I can't help to think that the very near future is realtime graphics, forget that rendering crap!

wow, great! I really like the actual unreal engine, the udk as well as the unreal game. Great to see that they are still improving it.

So, uh... Why are we still rendering?

Because what you are seeing is all triangles!

So if I just triple all my geometry, my renders will go this fast? :)

I feel so ashamed at thinking their Unreal 4 screenshots from a few weeks back were "meh."

The main assets from that video are the same ones from the screenshots but... wow, what a difference a little context can make!

Very cool. I liked the fact that the editor has a much better UI and can use C++.

Soooo... you create the assets elsewhere, then bring them into the editor for animation and rendering. Sounds vaguely familiar.

In all seriousness, I can envision "game" engines being used for movie-making and programs like LW, Maya, Max, etc. being used as model shops/rig setup tools. Heck, the new Crytek engine has a whole toolset dedicated to creating cinematics (as does Unreal engine I believe). Muvizu is built on the Unreal tech and it's for only doing animations. I'm surprised we haven't seen more people doing big-time oscar-nominated shorts and films with this stuff. Maybe we have?

Seen Square-Enix's new engine that they showed at E3?

I believe that was discussed in another thread. Looks good.

Pick's jaw up from ground, brushes it off, and gets back to work...
