Dawn ushered in the dawn of cinematic shading with the introduction of the NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX family of GPUs. Now, her twin sister Dusk shows us what's possible with a GeForce FX 5900 GPU.
An urban, moonlit street is Dusk's stage as she relaxes to music overheard outside a nightclub. She dances to the beat, beckoning the attention of her nocturnal friends of the forest, who join her briefly before flitting off into the night.
- Realistic Skin: Dusk's skin is a custom fragment shader that includes shadowing, diffuse and specular color, bump, and a simple subsurface scattering effect.
- Realistic Hair: Her hair is comprised entirely of geometry and is only possible due to the high-performance vertex shaders of the GeForce FX 5900 GPUs. Together, vertex and fragment shaders allow for an anisotropic lighting model, resulting in extremely realistic hair.
