TressFX trailer flamed so bad, removed from Youtube so as not to hurt Tomb Raider.

    Something tells me it got pulled for reasons aside form flaming. But I didn't catch the link before it got removed.

    Well, when you are on slow as molasses wireless network, downloading a game which is in the tens of gigs size is somewhat daunting, don't you think?:cry: I am curious to find out how well/badly my HD6990 handles TressFX.....

    It can still be quicker than waiting so and so days to go pick it up. But if your concern is hogging everyone's bandwidth or not being able to play games online, understandable.

    Great to see AMD have a leg up on NVIDIA! :laugh: That hair animation is pretty realistic.

    Nice to see proof that NVIDIA aren't the only ones who can do decent physics. And yes, I'm an NVIDIA user, so no fanboism from me. ;)

    Like others have said this is pretty much a first release of a new Tech/software. You can't expect it to be perfect right out of the gate. Its like a new windows version really most of the time it kinda sucks for the first little bit before it is out for a bit after it has had a few patches and fixes for things and stuff. I personally like this yes its not perfect and moven't isen't realistic but still the hair and animation of it its self is leaps and bounds ahead of any other game out there which is a big plus in my books

    TressFX isn't perfect, but after 20 minutes with it, I def like it. Also, Tomb Raider is awesome as fuck.

    There is just one massive flaw with it. Hair looks great. But then you look at the grass and the bushes on the ground and they all wiggle around in its typical gamingish way and by no mean in the same way as the hair. Youd expect wind to affect hair and grass, not just hair and ignore everything else. It just looks crappy. If anyone bothered they could at least apply the same effect to the nearby vegetation and leave the distant one in a pre-rendered way. Instead they didn't even bother. Bah.

    The trailer looks crappy. Playing the game in real time with Ultra preset graphics and 8x AA and tressfx enabled = fucking amazing.

    8x AA? That's not even an option in the menus. Max it goes to to 4x SSAA which is Super Sample AA, that causes FPS to tank about as much as TressFX.

    Forced through the driver control panel. I do the same for 99% of games otherwise the in game tweaks that new drivers give don't work.

    It would not make sense to work on ways to make her hair look more realistic, while in the same time give her unrealistically large breasts. Have you ever seen a woman doing something "athletic" in her life have DDDDD sized breasts?
    And of course she is animated and not a real woman. Stop getting stiffies from a bunch of pixels, mkay?

    It's just fine to bend realism in a game in selected ways.

    Just like the earlier nude patch, I'm awaiting the enlarged breasts patch for this latest Lara. :D

    Yeah but that goes against the "realistic hair" stuff.
