"Beyond a Simple Physically Based Blinn-Phong Model in Real-time" SIGGRAPH 2012

[Course Notes (pdf)][Slides (pptx)]

There were errors in equations of the Oren-Nayar simplification in course notes and slides and the latest files fixed these errors. Since our implementation was correct, graphs and screenshots in the materials were also correct. (Oct. 31, 2012) Thanks James Canete for pointing out.

An image comparison of Oren-Nayar with IBL was wrong in the talk, which was fixed with these materials and course notes are the latest version. (Aug. 2012)

Materials for this course can be also found in http://blog.selfshadow.com/publications/s2012-shading-course/

"STAR OCEAN 4 : Flexible Shader Management and Post-processing" GDC 2009

 PPT file

 This presentation mainly contains an overview of our flexible shader management system and physically-based camera simulation.  More details in these slides are also covered in our previous presentations for  CEDEC 2007 (about the film simulation and some lens simulations) and CEDEC 2008 (about the flexible shader management). However, unfortunately, they are written in Japanese.

 We found the lens equation shown in the slide wrong and updated the slide from GDC version. Thanks for pointing out by Mr. Masaki Kawase.
