Title: Irrlicht DirectX11 GPU Raytracing plus FXAA anti-aliasing (SiO2)

Image

Notes:
    Uses my own modified version of evandromillian's DX11 driver, supporting native DDS textures, cubemaps, compiled HLSL, enhanced DX11 Technique support and other additions/bugfixes.
    Anti-aliasing is via nVidia's FXAA (From the nVidia DX11 SDK). This is a simple way of performing relatively cheap anti-aliasing. Very easy to integrate, just needed the raytracing output to calculate and emit Luma. Not perfect (some strange halos around some of the spheres, for example) but easy to implement and gives good performance.
    Raytracer calculates first-hit rays, reflection rays and shadows rays. No first-hit speed-up yet.
    In the raytrace shader, rays that fail to hit anything are looked up in the sky cubemap (including reflections rays).
    The scene is held by Irrlicht as a set of sphere nodes, a lightnode and an animator on the light. Each frame, the scene is gathered together and uploaded to the raytrace shader which renders to an off-screen texture. FXAA is then applied as a post-process.
    Sky cubemap made by myself using Bryce.

Very neat :) I really like the raytracing demos :)

Maybe you could perform besides substractive operations and normal mapping?

There are lots and lots of things I can add/improve/fix. First-hit speedup, polygons, planes, BVH, GI, and moving to a DX11 compute shader are just a few that come to mind. Work on the engine continues...

BTW I'll be releasing the demo soon. Looks nicer when the scene is animated. 8)

Don't be afraid of Sio2! You're not going to let him win by default are you? 1 day left for those awesome irrlicht screenshots!

Meanest Void (WIP Title)
Image

Hi my first post and just before the time limit :)

This is my spare time project, a little fun space shooter.
Current features:
  • bloom
  • bump mapping
  • space physics with Newton Game Dynamics and Irrklang for Sound
  • Bots with FSM and steering behaviors such as seek and flee (quite a challenge for a player) and obstacle avoidance

I wanted to wait to introduce my project until I have a real GUI and some other features, but I just wanted to keep the spirit of competition alive.
A proper presentation of my project will follow.

"...and just before the time limit"

The post says "Posted: Fri Sep 21, 2012 12:45 am". Strange!

Yeah, sorry. I was merely being sarcastic that, for my time zone, the post was after the deadline. :mrgreen:

Ah well, would be boring without a competition. I already considered posting one of my shots, but those consist currently 99% of debug-output :-)

god bless the balls, the simplest physics primitive :)

I won't participate this month. I will show something new when i have it.
