What is it?
A small application demonstrating Shadows, Bump Mapping, Anti-Aliasing and a Quaternion Camera under DirectX 10. Besides using the keyboard and mouse to navigate through the scene, there's also a journey mode in which the camera automatically traverses control-points on the basis of a Catmull-Rom interpolation. Furthermore, the view's direction follows a spherical linear interpolation.
How to play?
|W, S, A, D||Move camera front (W), back (S), left (A) or right (D)|
|Arrow Keys||Move light front (↑), back (↓), left (←) or right (→)|
|Mouse movement||Change view direction|
|Q, E||Roll camera left (Q) or right (E)|
|SPACE||Save current position as control-point for interpolated camera journey|
|ENTER||Start interpolated camera journey (requires at least 4 saved control-points|
|1||Activate Bump Mapping and Shadow Mapping|
|2||Activate Shadow Mapping only|
|3||Enable wireframe mode|
|4||Disable wireframe mode|
|5 followed by 6||Toggle Multisampling anti-aliasing (MSAA); Sample-Count at beginning: 8x|
What you need for compiling:
- Visual C++ or rather Visual Studio 2010 or above
- DirectX SDK June 2010 (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=6812)
How to compile?
