Far Cry and DX9

Synopsis: The original CryEngine already utilized a lot of the newly introduced features in DX9 to improve rendering performance and visual fidelity. This presentation sheds some light on what’s been used, how it’s been integrated and the gotchas found along the way. Specifically, it’ll cover SM 2.x/3.0, Shader Precaching, Geometry Instancing and HDR Rendering.
