Stencil Shadow Volumes

Since my first attempt at stencil shadows sucked , could someone please explain the steps needed to create stencil shadows in a scene, please


there were some (big) threads in the past about this topic. searching the forum could help.

Yeah this board has lots of post about shadow volumes. The latest one is called “carmack’s reversed vs unreversed.” Goodluck on your next attempt on shadow volumes, they can really be difficult.


This might help:

Thanks, i will have a look around

There is one with explaination at the powervr site here (with source)
lots more interesting demos with source!

most are direct3d there are a few opengl but the techniques are the same
