Shadows,Stencil and Blending in openGL


  • Shadows are recalculated each time the sun moves.

  • Stencil is the effect of the shadows not going further than the surface limits.

  • Blending is making those shadows transparent (the shadow color "blend" with those of the surface on which they're casted).

    • The remaining problem is the flattening of the poker table so the shadow is perfectly mapped. Being curved its surface doesn't help. Also there's some nasty z-fighting issue I need to take care of later.
