Cel Shading in D3 or Q4

(Enforcer) #1

Im gonan be starting 2 new mods soon as well as working on the current 1 im working on now. And im wondering if anyone knows how to make a Cel Shaded (ful blown Cel shaded fragment Prog, with simple single texture shade and the anime black outlines.)

YOu can post here on this forum or over here http://www.doom3world.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=14692 on that forum.

im basically looking for what ydnar did with q3map2 and the cel shading effect in that.

You should be able to look at Ydnar’s code, I guess.
There are some versions of Q3map2 in the GTKRadiant source repository, the onlything I don’t know is if that version contains the cel shading feature.

k ill take a peak

are you sure q3map2 will be much use. after all q3map2 relies on pre compiled maps. the d3 q4 have to work at real time

not sure but atm is the only shot i have to try

There is already a semi-cel-shading mod out there for Doom 3. It only lacks the black outline around the objects: http://pcgamemods.com/mod/6604.html
If you want to write your own fragment/vertex program for Doom 3 you won’t be able to use q3map2 stuff you’ll need to learn how to write shaders in assembly.

This is an overview of what a fragment program is: http://oss.sgi.com/projects/ogl-sample/registry/ARB/fragment_program.txt

Hope that helps!

its not quite there is a lot more there but i dont realy like the cell shading style you get there. if you look at the cell sahding kinda anime and comics then things are shaderd by one flat colour then a darker shader of that colour to signify areas that are darker

the aproch here is more an engine way of rendering than using shaders, you sertainly wont get the same level of efficiency by going though shaders then a cell shading engine

the way i see that you coudl actuly get this work is like per pixel lighting but rather then rendering this render the flat shade on the surface then analysis if the value after lighting is higher or lower then a sertain value. if its value is higher leave that pixel alone if its lower then apply shading to that pixel to make it darker. you woudl still need a black outline shader to get a real comic effect tho

i think that method would be find for player models etc but not sure for walls floors etc as rounded lightources could leave strong rounded light shaped on walls etc making it look a lil wierd

Hi everyone! Guess, some of us met on the Doom3world board, discussing this topic…

I deal with the same problem since I intended to convert my Q3 “MONKEY KOMBAT Arena” mod ( http://monkeykombat.planetquake.gamespy.com ) to D3 .

It should be possible to recreate the effect. THIS http://monkeykombat.planetquake.gamespy.com/cartoon_scr_02.jpg is what I brought about after playing around with D3’s material keywords for a while. Pretty basic, but maybe something to build on.

Every box consists of two cubes (yep, one slightly bigger than the other), each covered with one of of the following materials:

qer_editorimage textures/bb2/outline.tga
sort decal
diffusemap textures/bb2/outline.tga

qer_editorimage textures/bb2/gelb_01
sort close
diffusemap textures/bb2/grau.tga
blend add
map textures/bb2/strand_gelb_01.tga

Not very elegant, though. But maybe one of you has an idea how to develope it…

Most of us take life for granted. We know that one day we must die, but usually we picture that day as far in the future, when we are in buoyant health, death is all but unimaginable. We seldom think of it. wow gold, The days stretch out in an endless vista. So we go about our petty task, hardly aware of our listless attitude towards life. The same lethargy, I am afraid, characterizes the use of our faculties and senses. Only the deaf appreciate hearing, only the blind realize the manifold blessings that lie in sight url=http://www.wowgoldvip.fr]wow gold. Particularly does this observation apply to those who have lost sight and hearing in adult WOW Power leveling life. But those who have never suffered impairment of sight or hearing seldom make the fullest use of these blessed faculties. Their eyes and ears take in all sights and sound hazily, without concentration, and with little appreciation. It is the same old story of not being grateful for what we conscious of health until we are ill. I have often thought it would be a blessing if each human being were stricken blind and deaf for a few days at some wow gold time during his early adult life. Darkness would make him more appreciative of sight; silence would teach him the joys of sound. WOW Power leveling Now and then I have tested my seeing friends
