That looks gorgeous. I would love to try it for a little project, but your wiki seems to be empty and I don't see examples, and I'm afraid to know too little about OpenGL to try it alone.
Maybe could you add examples from your screenshots ? They looks really nice and I would definitely love to alter them. Adding documentation in your wiki should help too.

Isn't the name choice a bit unfortunate and hard to google/generic? D3D is what (most gamedev) people call Direct3D from DirectX. Even the headers for 9 were d3d9.h

@IngloriousTom: Examples and tutorials will come! If you cannot wait though, I can walk you through how to use it on Skype if you want to (PM me!)

@FRex: Yeah I know, I was struggling choosing a name  ::) The engine is unique in how it defers updates and then does them all in parallel, and also has a heavy focus on deferred shading, so I called it "Deferred 3D". Perhaps I will rename it at some point  ;)
Have you heard about the new Cray super computer?  It’s so fast, it executes an infinite loop in 6 seconds.

Wow! Your renderer looks like it can be quite beautiful! Excellent work  :)

I already had real-time ray traced global illumination, but I recently also added a lighter option, something I call SSRGI (screen space reflections and global illumination). It's much faster than the full blown technique, but not quite as pretty. But overall I think it still looks quite nice. Here is an example of ambient vs SSRGI:

SSRGI on:



SSRGI off (ambient only):

Amazing work!
Here's hoping my deferred renderer will eventually be this good.

Anyway, I noticed (going through your source code) that your using glBlitFramebuffer for your final output, have you tried rendering out using a simple quad to improve performance. I had a significant gain of FPS by using a fullscreen quad instead. Hope that helps anyway.
