HLSL and Me

by Ian on Aug.26, 2009, under Rants

Similarities to Smalltalk:

  1. The documentation is uselessly vauge.
  2. It has very limited development tools
  3. People who can’t use it right think they can and post tutorials… those who truely know it sit back and laugh. They didn’t get help, so why should we?


  1. HLSL is useful!

On a more serious note, HLSL, or High Level Shader Language, is actually really cool.  Even in shader model 2, where I am limited to 64 arithmatic instructions, is extreamely powerful!  Once you get used to it of course…

You just have to think in vectors!
