ARTtech seminar: Jere Sanisalo: Modern GPU particle systems in Alienation (PS4
Particle systems are used to create great visual effects in most modern games. GPU compute based solutions offer a lot more power than the previous CPU based efforts. This talk focuses on the particle system created for the Alienation game (PS4, 2016, Sony Interactive Entertainment). The focus is on the technical aspects of the system and how almost all of the work was moved to GPU while actually making the system a lot more flexible and scalable.
