[SOLVED] Geometry Shader question


#1

As the title states, do we have a hidden geometry shader pipeline in JME? The reason why I ask is I want to create a geometry shader that allows me to transition a planet from a sphere in stace to mountainous terrain as I gen closer. I also want to create an exploding ship effect with debris.

And probably this

Yes we have a geometry shader, I used it here :

Sounds like you need a tessellation shader, not a geometry one. Geo shaders add limited amounts of extra geometry, tessellation adds extra detail.

Edit: going from planet to surface requires a mesh LOD solution, not a shader solution.

OK I am an idiot. I should have looked at the test classes. Now I feed like a noob. Thank you for pointing out my ignorance lol

They’ve been working on this thing called Google for a while now, I hear it’s pretty good at helping in situations like this.


#7

That’s crazy talk.

I deserve that one :wink: It’s rare that I get a brain fart but when I do … it’s epic!

This one was more of a public shart
