GR - "Enlighten, a next-generation lighting engine for the PlayStation 4, has been showcased in a stunning technology demo."
It's impressive how the lighting brings life to those ruins, which is ironic when I think about it. Anyway, beautiful video (probably thanks to the music too).
Ive seen much of this in the current gen, but what did catch my eye was the flickering of the light once the torch was lit up.
It's about light and shadows, the way they move, shine, and light merge into darkness on the objects, really close to reality and real time difference of day and night. Interesting.
It looks like they're using Unreal but added their own lighting system.
@ wraith it says it uses the unreal engine in the video... derp
Not to burst anyone's bubble but Enlighten is already in use today by current consoles. In fact the lighting system for BF3 uses the Enlighten Engine...
@papashango That doesn't burst anyone's bubble because this isn't running on PS3. This level of nuance and detail isn't on PS3. I can't wait to see what the PS4 brings us. The worlds we'll run around in, the things we'll see. It's gonna be fun.
Here's some advanced lighting from the WiiU.. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's pretty but needs more guns.
I believe he was joking...
lol and a sword
It needs dudes walking away from an explosion without reacting to it or looking back.
This is about the same as GoW level of graphic detail. The lighting effects in this are way better. I think there might be more detailed textures but they look the same as current gen from a distance. We would really be able to tell a major difference in texture once we can zoom in and look at a few inches on the screen. In MGS4, it looks great but as soon as you zoom in, the pixels really show.
That looks better than what is seen in god of war, dude. I know god of war is an amazing looking game, but you need to get your eyes checked.
Maybe, it's been over 3 or so years since I've touched GoW3. The graphics are a little fuzzy from memory and youtube vids don't really do it justice.
It's a demo for lighting, not textures...imo it looks amazing, especially when the canopy changes color and it affects the shadow it casts, very impressive
Hey people, this company only makes a lighting engine, not graphic engine. Here they are showcasing their new LIGHTING engine using Unreal Engine 3. It is like trying a wonderful new outfit or sunglasses on an ugly old woman. The outfit and glasses are always good but the old witch makes the whole look ugly. Use the same lighting engine on a next-gen engine like Unreal Engine 4 or better and you will see the difference. Btw Battlefield 3, GOW3, GOWA and The Last Of US use geomerics, so you are arguinf for nothing.
As i watch this i'm just imagining God of war 4 or any new project from Sony Santa Monica.
The flow of time in that lighting was realistic if that makes sense. The smoothness at which it changes is quite lifelike in that the transitions seem alive just in real life.
only on the PS4...its unbelievable.
Looks like part of a gears of war map pack. Not better than other demos I have seen before.
Cryengine3 has dynamic lighting but Crysis 3 uses Autodesk Beast. It's about using those middleware programs to make games have more realistic lighting, AI, etc.
imagine a FPS Metroid Prime game with those graphics!!,, Sony should have Retro Studies not Nintendo,,
I'm Enlightened by the ps4's capabilities :)
3 disagrees = 3 people is not enlightened by the PS4
Anyone remember this video?
Yeah the music does add to the vid I think but still impressive none the less, also that could pass for one of the biggest cod maps for ps4 (jus kidding).
The Music is Trainingsprogramm Hohe Stimmlage 24 By Andre Balhorn
Not trolling or anything but I don't see what's impressive about this video. It looks current gen to me. Says it uses Unreal Engine. This video from 2011 looks more impressive to me: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
It's more about lighting, Don't pay attention to other things .
thats what i been saying, why do people think this is a graphics demo when it clearly says LIGHTING tech Demo. -_____-
Well now that it's a lighting thing, this is awesome. superb lighting effects.
"why do people think this is a graphics demo when it clearly says LIGHTING tech Demo." Which is a huge part of "graphics". I'm sorry but what you just said made no sense at all. This IS a graphics demo. It demonstrates the real time calculation of lightning/shaders. There is no such thing as a "Lightning demo" that is different from a "graphics demo". It's a demo showing the graphical output of the lightning SYSTEM.
@ sidar dont know what a "lightning demo" is but... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Graphics Tech Demo https://www.youtube.com/wat... An Example of Lighting tech demo There is a difference :)
