I don't understand why the resolution has to be so low (renders pretty quick here), but niiiiice nonetheless.

The resolution is not low.
The camera objective is focused to a short distance and anything very far in the background is blurred due to depth of field. I learned I should have used a smaller objective (pupil ?)
added on the 2008-08-16 20:14:24 by archee archee
your depth of field produces big, discernibly rectanglish pixels? fix the algorithm please then :)

I'm not a fan of the procedural graphics genre, but you must have some serious coding skills to do that.
added on the 2008-08-16 23:33:53 by Wade Wade
Do those X formed highlights come naturally from the algorithm? (daft question, a better one might be : what effects make up the image?)

i'm going to believe the screenshot, as the file refuses to work here. more, more, young lad!
add some music and sumo-wrestling muffineers to that, in order to win the next 4k-intro compo :D

The blocky pixels are bugs:( I will fix when I release a ray tracer again. More screenshots from the same program: http://www.gravitysensation.com/photonrace/

yeah yeeeah, very very nice. More!

I also wonder how you made the cross-shaped glow.

(btw, it doesn't work on my 8600 desktop)

sure, it's fucking awesome coder porn. but the setup is just too unimaginative for me - even 3 minutes of attention to composition/colours/etcetera could've made this a lot better, i think. nevertheless, thumb for the cool tracer.

hello archee ! hyper impressive imo. !!! HEY GUYS this isnt just a pic archee did here ! i saw him flying around in the whole scene in realtime !!! at buenzli. im no coder but you told me that you have left 200 bytes !? if theres enough space for some softsynthesis you should release some of that stuff for a realtime 4k production. cu ollie
