2016 Gallery 6: Other OpenGL Stuff

A side project that never developed into anything. Simply got some rendering stuff copied over and then it was abandoned

I worked on making a rasterizer for shapes defined by quadratic curves. It works off the assumption that, taken any point you can cast a ray in any direction, count the number of intersections going one way and going the other and the resulting number determines whether the point is inside the shape or not. The white interior here is actually a rasterized bitmap created using the curves. I looped through each pixel and performed the containment test to determine whether it was white or transparent. There was no antialiasing and it was painfully slow and unusable but it was a great educational project.
