The "Super Formula" is a mathematical formula that describes many shapes existing in nature.
To demonstrate GPGPU and to show that it can be used for many purposes including simply having some fun, we developed the "SuperShaper".
A tool that uses OpenCL to create high-detail 3D models using the Super Formula.
The SuperShaper is still in development. An development snapshot can be downloaded here.
The SuperShaper now supports any OpenCL 1.0 device (CPU/GPU). Tested on: Intel (CPU), AMD (CPU & GPU) and NVidia (GPU).
The OpenCL and OpenGL on one device situation is still the fastest due to buffer sharing.
A simple version is now available online using WebGL. At least Firefox 4, Chroome 9 or Safari 5.1 is required. MS Internet Explorer does not support WebGL.
- Very fast
- Create endless amounts of different 3D shapes
- Generate random shapes
- Store your favourite shapes for later
- Toroidal or Spherical volumetric transformation
- Spiral modulation
- Shader based rendering with reflection and multiple per pixel lighting parameters
- Semi portable application (no installation required)
High detail, up to a 400000 vertices
- Morph between shapes
- Support for any OpenCL capable device
- A modern (primary) Video Card supporting OpenGL3.2 or better
- Windows XP/Vista/7 (x86/x64)
NVidia GeForce 8800 or better.
AMD Radeon HD 5xxx or better. (Get the driver package with OpenCL support!)
OpenCL 1.0 support on any CPU or GPU in the system
- Support for Apple OSX, Linux and mobile platforms
- More visualisation options
- More Super Formula parameters
- GUI improvements
- Improved SuperFormula parameter animation and morphing control
