More likely an image simply super-imposed (well, sub-imposed) on the background.

The picture is made in RayTracing...
But Now3D is real-time too.

I do (almost) everything by myself!

The background are photos. ;(

Xcuse me but my english is very bad and I don't understand your post! ;(
What do you intend for "Maybe this is that code *working*." ?

He means maybe the shot was produced using the lightwave scene support code.

Nice shot btw :)

Thanks n! =)

No. I don't use the lightwave scene support code.

i think that almost every 3D Coder uses scenes and objects taken by the net. So, i don't understand why you have to dubitate about the origin of this image. We are interested in the engine, isn't it?

Maybe Giuliano doesn't have more experience in writing english,
but i really doubitate about his malicious purposes. I downloaded Now3D and works fine, no trojan was found! ... He makes a really good job using VB.
Anyway, if you have probz reading italian language, you can click on the "English Version" Flag or going directly to this link:
English Version

We are there to learn and to make more experience, and not to damage the other users of this beautyful site.

Giuliano, nice image though.. don't stop working with it! ;)

Guys, I'm glad that at least now it's being treated as a joke.
How do you actually do collisions? Not n^2 particle against particle right?

Oh I get it... Your comments are like those two old guys at the end of every Muppet Show(r) that sit up in the box seats and say, "That show was rubbish..."

Did anyone like those old guys? Anyone.... hhmm... anyone? No didn't think so.
