ShadeView 1.06 is a free OpenGL-based picture viewer and shader benchmark that lets you display your favorite pictures (40 formats supported) or even videos, real-time enhanced by one of dozens hand-optimized NV/ARB/GLSL shaders. Experienced users can write their own shaders and/or test performance of various parts of graphics pipeline via built-in benchmarking capabilities. The simple shader interface makes it easy to create good-looking animated effects. There’s even support for older GPU’s, so simple effects can still be performed using texture combiners. For use as a picture viewer, there’s high-quality bicubic filtering using the GL_NV/ARB_fragment_program extension.
