Image Description, by

My name is Josua Hoenger, and attached is an image from a project called 'vLoop' which I'm doing during some nights besides my job as a realtime graphics programmer. vLoop is a simple but powerful tool to create fancy or natural looking volumetric textures. it allows flawless editing in realtime (!) and exports volumetric textures or cubemaps as *.dds files. this *.dds files can easy be used in DirectX as textures or lookuptables for all kind of (pixel- and vertex-)shaders. the seemless (in all directions: x,y,z!) textures allow perfect texturation of any 3d object or unlimited tricks for pixelshaders if they come in play as lookup tables... see the screenshots below (simplest 3d mapping + specular lightning) rendered with ATIs rendermonkey.
