Video demonstrating basic intro to DX9 HLSL shaders using VB.NET. This video walks you through everything from start to finish, creating a VB.NET app, writing the Managed DX9 code to render a mesh, as well as writing a simple HLSL shader program from start to finish by hand. The video runs about 49 minutes. I kept the technical stuff to a minimum, this video is just intended to introduce you to shader programming and how to go about getting started using them. It is not intended to be a detailed analisis of the process.
