Real-Time Collision Detection

''Accurate and effective collision detection in advanced environments is among the foundations of trendy state-of-the-art desktop video games. but collision detection is notoriously tough to enforce robustly and takes up an more and more huge fraction of compute cycles in present video game engines as more and more exact environments have gotten the norm.

Png image file into your code, which can be found in this chapter's assets folder. It will serve as a texture for one of the materials. How to do it... In this program, we will create two materials of type BitmapMaterial. Then we combine them by adding to CompositeMaterial. rotationX++; } } } } The resulting composition of materials applied to TorusKnot adds a shaded look to its surface. 39 Working with Away3D Materials How it works... We set up two different textures as input for two instances of BitmapMaterial.

If true, we apply gravity acceleration to gravity because, as we know, in real life, the falling body constantly accelerates over time. In the second statement, we check whether the camera has reached its default height. If true, we reset the camera to its default y-position and also reset the gravity property as it has grown significantly from the acceleration addition during the last jump. To test it in a real application, we should initiate an instance of the FPSController class. as: _fpsWalker=new FPSController(_cam,stage,20,12,250); 49 Working with Away3D Cameras We pass to it our scene camera3D instance and the rest of the parameters that were discussed previously.

Bitmap(new NormalReady()); Then we instantiate the PhongPBMaterial constructor passing in our regular (diffuse) map, normal map, and the shaded object itself: _pbmat=new PhongPBMaterial(_defaultMap,TangentToObjectMapper. transform(_normalMap,_sp,true),_sp); Here I use the TangentToObjectMapper utility to convert normal map calculations from Tangent to Object space. This transformation is necessary as the PixelBender shaders require Object space normal maps. The difference between Tangent and Object space is explained in the recipe Generating normal maps using Away3D NormalMapGenerator.
