Amigaworld.net News   Amigaworld.net News : Cow3D V6 for Warp3D Nova
   posted by amigakit on 14-Jan-2017 13:42:32 (10175 reads)
Alain Thellier has released a new version of Cow3D which now has support for Warp3D Nova.

The latest version 6 is available to download on Aminet.

Cow3D is a benchmarking and testing tool for 3D on the Amiga. It also supports the older Warp3D and Warz3D software renderer.

Alain has included the Shader source code in the package for Warp3D Nova which is the first 3D software to support modern Shaders on AmigaOS. Now users have the ability to compare and contrast between old fixed pipeline 3D systems such as Warp3D and the new modern Warp3D Nova.

@all
Could those posting results please also post them to my blog? It'll make collating results so much easier.

Any idea of what gain will we get from doing it through DMA?
I guess that you've no timeframe for that to happen, what are the difficulties to use DMA Instead of CPU. In "classic" chipset using DMA was easy :).

The "classic" chipset also have billions fewer transistors than a modern GPU. GPUs have become seriously complicated since then.

The exact performance gains will depend on what's being rendered. I expect it to make a big difference in some cases, but can't say by how much.

Its totaly out of cow3d-topic, but still w3d related: maybe you know, is there anyone who works on the minigl.library stub, so it will use w3d nova ? I mean, just to boost all the minigl apps we have already on os4depot. Maybe aeon, or daniel ?:)

Not that I know of.

@Hans
I tried 6 or 7 time but it was always asking me to put the captcha which I did but failed.
Tried with my iPhone.

@Kamelit0
Sorry to hear that. I personally haven't had an issue with the captchas. Unfortunately, I can't disable them because there's a continual stream of comment spam attempts. To make matters worse, Google seems to punish websites with such spammy content and links (even if the links are "nofollow" or not even real links).

I'm using mollom for the captchas, if someone knows of one that's at least as effective but easier to use, please let me know.

Hans
