pack dx11 field scalar Vector
Credits: Special thanks to Julien 'Vux' Vulliet for vvvv DX11 & to Robert "tmp" Willner (intolight.de) for the string shader node


vvvv pack for working with 2D and 3D scalar and vector fields.

Please check FieldTrip\girlpower\FieldGuide for an overview, and FieldTrip\girlpower\FieldSpecimens for some curious examples.

Some highlights:

• modular node based raymarching

• lots of 2D & 3D SDFs (signed distance fields)

• lots of useful noise functions

• texture baker (handy if you want to for example use 3D noise in existing shaders)

• some nice higher order tricks like being able to derive the gradient or curl of a function, Euler, RK2 & RK4 integration of a function

• DX11.Particles adapter


  •vvvv >= 35.7 + Addon Pack
  •DX11 pack >= 1.1

  •a GPU that supports Shader Model 5

Thanks chaps, hope it's useful.

Great contrib.

there are some dependencies to a couple of other packs that are not mentioned in the installer, have found:

mp.essentials (used for GridSplit in FG_05_Noise_Intro in girlpower)

Thanks Sunep.

The girlpower one is just an easy edit: https://github.com/everyoneishappy/FieldTrip/commit/7684567513dfb4f0143b5ff6f3abeb1aa03ded82

The particles could arguably be added to the installer, but I'd probably just rather make note of it in the adapter node's help patch/description. Makes sense?

sunep 09/01/2018 - 09:03

Yed, that is fine, just be good to highlight why there are red nodes when everything is installed according to the install instructions.

everyoneishappy 09/01/2018 - 11:35

Yeah good call. Added a note to description, help patch, and node overview for the particle nodes (red). Also slipped in a deform mesh GeomFX w/smooth normals, and several 3D fractal SDFs (blue) :D
