The slides from Iron Developer 2005 includes a presentation on the upcoming FX Composer 2. FX Composer makes shader development and optimization easier for programmers while providing an intuitive GUI for artists customizing shaders for a particular scene. The new FX Composer 2 will add a new plug-in architecture, UI improvements, Python.NET scripting, and support the OpenGL Shading Language as well as Cg and HLSL, with API independent shader editing. It will also use the COLLADA XML project format.
