Autodesk Sneak Preview Release, Nitrous Accelerated Graphics Core

Autodesk Sneak Preview Release: This video shows current research related to the Nitrous accelerated graphics core. The goal is to shorten the iteration process and allow art directors and animators to crank out quick but nice looking animation previews with soft shadows, depth of field, transparency and indirect lighting. This particular Clip of 177 frames at 30fps, took 2 minutes to create using the Nitrous Realistic Display mode. Comparable Software render times of the same animation took close to 7 minutes to render with comparable looking quality.

MACHINE SPECS: I used an ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series which has 1GB of Dedicated Graphics Memory, and my machine specs are 64Bit Dell Studio XPS 8100, i7 CPU 860 @2.80GHz 2.80GHz, with 8GB of RAM
