Hi, anyone knows where can i get some source code of shadow volumes to look at ? I've already looked at "Infinit Shadow Volumes" by Cass and Kilgard but after that my problem persists. Anyone ?

Thanks, bye

There are a few different shadow volume demos on nvidia's site that has been there long before that great paper you mentioned. On the main opengl.org page there is a source port of quake that uses shadow volumes and the source is there too. I've looked at the source a while back and it's great. What exactly are your problems? Maybe we can help?

You might want to take a look at my StencilShadows (http://esprit.campus.luth.se/~humus/?page=3D) demo (with source).

Nehe has a stencil shadow tutorial, which I found easy to follow. I then converted it to use the infinite shadow volumes.
Try: nehe.gamedev.net

Hi guys, thanks for your answers, i've checked neHe tutorials and it is really easy to follow, i'll try it just like nehe tutorial and then i'm going to try to convert it to infinite shadow volumes.
