A raytraced image on an amiga A500? With at most 1 meg of ram and only able to run the integer version of Imagine? Pardon my scepticism but I dont believe it.

 Re:
the models were done on my A500 with a cut out cover to fit an accellerator board with extra ram. That I know for sure, but you make me rethinking about the render though. The amiga HD is dead for a long time now but i managed to safe a lot files before it died. However with transferring to my win pc the original timestamp of the files were messed up. When I crossed over to PC I start rendering old Ifa projects on a pentium 90. Later on I kopied the HD and all my syquest disks to a external HD and again messed up timestamps of the files with batch transferring.
I never knew what you mentioned about not able to raytrace and that left me wondering wich imagery in my repository was actually raytraced on my 500. There is one image that is engraved in my memory because it took ages to render and post processing in Adpro on my amiga... see attached link to it..Open in new window
As growing in age I can not really remember all the fine details from the beginning days but thanx anyway for pointing out the facts that is completing my hobby and interest concerning imagine3d,

 Re:
ahh cool, those accell boards were good back then.I had an A1200 with a plugin 030 cpu and 16 meg ram. It seemed really fast at 3d work until i tried Imagine for windows on a PC.It was only a 200mhz K6 cpu but for rendering it blew any Amiga hardware out of the water .
These days its Blender all the way for me . Imagine just does not cut it anymore.

 Re:
its just sentimental framing, playing with imagine, it is even a kind of masochism. Same for Amiga, When digging into my repository i see images made in 1996. At that time I had a "big fat" IBM 386 XT?
of course with imagine blowing a way folks at the office..
with the P90 serious rendering on the Amiga was out of the question. Although for Desktop publishing and video editing it was unsurpased and competing with the 100K $ systems...As I said...all sentiment but I still get surprised what kan be done with Imagine..BTW, Blender is bizare and realy nice output and awsome dynamics..but I stil can ot get trough the steep learning of getting away with its interface..

 Re:
I have the same feeling about Blender, I just can't seem to master it enough to get reasonable output. Then again I had the same experience with Imagine (on Amiga) in the early days...until one day it just "clicked" for me...but I'm still not a master lol! Always something new to learn with this amazing software.

 Re:
well it takes a lot of work to get good output from Imagine-having to fake IBL ,crappy anti-aliasing ,no uv mapping etc. Getting good output from Blender is trivial,everything is there. The interface is different/difficult to learn but not impossible. I managed to get over the wall and the view is fantastic.

 Re:
You are right, imagne cant compete anymore with the standards of today. Blender is awesome and has a vibrant userbase and the team developers is pushing the limits even further (EEVEE!)
just like Vue Xtream wich is also one of my favorite software to work with because of the intuitive editors and suburb output.. But for some reason I keep on teasing my nerves with imagine because theres still much I does not master. Besides all the features it is not the software that limits our imagination and even a prehistoric program like MS paint can be a powerfull tool to create great and emotional communicating imagery...high end does not per se means high impact..

 Re:
I quite like Blender myself... it does takes some getting used to, but it's quite versatile when you get past the dynamic interface

having to select something before you get the actual menu for it is a hassle at times :)
But it does provide for a lot of options being available in a small viewing area
