    RenderMonkey: an effective environment for shader prototyping and development



    We present a new process for real-time shader development using an improved environment for shader content creation—the RenderMonkey IDE. This environment enables anyone with an interest in real-time graphics to quickly embrace programmable shaders for projects from game engines to scientific visualization or anything in between. The RenderMonkey IDE is a general tool for effective shader development, allowing collaboration between artists and programmers in a single, unified environment. We will present the design philosophy behind the RenderMonkey IDE, the process for shader development, and new methodologies for integrating RenderMonkey into pre-existing production pipelines.
