While Triton’s been getting most of the press on our blog lately (due to major updates to IPP and CUDA,) SilverLining has actually been seeing more development work and updates over the past few months. Here’s a summary of what’s...

Triton offers a “user shader” framework that allows you to extend Triton’s shaders, while keeping your integration code separate from ours. This can be incredibly useful if you need to integrate Triton with a proprietary lighting algorithm or deferred rendering...

While Triton relies on GPU-accelerated FFT transformations for its speed, it contains a fallback for systems that don’t support CUDA, OpenCL, or DirectCompute: Intel’s Integrated Performance Primitives. This gives us a highly parallelized CPU implementation of FFT’s, so Triton will...

Just a quick note that your libraries provided with SilverLining and Triton are all binary-compatible with applications built with the recent Visual Studio 2019 release. Both Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio 2019 are compatible with libraries built with Visual...

We had a couple of customers encounter the same problem this week in SilverLining, so it seems worth writing up here! This issue affects customers using a left-handed coordinate system; usually, there are DirectX customers. The problem arises from different...

SilverLining offers many alternatives for rendering dense clouds, ranging from particle-based dense CUMULUS_CONGESTUS cloud layers, to truly volumetric STRATOCUMULUS layers, to highly-efficient STRATOCUMULUS_PARTICLES layers, and finally the fastest option of all: the STRATUS cloud layer type. STRATUS is a bit...

It’s hard not to know that virtual reality is the latest craze in training and simulation. The appeal of VR is obvious – instead of building huge domes or surrounding a student with screens, VR offers a solution that is...

We recently had an interesting support call from one of our customers – they were using SilverLining in a system with geometric distortion on a dome surface, and encountering visible seams in clouds that spanned the channels that made up...
