Generating Images with Shaders
Learn how to make algorithmic images and animations with GLSL shaders. Shaders programs are widely used in video games and other graphics applications to generate colours, simulate realistic materials, blend images, calculate lighting and perform other special effects. Participants will be introduced to the GLSL language, an open source shading language based on c that runs in a browser. They will synthesize colours and generate 2D shapes and patterns in realtime.
