hi is anyone considering playing with this baby.

http://www.bunkspeed.com/hypershot/index.htm
i read somewhere that it was developed by Henrik Jensen who came up with the photon mapping algorithm(i could be totally off) but sounds kind of tempting:hey:

was wondering if the next fprime will be something like this

any thoughts? anyone?

"Bunkspeed hyperShot".

The site seems to lack any real information, though their main page has info on other software they've produced. But that name! :D I'm sorry, maybe I'll stop laughing once there are sample images and render times... :lol:

You can see the BunkSpeed images here:

From what I can tell it's a bit like http://www.artvps.com/

Pretty good images, and very fast.

I agree with the name though, reminds me of "money shot"!

Way too much marketspeak for me to take it seriously.

Way to crappy renders for me to take it seriously.
Well, if those things are real-time, I might be interested.

i did some more research and this is the guy
he has been developing many interesting things that are being adopted by the industry now days, so whatever algorithm he developed, there is a good chance it will be big!:)

ps i agree the renderings are a little too cg-esque(perhaps a misnomer nowdays) but perhaps it is lack of talent than anything else???
i wonder...

I just can't get over the name. I thought this was a spam thread to start with.

But they need to sack the marketing person who came up with the name!
