OpenGL® Shading Language, Third Edition, extensively updated for OpenGL 3.1, is the experienced application programmer’s guide to writing shaders. Part reference, part tutorial, this book thoroughly explains the shift from fixed-functionality graphics hardware to the new era of programmable graphics hardware and the additions to the OpenGL API that support this programmability. With OpenGL and shaders written in the OpenGL Shading Language, applications can perform better, achieving stunning graphics effects by using the capabilities of both the visual processing unit and the central processing unit. In this book, you will find a detailed introduction to the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) and the new OpenGL function calls that support it. The text begins by describing the syntax and semantics of this high-level programming language. Once this foundation has been established, the book explores the creation and manipulation of shaders using new OpenGL function calls. OpenGL® Shading Language, Third Edition, includes updated descriptions for the language and all the GLSL entry points added though OpenGL 3.1, as well as updated chapters that discuss transformations, lighting, shadows, and surface characteristics. The third edition also features shaders that have been updated to OpenGL Shading Language Version 1.40 and their underlying algorithms, including Traditional OpenGL fixed functionality Stored textures and procedural textures Image-based lighting Lighting with spherical harmonics Ambient occlusion and shadow mapping Volume shadows using deferred lighting Ward’s BRDF model The color plate section illustrates the power and sophistication of the OpenGL Shading Language. The API Function Reference at the end of the book is an excellent guide to the API entry points that support the OpenGL Shading Language.

EINE TOUR DURCH C++ // - Dieser Leitfaden will Ihnen weder das Programmieren beibringen noch versteht er sich als einzige Quelle, die Sie für die Beherrschung von C++ brauchen – aber diese Tour ist wahrscheinlich die kürzeste oder einfachste Einführung in C++11. - Für C- oder C++-Programmierer, die mit der aktuellen C++-Sprache vertrauter werden wollen - Programmierer, die in einer anderen Sprache versiert sind, erhalten ein genaues Bild vom Wesen und von den Vorzügen des modernen C++ . Mit dem C++11-Standard können Programmierer Ideen klarer, einfacher und direkter auszudrücken sowie schnelleren und effizienteren Code zu schreiben. Bjarne Stroustrup, der Designer und ursprüngliche Implementierer von C++, erläutert die Details dieser Sprache und ihre Verwendung in seiner umfassenden Referenz „Die C++-Programmiersprache“. In „Eine Tour durch C++“ führt Stroustrup jetzt die Übersichtskapitel aus der Referenz zusammen und erweitert sie so, dass auch erfahrene Programmierer in nur wenigen Stunden eine Vorstellung davon erhalten, was modernes C++ ausmacht. In diesem kompakten und eigenständigen Leitfaden behandelt Stroustrup – neben Grundlagen – die wichtigsten Sprachelemente und die wesentlichen Komponenten der Standardbibliothek. Er präsentiert die C++-Features im Kontext der Programmierstile, die sie unterstützen, wie die objektorientierte und generische Programmierung. Die Tour beginnt bei den Grundlagen und befasst sich dann mit komplexeren Themen, einschließlich vieler, die neu in C++11 sind wie z.B. Verschiebesemantik, einheitliche Initialisierung, Lambda-Ausdrücke, verbesserte Container, Zufallszahlen und Nebenläufigkeit. Am Ende werden Design und Entwicklung von C++ sowie die in C++11 hinzugekommenen Erweiterungen diskutiert. Programmierer erhalten hier – auch anhand von Schlüsselbeispielen – einen sinnvollen Überblick und praktische Hilfe für den Einstieg.

Foundations of C++/CLI: The Visual C++ Language for .NET 3.5 introduces C++/CLI, Microsoft's extensions to the C++ syntax that allow you to target the common language runtime, the key to the heart of the .NET Framework 3.5. This book gives you a small, fast–paced primer that will kick–start your journey into the world of C++/CLI. In 13 no–fluff chapters, Microsoft insiders take readers into the core of the C++/CLI language and explain both how the language elements work and how Microsoft intends them to be used. This book is a beginner's guide, but it assumes a familiarity with programming basics. And it concentrates on explaining the aspects of C++/CLI that make it the most powerful and fun language of the .NET Framework. As such, this book is ideal if you're thinking of migrating to C++/CLI from another language. By the end of this book, you'll have a thorough grounding in the core language elements together with the confidence to explore further that comes from a solid understanding of a language's syntax and grammar.

Inside Maya 4.5 is the only book on Maya that covers the entire production process from concept to completion. The authors are animators and modelers from some of the top animation studios in the business. Inside Maya 4.5 covers the newest tools and upgrades to the program as the name "Inside" truly implies. This book builds a complete computer animated project from beginning to end in the Alias Wavefront Maya software. The book and companion CD walk the reader through a step by detailed step workflow. Going through the book, the reader gains a deeper, more relevant knowledge of how to actually design and complete a short animated piece. The guest authors are respected professionals in the design, production, and execution of similar pieces. Such a book has never been done in Maya and would complement the New Riders' Inside Studio Max 4 by Kim Lee.
