An example of the strange ways in which search serendipity can (and often does) work…

Ahead of the release of Zbrush 2019, I was searching for “npr” 3d shader in: Google Search | ‘Last Month’.

On the second page of results, I discover the ‘moved and lost from JURN a year ago’ archive of the RAF’s Air Power journals.

A search for “npr” 3d shader has nothing to do with the British Royal Air Force. ‘NPR’ being non-photorealistic rendering with ‘3D’ computer models that have been fitted with ‘shader’ materials, to make them look like hand-drawn cartoons when they’re rendered into graphical form. The results were arising because the same keywords were shared.

Air Power et al will be back in JURN soon.
