  • New X-Plane 10 Video Released


    X-Pilot

    Laminar Research has released a new video showing off X-Plane 10's art assets.

    The new autogen is very impressive, and it's evident early on that X-Plane 10 is shaping up to be a huge update. Check out the video below (and don't mind the flying skills. Laminar says they'll have a new 747 prepared in no time to fix up the damage)!

    nice shadows, highway, but the fps was well below acceptable on the 747, I don't like too fast still non-cinematic camera movement. But for WIP it's a nice preview. Killing fsx-Prepare3D stuff;)) don't think so, not yet IMHO.

    Arti you are too picky, too early. I found the video incredible, for what it revealed. A really plausible skyline, and oh, the roads and houses, marvelous.

    Yes the fps was choppy and yes the camerawork was truly awful (me thinks it was Austin, engineers are like that, just the facts!). But I'm ecstatic he's able to show parts of the puzzle coming together already. Plenty of time to optimize. I didn't mind the camera work really, coz it showed what is happening. Ooh, just wait for a dusk scene with dynamic lighting!! I gotta calm down..

    Simon I know it's not yet fully optimized but if it's Austin video = 2x6core Xenon MacPro 5870. No I'm not complaining about the camera work, I know it's just a rough WIP sample but X-Plane doesn't have simple nice&slow smooth camera move at all (can you agree?). That's why we can't get a truly cinematic/dramatic camera dollys. But I'm happy to see the first official video preview!

    Arti, I use the mouse for slow camera movements, it can move very gradually except at extreme zooms. You can use pilot view to set up a Dolly for panning shots.

    I've watched that video 4 times now! It'll do me for now.
