Re: id Tech 6 preview
This isn't designed for characters, or moving animatable objects really, at least not yet, i'm not sure why they chose to use a character to demonstrate it.
Don't forget this is still cutting edge technology even if this demo was last year, in all likelyhood improvements have been made sinse then anyway.
What this technology shows is a perfect system for detail to increase for objects in the foreground and for detail to decrease for objects as they move away. It. Eliminates. LOD.
This basicly makes John Carmack a plenepotentiary for the future of real time graphics.
