This time, I’m sure. I’ve got my ultimate fractal compositor. So far, it was quite nice but, somehow, facing a feeling of repeatition while traveling accross the planet. Stereotypic fractal landscape… everywhere. Like crossing again and again the same mountain!?
[nerd mode: ON] I was listening to music… when I get a thought about disharmonic sounds. Obvious!!!
My fractal layers aren’t synchronized anymore, I’ve unleashed frequencies to create kind of resonant waves. Just like soundscapes… Disharmonic fractals… It may look snobbish (hope no), very nerdy (sorry), complex (not, actually), or maybe that’s a very common thing in the world of fractal-geek-mathematician-from-hell, I dunno at all, in fact I don’t care, but…
[nerd mode: OFF] …I’m sure, I’m in love with my new landscapes 😀
Boring 1/ worked on a new highres sky texture. It’s always pretty painful to make tileable clouds…
Boring 2/ locked myself 2 hours to track down my ribbon trails. Wasn’t neither an overlay problem, nor a z-depth issue… I’ve spent 2 hours checking out everything but the obvious one… a timing issue. Frames weren’t fired anymore… (Ogre::mRoot->_fireFrameEnded())… I shouldn’t rely on Ogre for this kind of stuff anyway. Blame for me.
Boring 3/ I’ve refined fractal terrain generation. I’ve got a lot of “almost cool” formulas, but not the perfect one yet. Damn!
Before running into a harder step, I worked today on every kind of interpolations. I love interpolations. I’m addicted since years… 🙂
I added interpolation onto terrain vertex.
I added interpolation on the camera movements.
I added nice interpolated inertia on vehicle displacement.
