Lionhead's new sculpting tool can render "billions" of polygons
this vid is old and has been posted before
Looks to me it's similar to the id tech 5 engine Rage is using, as far as the Mega texturing goes...
I hope this tech demo doesn't end like the "mere tech demo" Milo and Kate. It sure looks nice. Lighting is incredible.
I'm not sure what their trick is, but if you go to the boat (about 1:17), the back section in red is very angular and the red seems to be a tarp of some sort. It made me wonder why there are no cloth effects. Is it possible to render any cloth physics (or physics of ANY kind) using their technique? Secondly, is their mesh technique possible on other platforms, like the PC? Why haven't we seen something like this with the PC? Something just doesn't seem right, so I'm holding my reaction for some game footage using this technique. Finally, how is this a Milo and Kate demo? I didn't see Milo anywhere. Though I could see how this would work for that type of "game".
That's an amazing looking tech demo on 360.
Agreed! Lets just hope they can pull something off like the Milo tech demo! It would sell like hot cakes lol.
I'm a pedophile and I approve SignifiedSix's comment /s We don't need Milo, we need games!
you think PS3 users want to interact with little boys? lol jk but seriously, you think PS3 users are jealous about this "new and exciting" technology that the PS3 doesn't have? it's sad for sure. you think they're saying to themselves,"Yeah, but we got all the good games..blahblahblah blah blah blah." pity the fools who think that. this technology doesn't make the 360 better. it CLEARLY means the 360 needs new gidgets and gadgets to survive against the PS3 which is meant to last this generation from 9-10 years.
seems to me your spending too much time thinking about what other people may think. it's a nice tech demo. get over it.
not other people. just that jackass. he shouldn't worry about the disagrees. doesnt everybody know that the "agree/disagree" function is there solely to let people know there are "fanboys" around? Who cares, no one was saying anything anyway. they have lives, i dont and neither does signifiedsix. i cant get over it, this is my life, wise man who makes great observations. yippee-ki-yay never did i knock on how clean the visuals are, or say such a gadget won't do any good. that tech demo is for you, Mr. TeaRunner and pedophiles alike who call it a "nice" tech demo. tech demos are superficial, dude. thank you, have a good morning jog. the kids are on spring break over here so there shouldn't be any waiting around at bus stops to snatch one that looks just like Milo. just giving the heads up so you don't waste all of your time.
The setting is gorgeous.
I agree, but as there is absolutely no interaction or physics, as far as I can see, games will not look nearly as good as this demo does. But again, it looks incredible and I can't wait til games look like this :)
I think the artistic design is fine, but I don't see anything technically awe inspiring. Especially considering it's a static world demo. ***The water was moving and interacting with the pier .... so wasn't static. *** It's static since the action is a pre-programmed action and not a reflection of real-world physics, meaning external interaction. There is no wind, otherwise the plants would also move, but they don't. And the water's ripple effect was as if something has been dropped in the water, not in a wave effect you'd see from the wind. Even the lighting is static considering that nothing affects it. There is absolutely no external element to each item, only the static programmed visual elements.
Ye precisely my point^^
I think it looks a little claymation-like, and before anyone hates on me, I just want to say I think that is very cool. It's British and has that Wallace and Gromit feel that is very intriging. I would love to see something 3D like that had the stop motion animation feel to it.
The water was moving and interacting with the pier .... so wasn't static. Videos was here 100 times haha but still amazing and potential for xbox with this engine and its games will be great.
Well, yeah the artstyle was what I meant. I love the cartoony feel, and the tranquil, child-friendly gardens. Feels very calm I think it looks good technically too. At least, there isn't anything wrong with it.
I didn't mean to say that it wasn't nice looking, but that would be about all I could say for it. It showed nothing other than you can make a nice looking environment in the engine, but that doesn't mean anything other than the ability to make nice movies if you can't implement physics, global lighting, and dynamic particle effects. If you've ever seen a few of the Crytek demos, they also looked great. But, more importantly they showed off the physics and AI capabilities with the engine combined with fully realized lighting systems. IMHO, any demo intending to market a game engine needs to include more than just static environments. Even the Crytek demos I've mentioned don't represent actual in-game graphics since the game becomes a balance of limited hardware combined with graphics and gameplay, but they at least give you a better idea of what one would expect in a fully released game compared to a demo that is the digital equivalent to a still life painting.
i really dont see what you guys see here, this dont look impressive at all..
To each his/her own, i guess.
how is it the milo and kate demo when all they did was show off the engine and what it can do with the setting
Looking nice, just like the last 5 times it's been posted. Clever tech all the same.
is it me or this video posted like 100 times ? it looks really nice btw ... hope to see real 3D vegetation someday
I wonder how they are going to implement this in the current 360 if at all?
Didn't they show that it wasn't even running on the 360 and it was fake? Anyways the last thing I want to do alone in my house is talk to a little boy..... What would make it worst if they game had MJ music playing while you talk to the little boy. To anyone that couldn't take a MJ joke F.O. I love his music but I don't see any problem making a joke about him to.
Standard 360 hardware, 720p @ 30FPS. Your trying to hard bro.
Not gonna lie, that looks pretty nice.
I was expecting Pr0n...Kate and Milo....Demo. :)
Can it render realistic Scout leaders and Catholic Priests though?
That's not how it works, but this costumes will come bundled with the collector's edition, as well as a King of Pop white glove one. They'll need to update the skeletal recognition software to non bony parts but it will be the first time Kinect will have a easier time tracking black guys than white ones. I would add a jew and a hillbilly jokes if I remembered one just to make sure to be an ass to everyone instead of just prejudicial to one minority alone, but I'm short of coins now.
same old crap... how many dupes gonna get approved about this? http://n4g.com/news/724178/...
you so crazy. where's the real games though?
the milo demo turned out to be fake, so i wouldn't be suprised if this was fake too http://www.youtube.com/watc...
"stunning" must be the most over used word in the gaming media.
Looks very good but now we need to see it being put into some games maybe a new black and white for kinect with graphics like that would be amazimg. Fingers crosses for e3.
looks great. love that when you zoom in close, that the textures STILL look decent. Killzone 3, uncharted, and Halo: Reach have sort of minute detailing. I was impressed, but not overwhelmed by the video, I like the whole "frozen in time" sort of zoom-around, but as an engine, I would of much rather liked to see variation in the environment, and maybe an actual NPC or something to show off how an engine can render humans. It's amazing that I can count on my hand games that have non-plastic looking humans...
