Superformula GLSL

I’ve just managed to get a GLSL version of the amazing VVVV Superformula shader working in Quartz Composer. It’s early days yet, as so far I’ve not been able to get the lighting working. For this version, I’ve simply commented-out all the bits that seem to relate to lighting, and substituted the very simple fake lighting Desaxismundi used in the Surfaces Simple shader I converted earlier.

    Well, thank you yanomano!

    thing is, I really want to be able to work out how to do lighting, even if I don’t use it!

    Nice work, I really like the soft texture. I don’t know any GLSL, kind of jealous that you can get something that smooth working in quartz. Would you be interested in bringing in a beta tester ;).

    I’m jealous of the people who wrote the code I translated- I’m a lonnnnnnng way off knowing how to write this kind of stuff from scratch (and with my lack of maths skills, I’m probably never going to get there)…

    The later screenshots of this QTZ are much nicer, by the way. Once I got the edges smoothed-out a little, it looked much nicer.
    Never did manage to get lighting to work with this one though, for some reason…

    I’ll consider the beta tester idea- it’s good to get some feedback, and test stuff on another system, too.
    Good thought.
