Re: vertex pixel shader?

Hi MikomDude!

Nice work but if you keep wiggling your motherboard around like that you're gonna shake loose a capacitor or two!

It's a fun thing to play with isn't it?

Re: vertex pixel shader?

Hi trueBlue Thanks for the input! Yeah that looks right. I've actually never used an Image Sequencer in tS though it's pretty obvious what it does. ;) I had a play around with this a bit the other night and found that I could indeed animate the zMult attribute easily enough but it was all rather s l...

Re: vertex pixel shader?

Hey Paul and Clinton!! Nice to touch base guys! Thanks for your efforts here. Yes IIRC it was something Norm was working on and there was supposed to be a way of using an animated texture so the pixel cloud would move over time. I never figured out the animation part of it but did use just a static ...

Re: Displacement and Texture example

The best displacement, bump or normal maps are the ones you create specifically for a texture. There is a whole art/science to this. The quick and easy way is to just use the same texture you use for the colour channels. Displacement and bump maps usually read the relative brightness of a pixel and ...

Re: vertex pixel shader?

Hi Emmanuel Yep I'm still alive - and doing well now although I have been very ill. I'm mostly recovered from that (although my lovely partner keeps making jokes about brain damage!!). Given that I still can't remember the name of the shader I'm thinking of she's probably right! My memory is that it...

vertex pixel shader?

Hi W!ZARD here. It's been a while since I called by here but this IS where the tS experts hang out and I need some assistance. My memory is not what it was unfortunately but I have a distinct recollection about a tS DX9 shader that sort of elevated individual pixels off the surface of a textured obj...

Re: Hi from W!ZARD

Thanks guys - great to see so many familiar names still here! As always ity's a warm welcome here! Here's a quick VRay test render of some Caravanserai Market props I'm making in tS. I've been playing with the various physics abilities of tS with these models - the tents are all made with the Fabric...

Hi from W!ZARD

Greetings all I've not been very active here lately due to health reasons. I've heard from Steinie that there is a 'happy birthday' thread here for me that I had missed. I just wanted to say thanks to all those who send kind thoughts my way earlier this year and to give you all a heads-up on my curr...
