not an image but a test in doing realtime walkthroughs in tS7.6.


a quick camtasia screen record can be seen here (http://parva-project.de/stuff/w19.wmv)


models are manually downscaled (aka hand made :D)

to a suitable realtime resolution.

Whole scene has 45k vertices and covers all necessary objects (except detail stuff like flower/vase and so on).


I used lightmap in combination with diffuse/detail maps,

that has the advantage of increasing the texture quality by reduced texture size,

and the user can change the color & texture of the object in a second.

Of course color bleeding isn't possible this way.


In this version I baked the shadowing of all objects instead of doing the room and objects separatly.

The advantage is a much better shadow casting

from the objects to the environment but you can't displace the objects of course.


Scene size is 28MB thanks to the DDS texture storing


here are some screen captures

(no color corrections except a little brighten up in the last one)

18878


thanks for watching

Marcel im trying what you wrote in the email......

I think I wont be getting that stunning results but i´m open for learning.

I wish Caligari would implement a render Gi to material in the TS8

version that would greatly enhance the possibilities...

It is a very useful method to satisfy its customers. I don't use real time with TS as a professional because i can't export my job. TS real time become more attractive for professionals with a plugin to create a .exe files with data and render engine to share their work without the need for anything. :)

It is frustrating to make real time and not be able to share as easily as a picture. But i can imagine how your work is nice!

That was my dream as Caligari licensed the Vray engine.

Imagine you built a scene, (auto)unwrap your models and vray bakes the GI lighting information into your objects. Not in realtime but you could see the computation directly at your objects instead at a plane uv mapper.


Now it don't has to be Vray which is nice for renderings but for texture baking it isn't really that smart.

Yes, an output to a standalone exe would be definitivly a huge step in making it open for the public. Currently these are just tests and doodles but they are done quickly and wouldn't need any high extra costs.


I tried Quest3D and Esperient. None of them has the ease of use and direct manipulation (let a user paint a wall he wants to paint with a custom material - in tS not a problem).

Thats why I wasnt unhappy about the aquisition of Caligari by Microsoft...

but we need the next step .... a future trueplay integrated into Windows....;)

I thought a world standard web 3d. What you see on the workspace is what you get for internet inside Internet Explorer, Firefox and other navigator. With real time, interactivity, link, video ,...in ten years :)

but competition slows the emergence of a standard for all. Large company do not like to share unless they are forced to do to survive. :o

That is why they bought the know-how of peoples who thought before them visions of the future.

It work well with VLC.

There should be a real time sound in the workspace. hear a fountain in the background become noisier getting closer, have echoed by entering a room (door grince), hear for the birds leaving the house or hear the tv in the lounge...

Brilliant work! There's nothing quite like being able to walk around a scene in FP mode. Nice smooth motion too. Once again you show just how versatile the real time stuff is.
