View Full Version : polycount for portfolio

03 March 2002, 11:13 PM
ok, i was thinking of making a whole bunch of low poly characetrs for my demo reel. i wanted to have all the games in quake 3 so you can see them actually walk around. does it matter if the polycount is like 3-5000? because it won't be online i just want to make a level, have like 8 models walking around. i have a pretty strong system with a geforce4 card. will it be slow, or will it work as long as its not online?

Well, I don't really know... but I don't think it matters as long as you have a computer that can handle it... I wouldn't try using the models while playing online though :)

How are you planning to record it? With the demo function?

i was planning on recording on beta and vhs. and to put some stuff on a webpage and interactive business card cd's. i want to capture some actual gameplay footage but i just want to show the individual characters and their animations by themselves
