3D Ribbon

3D Ribbon

A neverending ribbon twists its way through 3D space.

Based on the VertexNoise.qtz patch from the GLSL examples in the Dev Tools

Mad props go to Mr Monkeypresso for the idea. And of course to Philip Rideout of 3d Labs, Inc who wrote the GLSL code.

Contains GLSL code which is Copyright (c) 2005-2006: 3Dlabs, Inc.

Detailed Info: 


Speed: make the ribbon go slower or faster

Hue: change the colour on the fly
