Do You Think.....
« on: August 05, 2007, 10:46:43 AM »
Hey all

I've been doing a bit of research into the diffrences between engines like TG and Real Time Engines..and I was wondering

Dose anyone here think TG 2 will ever be able to support real time rendering ect?

Thanks

Well eventually I would think that the preview window would give greater detail but as for full render I don't think so. I say this because a lot of game engines use a combinations of a bunch of maps (normal maps, cavity maps, ect) and while terrigen may a one point be able to do this it seems the current priority is to work with shaders and funtions.
The world is round... so you have to use spherical projection.

Hmm... I think that we'll get real time rendering when TG is multithreaded and we have 48-core processors running at 5Ghz.
