With the advent of Microsoft® DirectX® version , the revolution of programmable graphicshad arrived. With vertex shaders for the programmable geometry. Vertex and pixel shader programming allows graphics and game developers to create photorealistic graphics on the personal computer for the first time. Wolfgang also used a good part of the book for instructing beginners to vertex programs and pixel shaders. The rest are all “advance” topics.

Some of the VS and PS tricks in the book are not straight forward and substantial understanding of D3D and shaders are implicitly a requirement. Special effects shaders are also presented, including those for such effects as bubbles, rippling water, animated grass, and particle flows. There will be different suggestions for advanced rendering, data structures, physics, animation, and so on. Vertex and pixel shader programming allows graphics and game developers to create photorealistic graphics on the personal computer for the first time.
