SO. This week I was tasked to look into a very difficult animation. This was the kind of animation that I dread even though I LOVE doing animations.
This animation was the kind that made me raise my eyebrow. The kind that made you wish you knew OpenGL. The kind that made you regret not looking into OpenGL when you had the chance a couple of years ago. The kind that made you kick yourself for being too lazy to learn it when you had the time.
That’s right. I had to somehow make an image ripple. Or a wave. Whatever. As long as it looked cool.
Of course, as is expected, no one knew OpenGL on my team. And worse still, I told people I could do it if given enough time. Way to dig yourself a hole, Hector.
So sure enough, I did what programmers do best. I did some stretches and prepared for some major Google-Fu.
