Comparison of Projection Methods for Rendering Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is rapidly gaining popularity, and may soon become a common way of viewing 3D environments. While stereo rendering has been performed on consumer grade graphics processors for a while now, the new wave of virtual reality display devices have two properties that typical applications have not needed to consider before. Pixels no longer appear on regular grids and the displays...

API without Secrets: Introduction to Vulkan* Part 6

This part of the tutorial presented a way to use textures (combined image samplers, in fact) inside shaders. To do this we created an image and allocated and bound a memory to it. We also created an image view. Next, we copied data from a staging buffer to the image to initialize its contents. We also created a sampler object that defined a way in which image data was read inside shaders.
