DepthOfFieldFX

The DepthOfFieldFX library provides a GCN-optimized Compute Shader implementation of Depth of Field using the Fast Filter Spreading approach put forth by Todd Jerome Kosloff, Justin Hensley and Brian A. Barsky in their 2009 paper – Fast Filter Spreading and its Applications.

| FEATURES

The library implements depth of field using a Bartlett and Box filter. There is an option to run the Bartlett at quarter resolution for improved performance in some cases. 

The advantage of this approach is a fixed performance cost that is not dependent on kernel size. The library takes the scene Color Buffer and Circle of Confusion buffer as input and an Unordered Access View for the final results.

  • AMD Radeon™ GCN-based GPU (HD 7000 series or newer)
    • Or other DirectX® 11 compatible discrete GPU with Shader Model 5 support

FEMFX

A multithreaded CPU library for deformable material physics, using the Finite Element Method (FEM)

Cauldron Framework

Radeon™ Cauldron is our open source experimentation framework for DirectX®12 and Vulkan®.

GeometryFX

GeometryFX improves the rasterizer efficiency by culling triangles that do not contribute to the output in a pre-pass. This allows the full chip to be used to process geometry, and ensures that the rasterizer only processes triangles that are visible.

ShadowFX

ShadowFX library provides a scalable GCN-optimized solution for deferred shadow filtering. It supports uniform and contact hardening shadow (CHS) kernels.

TressFX

The TressFX library is AMD’s hair/fur rendering and simulation technology. TressFX is designed to use the GPU to simulate and render high-quality, realistic hair and fur.
