ParticlesGPU Library Guide

tutorial effect shader particles tutorial gpu

about

Hello Everybody,
i spent some days in writing this guide so you will better understand ParticlesGPU and hope will be able to customize it as you want.
this is really a pre release of the guide, it's not finished. (my laptop's GPU is dead, so i can't procede anymore..)
As soon as possible i'll post a new release of the document.

You can download the ParticlesGPU library here:

Hey Natan,

All the people knows that open office is very hard for the GPU, take care the next time, ;)

thanks a lot for share your knowledge, it makes the shader theory more understandable for me, not only about particles.

Ari.

hey dottore, thanks for super guide for super-duper shaders)
Kalle is extremely userful for patches screenshots that supposed to be printed. do your patch background so white as virgin paper

few days ago i saw your monstermachine, now i'm very sad to hear about your GPU.

but bo27: nice to hear that i am finally useful somewhere :)

@bo27

As I just learned from Kalle you have to declare also the (category) of the node to create the correct link

Kalle (VVVV) = Kalle (VVVV)

Aw, shame your GPU died, maybe it just couldn't handle your HLSL wizardry :)

Thanks for putting this together, looks like a great learning resource.

robe 23/01/2011 - 17:48

sugokuGENKI 03/06/2011 - 03:31

awesome library plus good documentation.
that's simply exquisite

> 8bit number = 128 possible numbers (taken from 0 to 1, working in rgb space).
You mean 256 numbers, right?

alg 19/01/2012 - 22:19

We need another part )

esnho 12/02/2014 - 03:47

This is really a very nice reading.
Did you wrote other parts?

Hello dottore. This is the second time i´ve been downloading your particle - guide. The first time nothing was working.. so i thought my grafic card is not able to visualize particles.. but this was an error of mine. Now it sprays, i can see fireworks and will analyze. Is the particlesGPU_2dPositionVeloccityCycle a user - node? Thank you for your tutorial. u.

joreg: Two #vvvv workshops this week in #berlin: Friday: Physical Computing, Saturday: Computer Vision. Tickets: upcoming-full-day-vvvv-gamma-workshops-in-berlin

joreg: @cznickesz also feel free to join our chat for such questions: chat

~3d ago

cznickesz: @joreg: Yeah, I´ll give it a try! Thx

~3d ago

joreg: @cznickesz: we're hoping this week. but depends on feedback. please test your project and let us know if it works.

~3d ago

cznickesz: @joreg: I should stop asking my questions so cryptic ;-) So right away: is final Beta39 hours, days or weeks away?

~3d ago

joreg: @cznickesz: the idea of an RC is exactly to make sure your projects will work with it. your last chance to report problems with b39.

~3d ago

cznickesz: So how "RC" is the "RC3"? I have to update an old project soon and I´m wondering if I should wait and directly update to Beta39

~4d ago

joreg: @takuma, the "one frame" issue was fixed in RC3 for beta39, see: beta39-release-candidate

~4d ago

Takuma: @joreg thank!! Ill try this. Are there a way to send video texture from vvvv to vl? fromimage node in vl somehow only sends 1 frame
