Exclamation  2007-01 Thursday 11th, Two new screens.

Two new screens can be found at the Penumbra: Overture website media section. The screens are showing some dissection of an enemy as well as the view of a frozen lake.

Weird, and why are the photo's slightly blury, kinda hard to see but kinda fuzzy..
But interesting=]

Sometimes, if you look carefully at a wall for a few minutes, you'll realize you wasted some time.  It's true.

I think it's the Depth of Field effect.

it is (imo) the DOF effect, you can see the rock in the middle of the screen - it's pretty clear (may just be my eyes, tho)

Very nice, are the light-ray effects in the 2nd screen done using billboards or just transparent meshes?

Billboard is like a 2D image in 3D space. Remember the first early 3D games, how on some with grass or a bush, you could walk around it, but it wouldn't really be 3D, it is just like a 2D image of grass/bush that is constantly facing the camera. Great example is in Doom, those explosive barrels.

oooh, you mean sprites :p
i dont think that are sprites, maybe just volumetric light or a map hack (like in HL)

Just to clear things up. Both images have depth of field and the rays are billboards (axis aligned to be specific). Smile

And yeah, we like dof Tongue
