Beginning with an introduction to DirectX and Direct3D, you'll work your way through graphical interfaces, animation paths,advanced lighting and shadows,various surfacemapping techniques, and even sound. One topic is covered per chapter and end-of-chapter questions help you practice and reinforce your new skills.Whether you're a current gamedevelopment student or a professional developer, you'll find the information and techniques you need to gain a clear understanding of game programming with DirectX 10."--Publisher's website.
