Synopsis: Are you ready to take your game development skills to the cutting edge? Advanced Visual Effects with Direct3D takes you on an incredible journey through the world of advanced game development. Learn the hottest topics and newest techniques to make your games a step above the rest.

You will learn everything from how to implement HLSL shaders into an engine to how to write an advanced particle system, how to use volumetric shadowing, and how to develop advanced vertex skinned animations-and everything in between! A sample application at the end of this book shows you the incredible results that come from combining these advanced level game development skills and techniques. Are you ready to be unstoppable?
