Tipsy Trounces Tootle

Friday, April 11th, 2008

A bit more than a year ago I found ATI Tootle, an interesting mesh preprocessing tool for simultaneous vertex cache AND overdraw optimization. Somebody wisely commented then that “there’s probably something that is 1000x faster and 99% as good”. Well, that thing is here today and it’s bearing the equaly ridiculous name Tipsy. I won’t get around to actually implementing it, just as I didn’t with Tootle, but I sincerely hope the fine purveyors of the relevant middleware we use will find the time.
