### Fast way to clip non lit pixels in a lightvolume

Hello,

currently I'm working on a deferred shader engine with dynamic pointlights. To reduce fragment shader invocations I use stencil lightvolumes. However the result shows many lit pixels in...

### Using stencil lightvolumes in forward rendering?

hello,

I wonder if this can be done. Suppose you have a relatively simple game geometry with small local lightsources. Suppose also that the engine can clip many polygons (but not all) the light...

That might be a clue.
16bit rgb = 6 bytes = non power of two while
16bit rgba = 8 bytes = power of two.

If it's true than I'd be wasting 2 bytes. That doesn't sound like much but when you...
