I'm always looking for some new tech that flies under the radar. I've known about the Marmoset Engine (real time game engine) for quite some time but I always get busy and forget to give it a go. Well I finally loaded up my trusty real time cave troll last night. Wow. I'm pretty blown away at the quality. I've got 4k maps on character and 2k on the rest. I have HDR lighting, Sub surface Scattering, A color grade, 1 real time light, Light Bloom and depth of field all rendering in real time. Oh and it costs 50.00
It's like being hand washed by a beautiful woman, who is using a smaller beautiful woman as the wash cloth. Meanwhile, I cant even sort basic transparency in Maya's viewport.
