"Ashima" Vertex Noise with Lighting and Texture (Composition by gtoledo3)
Per the conversation here: http://kineme.net/forum/DevelopingCompositions/Environmentmapsandvertexn...
I decided to put together an example over morning coffee.
This is a GLSL shader that "intercepts" the lighting position, diffuse, specular, and shininess, etc., and basically just sets up a Blinn-Phong model lighting using that info - so Lighting patch controls can be used as expected.
Then I added the popular "ashima arts" perlin noise implementation that's been kicking around that I've been seeing in the frag shaders, but placed in the vertex shader - so that there's some tweakable exposure (though I don't really recommend it) instead of just invoking the default noise function.
