Re: Interesting render engine, silly topic
Quote: The render engine used however is quite a clever bit of coding and modeling. It's quite capable of generating some truly stunning results. (If you have enough time on a render farm to spit out results.
My understanding was that the Nvidia demo of the Moon landing was done in real time on a pair of GTX 980's not a render farm.
Watch the video and really look at the part where they pan the camera away from the L.E.M. camera view (with the bright light at the base of the ladder) to see that that light was from the sun bouncing off of Armstrong's space suit.
Demo was way cool.
