The overall dataflow of the 3d rendering pipeline in vvvv looks as follows:

vvvv passes several data to the graphics card:

  • Mesh
  • Texture
  • User defined variables
  • Render Sates
  • Transform matrices

First the vertexshader programm is applied to each vertex. Its major task is to project the geometry onto the screen. The output is the vertex position in screenspace for the rasterizer and other data for the pixel shader.

Between vertexshader and pixelshader the conversion from vector graphics to pixel graphics happens. This is done by the rasterizer, that calculates which screen pixels belong to the geometry. It also interpolates per-vertex data sent from the vertex shader to per-pixel data for pixels which lie between the vertices.

Then the pixelshader programm is executed for every visible pixel, as defined by the rasterizer. It calculates the final color of the pixel.

tonfilm: @cznickesz #vvvv #vl #xenko integration is not ready for the public yet, it's still under heavy development... more updates soon.

cznickesz: Possibly dumb question: is there any release containing xenko-integration right now?

udo2013: I just want to know why the camera does not work. should be easy to be answered.

udo2013: an answer, please. also there was a 4d julia set in dx9. that must have programmed one. haalllooo!!

udo2013: where are the people who have translated shadertoy's mandelbulb in hlsl ?? for vvvv
