Interesting footage

Post by jbikker » Wed Jul 18, 2012 5:57 pm

Some images of this video popped up, then it was private, but I found a working version:

Any idea what is going on in this video?

Same guy who made the very famous GTA mods.
He claims to work for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OTOY

Wiki claims that OTOY has something to do with Brigade?

I would hazard a guess at simple raytraced reflection / refraction / single shadow ray per light source. Bloom and 'DoF' as a post-process. Seemingly nothing that would introduce variance (true DoF, glossy metal etc.). Still looks reasonable if it is real-time 1080p, just probably not real-world photorealistic.

It looks like the guy that put the original video up was involved with game mods that involve putting shiny cars in to games.

@Jacco, you'll learn all the details behind this video next week ;)

Ah I feel silly now. OTOY is a company I heard good things about.

the watch slowly rotating at the end with all the diamonds in the sky (*singing lucy in the skyyyyhh ...*), the watch does not seem to have the diamonds in it's reflection. maybe i saw that wrong?

judging from the demo and the rendering speed, i'd say that its 90% raster and 10% "clever" ray tracing, i.e. only casting rays into the envmap and the ground plane (some lines of code, so super-fast), -maybe- even something within the gem that was hit to get some of the refraction effects (maybe plain brute-force, after all its just a bunch of triangles per gem) or just some clever fake (human eye is easy to trick when it comes to refraction)..
but still, awesome techdemo!

Without the gems reflecting each other, I wouldn't call that ray-tracing... But otherwise it looks very nice.
