Autodesk 3ds Max 2008 Demo Videos

Not sure if this has been posted already, but here goes the link anyway.

3ds Max 2008 demo clips

Seems to me that 3ds Max is moving towards being a architectural modeler or something. Hope I'm wrong, though.

In max 2008, the Review feature will be GPU based to preview shadows on the level shown in the demo, if I understand that correctly. So will there be a minimum GPU Ram OR bit (512 Mb-128-bit) that you'll need to have?
I just got a 8600GTS 512 mb-128-Bit card from EVGA, will that be enough, will I need to upgrade or is it too early to tell ?

Ohh man!! Don't tell me to upgrade... I'm holding tight to my old-loved X800.. I know I need to upgrade but I just bought Adobe Flash 1 month ago and I don't have the bucks to afford a new VGA... or PC...

But that's just the hardware/software industry way to make us fell "old"

Apparently to get anything other than GPU shadows you need shader model 3 capability on the card.

An 8600 should be OK - not sure about the x800.

Ahh I see thanks steve .Yeah I made sure that My card was dx 10 atleast 512 mb opengl 2.0 ,shader model 4 compatable :-) for like $ 200

The new subobject tool looks really nice, I miss that tool from my XSI past.... but for what I saw the XSI way of moving around subobject level was a bit more streamlined.

Now they should pay the guys from polyboost a big load of money and implement it directly into the Max code.
Polyboost is just sooo amazing.
