Providing a powerful new tool for developers everywhere, Crytek today announced the arrival of Renderdoc; a graphics debugger available to download for free.
Renderdoc is a standalone program that can be used to capture and replay frames from any Windows application using Direct3D 11.0 or 11.1, and provides tools for deep analysis and graphics inspection, as well as detailed examination of API usage - allowing developers to locate bugs and problems in their programs.
Developed by Crytek, Renderdoc has been built from the ground up to reflect the real needs of graphics programmers, and has evolved based on its day-to-day usage in the creation of CRYENGINE titles.
Plans are in place to increase Renderdoc's functionality over time, adding support for other platforms and APIs such as OpenGL. To contribute to the community and drive the future direction of the tool's development, join the discussion about Renderdoc at http://www.crydev.net/renderdoc.
