New renderer
« on: October 08, 2009, 00:45 »

I have uploaded a first umodel version with the new renderer system. It has the same rendering capabilities as previous versions with a small exception: if your videocard and drivers has OpenGL 2.0 support (GLSL), lighting will be done per-pixel, not per-vertex.
Keys Ctrl+G can toggle OpenGL 2.0 / OpenGL 1.1 rendering.

This version was tested by me on two GL2.0 computers, but both has NVidia videocard. I'm expecting bugs with ATI videocards because this company always has problems with OpenGL.
Older videocards (without GL2.0) will use old rendering system.

I need feedback about older NVidia videocards (GeForce FX 5xxx etc) and ATI videocards. May be there are more companies has GLSL support?
Also, my Linux system has ATI Radeon 8500 (GL1.4) system, so new renderer on Linux is also untested.

Any feedback is welcome. Post comments (please, no "cool" etc posts, only useful information Smiley) in this topic.

No. I will use GL2.0. I think it's enough for umodel.

Uploaded new umodel. It fixes problems with modern ATI videocards (thanks to Deathdoor from russian board for testing).
New umodel adds bumpmapping feature. No specularity mask yet, will appear soon.

Known problem with ATI videocard: new renderer is significantly darker than old one.

ATI lighting has been fixed.
Also I've fixed emission map (incorrect equation were used).
Additionally, there is a better GOW2 material support.

New umodel has rewritten renderer for UE2 materials. It is not yet finished, but it is already supports much more complex materials than before. Look at screenshots here to compare with previous pictures.
Also, Trabes: Vengeance and Bioshock materials are updated (gallery).
And of course, exporter will produce better materials (as they are looks in renderer).
