2:00:12zrizi Q: Off-topic: How do you index large meshes (index needs more than 16-bit)? Would you divide into multiple chunks (and have more draw calls) or increase bandwidth by using 32-bit for indices? Which approach is better for large meshes?

2:13:02zrizi Q: Off-topic (pre-multiplied alpha): I watched the episodes in which you presented it and I remember you mentioned that you prefer to defer multiplying by alpha "at the end". Can you explain what this means? Also, what's the benefit of pre-multiplied alpha, other than the fact that it's now a linear operation (if that's the case)? I can only see the value if you're compositing multiple transparent / translucent layers
