I just have to blog about this … although there must be a million other things that I would like to blog about. (Where do people find the time?)
With the service release of .NET 3.5 (now in beta), you can program effects that will run on the GPU. This means all the coolness, none of the badness (slow performance).
Greg Schechter is running a series of blog posts to introduce people on how to create these effects.
Channel 9 also recently had a great video by David Teitlebaum covering some of the new graphics capabilities (including GPU rendered effects) with the soon-to-be-release .NET 3.5 SP1.
Here are some more posts on .NET 3.5 SP1:
I can’t wait to see the effects that are going to come out of the WPF community.
Very cool news indeed.
