Postings have been pretty sparse of late, with no postings at all since September 2007. The reason I haven’t been keeping the blog up to date is that I’ve been busy with this:
The second edition of “Real-Time Rendering” is one of my favorite technical books, so when I heard Tomas and Eric were looking for someone to help out with the third edition I wasted no time in offering my services. Luckily, they accepted, and some very hard (but fun) work ensued. Given everything that has happened in the field since 2002 (when the second edition was published), bringing the book up to date while keeping to the high standards set by previous editions was definitely a challenge. I think we did a pretty good job. The cover image links to the Amazon listing, where thanks to their nifty “Look inside the book” feature you can form your own opinion. If you have a chance to attend SIGGRAPH this year (always a good idea), we plan to do a signing at the A K Peters booth.
