  1. SOPGI vex raytracer

    Hello everybody, i'm finishing coding a small raytracer that run in sop using vex. one of those thing I always wanted to try to do myself. it store everything on points so no rasterization plane as the idea was to have all the rendering data accessible for later use as you would with any other attributes. it is some sort of an hybrid in the sense that it is correct enough to try to make things look good. it feature many BRDF shading models, photon mapping global illumination ( mathematically done the simple way but it work) and full recursive ray's tree splitting for reflections and refractions. Here a few videos showing some of the feature and a big part of them are already available for download as an OTL for the non commercial edition for everybody interested with the hope it can be helpful to anybody that never coded those things before like me, as I learned a lot during the way. here the videos: This one have been updated recently with lots of new clips showing improvements there and there And this one got th GI part of it with a little demo at the end. download link in the description area: Hope you enjoy, best alessandro
  2. Recursive VEX functions

    Hey guys, I've been trying to find a way of making a recursive function in VEX. I'm trying to aggregate infromation from points and build an return array, but can't get any recursive funtions to work. For example, when ever I try running something like- void printer(int count){ count+=1; printf("\n %c", count); if(count < 10){ printer(count); } } printer(1); It throws the error- "Call to undifiend function 'printer'" I know I can go the messy route with while loops and maintaining variables by adding and subtracting elements and having a result variable... but this is needlessly insane to try to do a basic recursive function. I've tried giving pointer variables, and it seems like vex doesn't want to accept standard C pointer code. Or at least doesn't like * in the input variables of a void definition. Has anyone had success with this and might be able to point me in a useful direction for vex code? (No, this can't be done with nodes or a python node for the real node I'm working on) Thanks in advance! -Kevin
