why a precise normal management is important for performances & rendering: on the left, one normal per vertex, on the right, just by setting several egdes as "sharp" in , the flat faces looks flat :)
the two models have the same number of vertices

after several days of struggle with cache, binary files and godot resources management, it is now possible to import custom models from to , enabling (at last) all the features of the code:

evening fun: trying to understand how to use mysql workbench... omg, it's a beast! running on a local mysql server (all this without , currently in routine maintenance: there is enough other sources online!)

It is extremely cool that even on the other side of the world of #SIGGRAPH2019, one can read "Path Tracing in Production" and "Path Guiding in Production" course notes just like that. ~200 pages of excellent material.

@Schizophrenicart did u know that atari sold the jaguar shell molds to a dental equipment company

it was a long time i didn't land on this kind of website: - pay a visit and you will realise how you are used to layout standards!

i'm struggling with mesh data formats in , anybody with a bit xp in this field here?
by the way, dev is going well: a set of additional objects allows efficient conversion of std mesh into "softskin"meshes + cache system (yellow box)
@polymorphcool "'still trying to find an instance that is not full of hateful and prejudice people." : you have to be careful to the community rules of your instance -> mastodon is a group of villages, and each one have a different way to deal with respect and political views.
