If I was wearing a hat I'd be taking it off to you there Hellfire.

It's stunning.

I especially love the way that the floor has a kind of scratched texture and picks up the light.

Fabulous.

Many thanks for the kind feedback everyone!

I was a bit in a hurry when I posted the entry yesterday and forgot to mentioned that I used this texture for the ground.
The three lightmaps are generated with my own little photon-tracer; mainly because I was unable to tell mental-ray what I wanted it to do.
You can btw view the textures with IrfanView (plugins required).
The shader is included as plain text (fraction.psh), so most of the relevant source is included.
If anyone wants to play around with it, you can modify the amount of refraction by changing the variable "index".
The cube's colours are defined in shaders/colours.ini.
One major shortcut of the shader is that it traces a cube (so it ignores the edges of the chamfer cube) which isn't very obvious if you don't know it.
It's actually pretty easy to compensate this but I just ran out of time; I'll probably give it a try at some later point.
Using multiple passes it's also doable with shader2-hardware, I just don't have hardware to test it (the mainboard of my secondary pc died lately so I can't use any of my agp-cards).

Required Extensions not available.
This means your card doesn't support vbo, fbo and/or glsl. Unfortunately it's impossible to compensate any of these - you can download the video, though.
I'm aware of the fact that my home gfx-card has quite some horse power, so I made it work properly (~100fps in the default window size) at my work pc which has a rather low-end board (a geforce 8600 which is sold for 49,95 Euros at the moment).
I would love to make it more compatible but at the moment I simply can't.

Runs at 1FPS on my computer :S
Impressive. What card is that?

If possible - a longer video version would be cool!
Well, all the visuals are controlled by the xm-file's pattern-data. To make it longer I need to make changes to the tune - Lassi will very probably kill me for that ;)
But I gladly invite any musician here to create a longer tune for it.

Wow, runs really smooth here at 400 fps ;)

I like the animation to the music. Reminds me a little bit of farbrausch  ::)

Runs smoothly 50-60fps here! Amd card+Vista. Reeeeeally nice transparencies there!

If i must say something bad i'd say the chamfer cube corners. I like better
the smooth edges generally (can be matter of taste though)

Other than that one stunning show put together!

I wish I could only begin to approach that level of mathematics! Exceptional work from one of the best coders on this board.  :cheers:

I that ray-tracing is something that still seems magical to the human mind visually, so I doubt anyone can see errors with the chamfered faces. Hmmm I mean that most people cannot be given an object and be able to predict how it will reflect just by looking, as long as you have some refraction in there you are fine visually, the chamfers become trivial visually because most people's minds cannot form what would be the proper image.

Really good.
Run at ~16FPs on my laptop ( geforce 7300  Go )

Hope that one day I will be able to do the same ;) ( Which version of fmod did you use ? )

I used miniFMOD 1.70 (here) with some minor modifications to access the currently playing note & instrument-number.
