New PDF release: Physically Based Rendering: From Theory to Implementation

Книга является отличным справочным пособием для всех кого интересует photorealistic rendering. В книге рассмотрено большое количество новых алгоритмов с реализацией на мета-языке (например дается subsurface scattering). Стоит отметить что Matt Pharr является редактором серии GPU gem stones от NVIDIA!

P. S. Спешу предупредить, что данный файл является рабочим вариантом книги и здесь текст (. .. а рисунки тем паче) представлен в начальном редакционном виде (общее число страниц не совпадает финальным вариантом, ИМХО за счет отсутствия части рисунков и более плотной верстки).

P. P. S. Данный файл был любезно предоставлен мне из торрентовской сети Dimitry N. за что ему огромное спасибо. Ежели кто найдет полную версию книги - сообщите, также ищу полные версии GPU gemstones 1,2.

00000 0, 0. height = 10 40 4. height = 40 rnessagebox "Done" Even though there is no else clause, the Listener knows you are finished, and the message box is displayed. 41 • MAXScript Basics Note: If you are executing scripts from a script editor window using Evaluate All, then this If-Then-Else procedure does not apply since the whole script will simply execute. List of Operators There are other operators you can use besides == and! =. Here is a complete list. _------------ Loop Structures A loop is a repetitive, or iterative, operation.

If you try to add a number and a string with the plus sign (+ ), MAXScript will generate an error. Before you can append a number to a string, you must convert the number value to a string data type. You accomplish this by using the as stringcommand. Suppose you want to make the following string: stringl 60 = "Your customer number is 345" Creating and Running Scripts III If you have the customer number as an integer, you can construct this string in this manner: custNum = 345 -- custNum is an integer custString = custNum as string -- makes a string from custNum stringl = "Your customer code is " + custString You can also use as integer and as float to convert a string to an integer or float number, respectively.

Consider the RGB values needed to make red and yellow: Red: [255,0,0] Yellow: [255,255,0] The second component, the green value, will have to go from °to 255 gradually over the course of the loop. 63 • MAXScript Basics Suppose there are five objects in the scene. You could make the green component to progress as follows: Object 1: 1/5 * 255 = 51 Object 2: 2/5 * 255 = 102 Object 3: 3/5 * 255 = 153 Object 4: 4/5 * 255 = 204 Object 5: 5/5 * 255 = 255 However, the green component would be 51 for the first object.
