Mole wearing a top hat 2. If you wanted to make each wall of your house mesh look like it was made from purple plaid wallpaper, you would draw the plaid in an art program, save it as a jpeg, and use it in a fragment program as a: a. Normal b. Texture c. Polygon d. Secret ingredient [ 19 ] Let’s Make a Game Using Molehill! 3. Imagine a giant ogre decides to push your house over to the next lot on the street.

They define "how to draw" something. One shader might be used to render shiny metal while another could be used to draw explosions. In the Stage3D API, shaders are stored in the Program3D class. In order to create one, you need to create both a "fragment program" and a "vertex program". The combination of these two programs is a shader. When people ask you if you know how to write shaders, you will soon be able to answer, yes, I am familiar with writing vertex and fragment programs. Vertex program A vertex program is run once for every vertex in your mesh, every time you want to render it.

Each vector inside it describes the position, rotation, and scale. Often, you will need to move something at the same time as rotating it, perhaps also increasing its size. The Matrix3D class uses a 4x4 square matrix: a table of four rows and columns of numbers that hold the data for the transformation. You don't need to know how a matrix is organized. Just know that it is really useful as a way to gather all the movement, rotation, and scaling data for a 3D object, so you can use it in a single line of code.
