The world around us is filled with subtle lighting effects, but until recently it was not possible to duplicate these real-world effects in computer games because of the limits of consumer graphics hardware. Advanced Lighting and Materials with Shaders explains the principles of lighting theory and discusses how to create realistic lighting that takes full advantage of the capabilities of modern hardware. Topics include the physics of light, raytracing and related techniques, objects and materials, lighting and reflectance models, implementing lights in shaders, spherical harmonic lighting, spherical harmonics in DirectX, and real-time radiosity.Upon reading this text, you will understand the underlying physics of light and energy; learn about the visual features of different materials and how they can be modeled for real-time graphics; find out about the different lighting models; discover how real-time techniques compare to ray tracing; learn to use the provided shader implementations to implement lights and realistic materials in real time.Accompanying CD-ROM includes all the code in the book with resources (models, textures, probes, etc.) needed to run the programs, along with the SDKs and libraries needed to build the programs and luminance Radiosity Studio, an advanced radiosity program.

The computer entertainment industry drives many of the advances in computing technology, and the second volume of "3D Games" shows how to use advanced techniques in games technology and how these techniques can also be applied in other areas. The book concentrates on three main areas: generic processes - the build process, real-time processes and software design real-time rendering processes character animation The treatment of these topics is built around a specific games system, Fly3D SDK 2.0 (included on the accompanying CD-ROM). By rooting as many as possible of the techniques described within the book in a practical games system, the book is able to balance theory and practice. As well as proving invaluable for professionals in the games industry, the book can be used for courses in games programming and development, animation, advanced graphics, and multimedia. The potential of games to embrace other applications within computing is strong, with the advent of techniques for high scene complexity at low processing costs. The Fly3D engine is not only a vehicle for game creation, but has already been used to develop 3D Internet applications, architectural walkthroughs for CAAD and generic 3D visualisation. Workers in these areas will find the techniques described and accompanying software extremely useful. Alan Watt, based at the University of Sheffield, is the author of many successful books including "3D Computer Graphics," "Advanced Animation and Rendering Techniques," "The Computer Image" and "3D Games Volume 1," Fabio Policarpo is a software developer and founder of the company ParaleloComputac(c)o based in Rio de Janeiro. He co-authored "The Computer Image" and "3D Games Volume I" and currently works on new applications for real-time rendering and gaming technologies. CD includes: Full Fly3D SDK including source code for engine, front-ends, plug-ins and utilities; Demo levels; Engine Guide and Reference Manual and tutorials. http: //www.fly3d.com.br for Fly3D SDK documentation, updates, new demos, FAQs and message board. The included software runs on any Microsoft Windows computer system and requires a 3D video card with full OpenGL support. For making changes to the source code, Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 is required. For scene geometry creation, 3DStudio Max 3.x and 4.x plug-ins are included.
