Default Re: New demo: FBOs

FBOs are just another implementation of the MRT idea aren't they? I think I read the whitepaper on them the other week - they look neat. Seems to me like you can get around a lot of traps even present in the DX implementation of MRTs, and it'll be nice to finally get away from pbuffers (arrrrgh). Unfortunately, I can't get your demo to run, as my version of OGL doesn't currently support the required extension.. I imagine that if I upgraded to a new beta driver, post 75, I'd be able to run it? Or is that not the case?

EDIT: Ahhhh! I remember where I saw them - there was a presentation on them at the GDC recently that was put online on the NV website.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.
