Lock if old. I couldn’t find a post for it.
This was an awesome read. My favorite portions:
Several studios are considering adopting Cycles
Blender is the first app to implement gpu opensubdiv (is this true? I know that Maya defintely has implemented Opensubdiv. Is it not GPU accelerated?)
The Blender devs were given a lengthy demo of Presto. (DEVS! TAKE THE BEST PARTS OF PRESTO AND PUT IT IN BLENDER!! OMG!) Sorry, fanboy moment.
Oh, and I REALLY want to see that Opensubdiv demo they were showing at SIGGRAPH, too! Discuss!
