K3 update schedules

Postby Janusz Biela » Thu Dec 29, 2016 3:43 pm

Since 2017 G. will release new K3 updates every month on last day of each month.

We have new coder on the board also!

Next updates will contain probably the newest implementations of Global Illumination: VCM also in Photon Mapping!

https://graphics.cg.uni-saarland.de/fil ... ffc591.jpg (example from other engine render to show idea how it works)

After finishing Core K3 will receive real time post processing system (white balance, contrast, clip white/dark, etc)
After that K3 System Shader.

No new GUI yet, still old for testing purposes.
After that we will wipe 95%. Will be only very simple GUI, soon details.

K3 OB6 on my desk (still number 5+ before release). I will check version and we will make update soon.

Here are list of bugs which must wait for next and last Open Beta 7 because these needs more work:
