    AMD LadyBug and Mecha DX11 demo download
    By Hilbert Hagedoorn, October 27, 2009 - 9:17 PM





    AMD released the Mecha and LadyBug technology demo's yesterday on the developer website. Unfortunately it required a developer login in order to download them. Therefore we hosted them on our file-severs.
    AMD Mecha DirectX 11 Demo
    The Mecha demo shows the results of a new approach to rendering semi-transparent objects without pre-sorting, known as order-independent transparency (OIT). It is made possible by the ATI Radeon HD 5800 Series of graphics processors and the new features of Microsoft DirectX 11 technology. Blending is an order-dependent operation that requires sorting objects before rendering them. Atomic operations and append buffers make it possible to construct per-pixel fragment lists and sort them on the GPU. The results are a significant increase in speed and accuracy over those possible with traditional techniques.

    AMD Ladybug DirectX 11 Demo
    The Ladybug demo shows the results of a new approach to simulating lens-accurate depth-of-field effects based on real-world parameters of focal length and focus distance. This technique is made possible by the ATI Radeon[​IMG] HD 5800 Series of graphics processors and the Microsoft DirectX 11 and Direct Compute 11 technologies. Depth-of-field is used in feature films by cinematographers to subtly guide a viewer’s attention through a shot or to heighten the emotion of a scene.
