GTA V - Graphics Study - Adrian Courrèges
Wonderful, dense, three-part study of one of GTA V's renderer. I like Adrian's posts because he focuses on the art of the technology, as well as the technology of the art; a reminder that game art isn't just plonking OBJ files into a world, but relies on a whole host of developers, maths, and drawcalls.

Valve really are incredible; just watching the UI and technology for this in action is a little jawdropping. (Also, one for my friends who work in After Effects/3D prototyping and video...)

It’s the arts « Never Knowingly Underwhelmed
This sounds great: Andrew Collins presenting a 30-minute documentary on a history of 3D - from perspective drawing through early stereoscopy to the present - on Radio 4 this week. Must remember to listen-again/iPlayer/huffduff/whatever it.

Suicidator City Generator: a procedural city creation script for Blender
"Suicidator City Generator (SCG) is a Python script for Blender... With it, you can automatically create entire, three-dimensional modern cities in a matter of seconds by adjusting various parameters, such as city size and complexity, rather than creating each building, each street, and each texture manually." Lovely; the preview video should give you a good idea of its capabilities.

Get this game: the amazing anamorphics of Looksley's Line Up - Boing Boing
" we know the [Nintendo 3DS'] 3D will have little to do with tracking technology, but Looksley's Line Up (as Attakoreda has now been released as in the U.S.) still might've made a nice showcase title for the new tech." Attakoreda - that funny 3D hidden word game of a few months back - is getting a western DSI release. Excellent.

Lou's Pseudo 3d Page
Fascinating article on pseudo-3D graphics, and raster-based road graphics in particular; coders and gamers alike might enjoy this, although it's quite technical. (And: Racin' Force is just beautiful; I forgot how gorgeous voxels could be).

Building Rome in a Day
"In this project, we consider the problem of reconstructing entire cities from images harvested from the web. Our aim is to build a parallel distributed system that downloads all the images associated with a city, say Rome, from After downloading, it matches these images to find common points and uses this information to compute the three dimensional structure of the city and the pose of the cameras that captured these images. All this to be done in a day." Woah.

july 2009 by infovore - Graphics Programming Black Book
"Michael Abrash's classic Graphics Programming Black Book is a compilation of Michael's previous writings on assembly language and graphics programming (including from his "Graphics Programming" column in Dr. Dobb's Journal). Much of the focus of this book is on profiling and code testing, as well as performance optimization. It also explores much of the technology behind the Doom and Quake 3-D games, and 3-D graphics problems such as texture mapping, hidden surface removal, and the like." My old URL for this no longer works, but fortunately, this one does.

Vol Libre, an amazing CG film from 1980
"The commercial worked on Lucas but a few years later, the computer graphics group at ILM was sold by Lucas to Steve Jobs for $5 million and became Pixar. Loren Carpenter is still at Pixar today; he's the company's Chief Scientist." Marvellous.

Even if it's got a long way to go, there's so much promise and potential here - and it's interesting to see how refined some of the puzzle ideas are. And: mind-bending in the way the best puzzle games are.

A layman’s guide to projection in videogames. « Significant Bits
"Oftentimes when a videogame has a skewed, overhead point of view, we call it isometric. That’s rarely the accurate term, though, and it’s not just pointless semantics." A not half bad guide to the different kind of projections used in 3D - and pseudo-3D - games. And, of course, a reminder that most isometric games aren't, and that the projection in Ultima VII was *bonkers*.

Inside Scoop -
"I'm going to give you the answer right away and the answer is yes. The only difference between SimCity's 3D and a first-person game's 3D is that SimCity uses "orthographic projection" and limited view freedom. The intent of this article is to explain both of these differences and the reasons for the decision to implement them. Along the way I'll briefly mention some of the rendering techniques and used in SimCity 4 and the issues that come with them." Rather good article explaining about optimising 3D for fixed projections.
