comment Can I get enough experience to get an industry job just by reading books?
+1 for "they're quite awful places to work at if you want to make games"; just my opinion but I think it would be far more interesting working in an indie team where you get a greater variation in the tasks you will do, than be a little cog in a giant team. I would imagine that saying "I designed the Normandy for Mass Effect" would be pretty awesome, but the more realistic quote would be "I textured that little screen you see in locations XYZ and ABC..."

comment I can't figure out how to animate my loaded model with Assimp
Could you explain a bit better whether you want help extracting the animation from the Assimp graph or actually implementing animation. Assimp animations are stored as transforms for nodes (which can be anything - including bones) in the Animations array (scene/model level). They are straightforward to extract, but its not 100% clear if that is actually what you are asking :)

Thanks for your answer, I think I will now go reread that introduction to vector maths after this mistake!

Thank you, this makes a lot of sense as to why a 'complete' transform between the coordinate systems is needed.

comment Determine the stride of a DirectX Texture2D line?
This is for updating the content of textures where the stride is not equivalent (due to the size) to the TextureWidth * TexelSize, so RowPitch is what I need - Thank you!

comment Why can I not map a dynamic texture in D3D?
Thank you for your answer, I understand now. I made a mistake in my original question, but it applies entirely still. I will use an intermediate buffer and CopySubresourceRegion() to update my texture, as I assume that since the GPU will process these calls 'serially' the race condition no longer applies?
