Day69 RT physics fun

Looked at some intersting vids on the Autodesk site pointed out by Russell. When I first looked at the new Maya it didnt seem to be this nifty - perhaps it is just getting this far...

Blimey, Alan Wake looks awesome - not just the static environment, but layered atop that the cinematics, weather, effects and physics look like elevating the emersion up another notch.

super nifty stuff!

DX10 demo stuff also quite amazing - the nice volumetric lighting and water effects - sweeet.
