Well I was up all night putting the last coat of turtle wax on PixelMachine, and now:

github.com/superjer/pixelmachine/

Enjoy!

If you forgot what it is:

I've made some more updates. It renders a low-res preview on startup now.

Also, the photon scene is different -- see generate_objects() in the source.

Same link.

Cool! Now make a new McDiddy's. Puhleashe.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

I was going to try to modify the 2007 source to do area lights for the sun, but really it seems not worth the bother. No offence but it's a bit hard to follow. So I looked at your GitHub stuff and it's virtually the same in that section (no point changing what already works I suppose) and it seems that doing this would be more trouble than it is in fact worth. Because your shading is in some sense cheaty.

Yeah. The github code is a lot better but it is still pretty ugly. It's quick, though!

It is fast. My plan had been to take an additional #DEFINE for the number of sun samples and one for the sun size (which I was probably going to have to ask you about, i.e. what's a good value) then approximate like crazy. I was going to assume that the sun could be approximated by a plane normal to the direction between the actual sun position and the hit point on the heightmap surface. I'd then split this plane into the number of sun-sample sections squared (i.e. along the x and y planes), jitter them to introduce a bit of smoothness into the shadow, then trace each one individually to change the shading. Of course because I don't know exactly how you do the shading I gave up, but had I known that it should have been easy enough to do, I think. It would fit nicely in the shadow-test loop as far as I can see.

And yes, it is crazy-fast.

Why only the source code?

Why can't we download the executable (yes copying the code and compiling it is too much work )?

There are binaries, actually. Which is good for me because to be honest, I hate trying to set up 'projects' in Visual Studio. I just want a command-line application!

How does ray tracing work again? It has something to do with shooting rays of light at pictures or something.

Broken?

I think ray tracing = sends a ray out, it reflects back to the camera and is recorded... I think thats what it is.

Wikipedia is the place to be, but essentially you fire a ray from a virtual camera in a certain direction. The program the calculates what colour that spot should be based on whether the ray hits anything, what light is shining on it, the surface properties and all that...

Let's zombie-up this truck.

The README file says that to change height and width, that you should add -wNUM for width, and hNUM for height and to replace NUM with the size you want. I don't understand where to put it though.

The most similar I have found is in the Makefile under either FLAGS, LIBS or LIBSWIN, is it in there? If it is, do I have to download MinGW (make) and SDL-devel (MinGW) and then create the exe myself that way? I would really like to know.

If those are flags, you should probably use the command prompt with something like pixelmachine -w324 -h234

Yeah, I understand that, but I don't know what to do afterwards. Just typing it in does not do anything. I might have to do as the README says and download 2 programs and create the exe instead of using the already existing one.

Uh, that's pretty much it. Perhaps it is not working? The executable provided ought to be good enough, I think.

Also: why was this truck dump'd!? Pixelmachine is awesome.

The exe available after downloading works fine, except that I can't seem to change the resolution of the pictures. I'll try creating a new executable via the programs requested later, if I manage to figure it out.
