Finally, the first official Wurst product after 11 years. I wasn't involved, so I can give you my thumb.
Don't let Duck.3ds die!

until which version was it part of max? my first version was 5 and i didn´t find any duck until now ( version 9 ) ...and the teapot is NOT sexy...as the top cover is not closed at the boundarys, so you can look into the pot ! ( i made a 1.2k - thousands-of-teapots-fly-over-the-screen - screensaver for my own use ! so i see it all the time ! )

the prod is sexy :)
duck must be one of my oldest friends by now,haha !

it runs very fast on my craptop so I guess a smooth shaded version is possible?

The HQ is super smooth on my 2Ghz notebook in Opera 9.63

Still haven't digged through the code. How big are the data ?

auld: I'm absolutely convinced it's possible.

Cool, although not sure smooth shaded would be possible at decent framerate - I'm thinking you'd have to plot your own polygons instead of using paths for that.

Well done for Javascript. But: you are not being very ecologically friendly by burning CPU cycles on Javascript implementations of old effects. ;)
Therefore a piggy.

Thanks for the thumbs. :) Regarding p01's question: the normal version has 259 triangles, which compress to 1885 (there's room for improvement)

As most of the time is spend rotating the triangles, gouraud shading might be possible. I will try to hack together an improved version this week.
added on the 2009-01-12 21:56:00 by Joghurt Joghurt
Eh, one side has 259 triangles, so that's 518 triangles

fuck a duck.
rulezadded on the 2009-01-12 22:01:17 by Shockwave Shockwave
i'll wait for the utah teapot...
1885 bytes for 259 triangles doesn't sound too bad with the encoding issues of HTML.
added on the 2009-01-12 22:12:06 by p01 p01
don't forget to use triangle strips, which takes less data.

Top of the month, whaat? Must be a slow month..

duck.3ds in javascript using lzw packer trick with eval (that gasman used 3 years ago) and canvas to draw polys. So what's new in here?

From a purely technical point of view I agree with statikbuzz.

But technique ain't everything.

again, why on the earth has something which was wasn't impressive 15 years ago has more hype and thumbs than your average _real_ demo? do you people think at all?
added on the 2009-11-19 13:42:50 by blala blala
Probably because the duck model is a demoscene staple from the old days. "Pop culture" references in other forms of entertainment grow as the form ages, the demoscene is no different. The 3DS duck, raster bars, the Second Reality theme, these are our "Rosebud", our "Luke, I'm Your Father". Voting moves from your head to your heart. That yes you get the joke, the reference, and remember where you where when you first saw it with some nostalgia.
