Re: Query: What would YOU want from a new Imagine?
Not too shy to talk
A new "Imagine" wouldn't be built from the same program, but with it's good qualities in a completely new software - with the need for a new name. We would most likely all be 3d "Imagineers", not programmers. Automated application creation is slowly becoming a reality. People who make game engines are slowly trying to remove the "coding" aspect.
Imagine's layout and functions are a masterpiece of form and functionality. Why would anyone still care about it. We aren't a cult. I can't use any other program exclusively without it. If I had the money (the true limitation), I'd hire a programmer and tell him to make Imagine, but throw in some new features, and make it render as fast as possible using the latest hardware and software (DirectX 10+, OpenGL, shaders, duel-cores, 3d cards, etc.).
The new features I'd like would be - better volumetrics (Fog, fire, clouds, dust), plasmas, arcs, water, physics, particles. I would be happy with nothing but faster render speed. There.
