I think you can significantly alter the playback performance if it's
done right. This will definitely affect game work, because you're not
going to be dealing with situations where it's just one model in the
FWIW, I was reading about some comments on the list about the PS1 ...
listing it as around 5k polys per second (??). You might be referring
to the sprite handling capabilities - which is closer to those
estimates (4k/s). I believe the maximum throughput is about 1.5
million flat-shaded polys / s, or somewhere around a half mil
textured/lit polys / s. And that's only what's in the view at the
current time, not what's contained in the world scene. I don't want
anyone thinking we'll ever reach that level in Flash (or even
remotely close). :) Plus, the PS1 had a geometry engine right on the
chip for transformations.
As for Quake ... I'm pretty sure that it is OpenGL optimized, which
utilizes the graphics card of the machine for a large amount of the
processing. An interesting read - http://www.bluesnews.com/abrash/
cheers all... and have a happy Papervision new year!
