Shadowmapping (part 1 of many) [Apr. 1st, 2008|04:35 am]
Spectre Gruedorf Challenge Blog


I spent most of the day putting together a demo (!) for some potential clients in my real-life contracting gig. As a result of that, I decided that I really should get the shadow maps working.

A little thrashing around, and the shadow maps are now back in the engine. We now have one point light, one directional light, and the directional light uses a (very ugly, 1024x1024, not well placed) shadow map. I need to go implement variance shadow mapping to soften my edges, position it better, and do some sort of perspective space bias, but it's a start.

The inevitable shot:

I know I have IMVU readers out there. This would be a good one for hack week, guys. It took me all of four hours to do, and you have a week. Get moving!

Great work

I just wanted to say that what you are doing is really cool. I have been following your work for a while through Gruedorf and I am sure fellow Gruedorf people think the same. Keep it up! =)
