XNA for C++ Viability Figured I'd ask an open community if what they'd think about a C++ port of XNA thrown on top of DX10 (lacking xbox 360 support of course).

Scenegraph's Again?!? So from what I've gathered from the stickies and random threads a scenegraph is a hierarchical tree based structure designed to represent entities in a parent-child relationship. Fine and dandy but what I'm more interested in is what data belongs...

Transforming points into "spaces" in lighting equations I was wondering when transforming points in a vertex shader does it matter what "space" they're in when it comes to lighting. Meaning one can transform the points into "world" space by multiplying it by the world matrix, etc. Is there a stan...

3D object shine, question It's basic environment mapping, the DirectX SDK has a sample on cubemaps which provides reflections.
