Default hi rez graphics

Yesterday some of us had a discussion about an ultra res graphics workstation card, well if your ever wanted to know what you can do with that kind of thing here you go:



Done with lots of cpu power as well using a technique called POV ray tracing,most of you are thinking, well, hell, anyone good at photoshop can do that, nope, its done by writing a script with the help of another program that then renders the image with lighting and other visual effects way beyond what you can do with a photo editor.

I saw the picture before reading the writing and thought it was real! :shocked:

Can you imagine? Some time in the future they will be standard computer game visuals

whats really cool is to watch a PC drawing it 1 layer/piece at a time, sometimes you can render them in real time, just depends on the POVraytracing software
