Hey there,

Click the image for the article. Come back to comment.

Enjoyed the article on the engine very much. Very happy to see lighting moving to being fully dynamic . Two pages just doesn't seem enough for a very impressive engine with new tech, including volumetric particles.

Nice! This all runs at 60fps 1080p but using CryEngine to pre-render it at 4 times the scale, with pimped up lighting, FX, textures etc. ( and at lower framerates) you can get quite pretty damn close to average CG quality, at minimal render times.

It'd be great to get some inside view to other engines as well.

I just hope they can improve stability for projects on the engine. Talked to a guy who worked with CE3 in University and he said, that they had to settle over to UE3 because the Project kept on crashing and stuff. He also added, that CE3 feels sort of castrated from CE2 in some aspects. Still i just prefer the general look of CE to UE.

Lots more info here:

Looks like most of the article was straight from that doc.

What are we supposed to get out of the video? The compression is horrible.

It's a very beautiful engine, between this and the new Battlefield I kind of wonder why rendering complex scenes is such a headache in our softwares.

On a slight note I find it weird that Crytek pretends to have 'invented' screen-space ambient occlusion when it was clearly simply the first (one of the first?) game to implement it.

I wonder about this a lot too. Especially when I see UE and CE then look back at my mental ray rending...65%...65.6%...

One is raytracing one is a pure rasterizer written for specific hardware

I've been playing Crysis 2 for PC and it's pretty fun. Well, for the half hour I played. Nice physics in there. Pacing of the story is pretty nice too. There's a nice rhythm to the ebb and flow of plot points which keeps the action fun....but I don't like shooting games since Quake 3
