Building on last year's "Shaders 101" talk, this presentation will go beyond the basics and present several more advanced shader techniques. As the industry continues to explore the exciting world of shader creation, tech artists will learn basic concepts and functions, and then put them together to create beautiful pixels. No previous shader or programming experience is required, but basic math understanding will be helpful.
