Ah,fully recovered now and back to writing new stuff. This Revision was top cool, inspiring and lots of other positive things. I now doubt hard,if this actually was my last one - damn, I almost sound like Elude now :D. Top demo by Elude btw....imo the most "complete" one you've made.

My own intro was very weird this time,but I had lots of fun to make it and it gave me motivation to throw myself at new stuff now. I had planned to do a grand release, but inspiration left me and it was time to something different. It was more a production suitable for whacky Trsac ,but it was too far away and I wanted to release something.

Not sure there will be more releases the next couple of months,but there WILL be more :)

TBL released final version of Rift which is really much improved.

Maybe it is OT, but as a 3D guy I still dont understand how TBL did the sculpture object? Everytime I watch the demo I carefully watch that scene and object asking myself how this is possible? Just dont tell me it is animation ;o)

Funny,actually. Today I also wondered if it was an animation. The level of detail seems extreme and so does the speed. However,emoon is damn skilled,so I can't rule out anything. But the speed of the sculpture compared to the more simple objects is still equally fast or even faster. Goodlooking stuff no matter what it is.

It's not an animation :)

The sculpture is about 1100 triangles and it's running and the scene is running at 25 fps (2 frames on 060/50 Blizzard) what gives it the detail is that the texture map is 1024 x 1024 in res with as far as I know something that people haven't done before. I also have a full mipmap chain for the texture in order to improve cache performance (and it also looks better) when it's zooming away.

The scene is running in 320 x 200 and 8 biplanes where the lower 128 colors are used for the base texture of the statue and the upper 128 is used for the background color.

I of course precalc some stuff to make it run faster but it's still texture-mapped triangles being rendered.

My guess would be that all the vertex transformations, triangle sorting and triangle setup constants are precalculated and stored as a compressed stream. The demo would then basically just have to decode the stream commands and render 2d triangles..

Vertex transforms and triangle setup is all real-time

Jamie2010: did you do the optimisations on the framerates ? :)
Easter is early this year :)

Sorry to bump this old thread.. But i just need to know... ;)

jamie2010:
It's a shame but our demo is really to slow to be released, some effects was rewritten but it will be not enough to have a correct framerate, i need to spend more time on optimizations:(



@Jamie: hope you can find some time to optimize this demo and release it for example next year at Revision.
This demo should never ever for all eternity stay hidden in the Skarla vault ;)
