Metaprogramming Gpus With SH


Metaprogramming Gpus With SH Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Shading, as part of the creation of realistic computer-generated images, is currently bringing major advances to computer graphics, with important practical applications in computer game design and animation. Shaders are a more sophisticated way of making 3D objects look more realistic. While most shaders are created using proprietary shading languages, Sh, a new open-source system, simplifies the shader programming process by making it part of the C++ language. This book introduces Sh and describes how to program a GPU using C++ to implement both basic and advanced shading techniques. Readers of this book will be able to start writing advanced, modular shaders using Sh within a day

Book News Annotation:

In a tutorial and guide to the technology behind Sh, McCool and Du Toit (computer science, U. of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) introduce Sh as a new open-source language for simplifying shader programming and a C++ toolkit for (meta-)programming graphics processing units and CPUs. (Meta-programming refers to the ability of one program to build another.) Explaining Sh to those familiar with high-level shading languages, they cover Sh conventions, basic and advanced techniques, engineering, and future directions. The volume includes many b&w and color examples of Sh-generated images, and 152 references.
