Later, however, we will add more functionality to allow different effects on each part of a model. However, before we start replacing the instances of BasicEffect assigned to our models, we need to extract some useful information from them, such as which texture and color to use for each ModelMeshPart. Tag = tag; } } This function will be called along with buildBoundingSphere() in the constructor: ... buildBoundingSphere(); generateTags(); ... Notice that the MeshTag class has a CachedEffect variable that is not currently used.
As we can't possibly simulate all the bounced rays of light (technically, [ 56 ] Chapter 2 we can with a technique called ray tracing, but this is very slow), we instead simplify it into a constant color value. 1); Now, we once again need only a small modification to the pixel shader: float3 output = DiffuseColor + AmbientColor; This will produce the following output (if you're following along with the code files, I've changed the model to a teapot at this point, as it will demonstrate lighting better due to its shape).
Aspx. Summary Now that you have completed this chapter, you have an understanding of the fundamentals of 3D graphics. You know how to create a new game project with Visual Studio, how to add content to its content project, and how to remove content. You also have a basic understanding of the content pipeline and how to interact with it through code and the ContentManager. You have also created a number of useful classes that will be reused later, including the CModel and Camera classes, and all of the derived camera classes.
