Ok, but that's about it.

v3nom: there is nothing "impressive" about the "real-time fluids" in this one, sorry. :)

Quite different for a 4k and I enjoyed it. Maybe it's not the most technically impressive thing ever created, but who cares? It looks nice!

Lovely effect and lovely "clinical" ambience but also kind of uneventful.

Water looks good, nice sunset, but otherwise boring, uneventful, and the background is dull.

great fx! It looks spectacular when the sun is about halfway down. The music makes me think about how one can generate groaning and moaning in 4k. It would probably fit quite well to the track.
rulez added on the 2012-10-08 14:32:48 by loaderror loaderror
great
rulez added on the 2012-10-08 14:39:09 by wysiwtf wysiwtf
The music is so bad, I wonder if that was intended (=provoke some dirty thoughts like in loaderror's head). The awesome looking sundown-scene prevents me from thumbing it down.
added on the 2012-10-08 14:49:28 by chromag chromag
The water surface was superb - I think one of the more convincing water surfaces I've seen. I thought the colours underwater were too bright, but the awesomeness of the above water effect especially the sun and sunset more than made up for it.

And absolutely great work in 4KB! Love it.

pool is cool

Weak thumbs up because the rest, like the surroundings and the music really bring it down. Colors could be better too.

What most people said - the water is impressive, but the music is lackluster. Not that I'm much better in that regard though :)

Nice contemporary version of a very classic demoeffekt!

Effect is nice, with shadows and all, but everything except the water-effect sucks touching balls. Even if it's done in 4k.
The sunset detail saves this from a piggy. ;)

That is some _kickass_ music but kinda boring visuals... no... wait... the other way around :D. Seriously, though, the fluid dynamics and caustics are gorgeous :).

Beautiful rendering, but the ripples somehow look wrong - like there's just a single circular ripple from each splash. Still a very easy thumb for the rendering though :)

Caustics sometimes just look like circles, and other times are very convincing (when there's a lot of perturbation). A firstie?
Excellent work on physics, as usual!

A firstie?

archee has quite some releases, and those caustics are also nothing new - neither is the water surface "movement", see my first comment on this prod (comment #2).

Archee: how is the surface geometry of the water surface represented? Do you raytrace on the heightmap of the water surface or do you convert it into another representation (SDF?) before ray-tracing? Or is that just a plane and you only displace the plane direction?
And why is there no filtering on the caustics? A bit higher resolution would also not be a bad thing.

Nice water but ugly background...
rulez added on the 2012-11-06 13:05:47 by Hicks Hicks
Ripples look strange (what psonice said). Underwater camera was cool! For some reason, I was expecting some sort of discoball to show up at sundown :)
answering to las:
The water waves are a heightmap (I did full 3D water in another release). The water is rendered as 1024x512x2 triangles with raytracing (reflection and refraction part) starting from the water surface point. The background is raytraced first as a full screen quad outputting depth values too to cut the water polygons. The caustics filtering takes too much place, increasing the resolution of the lightmap of the pool or the resolution of the water would be too slow on the compo machine, which wasn't a strong one.
