The source code for PVR is now available on GitHub. Head on over to http://pvrbook.github.com/pvr/ to clone or fork.
At the moment the build system only works for OS X, but Linux support should be coming in the next few weeks.
It’s taken a long time, but the book is finally in the last production stages: proof reading, typesetting and printing (!).
The release is planned for August, but there will be some previews and sneak peeks coming up before then: Next week I will be uploading the source code to GitHub for anyone who may be interested in an advance look (check out http://pvrbook.github.com/pvr/ for updates). And towards the end of July we will make one or two sample chapters available for download.
Last of all – a big shoutout and thanks to Vincent Serritella for designing the cover!
It was brought to my attention that the PDF file for Production Volume Rendering 1 had some bad fonts which cause Adobe Reader to hang when viewing certain pages. A version that fixes the issue has been uploaded to the course page.
The course notes for the second course are being uploaded – head over to the course page to download them. There’s lots of interesting new material this year.
If you’re at SIGGRAPH, the presentation is at 2pm, West Building, Rooms 211-214. See you there!
The course notes for Production Volume Rendering 1 – Fundamentals have been posted at the course page. Look for the second PDF in the coming days.
