Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Howto:Shader programming in FlightGear

Parameter entries defined in the Effect file correspond to a property tree data container (static or variable). They will contain the data needed by the shader program to perform its magic. The type of information contained in the property tree might be program control data or variable/static data that the shader program can manipulate prior to sending on to render.
In the case of ALS Lights, below is some of the data passed to, and used by, the shader.
<small><display_xsize><use>/sim/startup/xsize</use></display_xsize>
<display_ysize><use>/sim/startup/ysize</use></display_ysize>
<view_pitch_offset><use>/sim/current-view/pitch-offset-deg</use></view_pitch_offset>
<quality_level><use>/sim/rendering/shaders/landmass</use></quality_level>
<tquality_level><use>/sim/rendering/shaders/transition</use></tquality_level>
</small>
Some of this data may play a duel role inside the shader program. In other words it might be used to control other functions in addition to ALS Lights.
