[pcghx]Video shows ray traced Quake Wars

he video is supposed to originate from the GDC in February 2008, but wasn't released yet. In addition to known ray tracing scenes from the Quake 3 Engine and Quake 4 it shows a real-time rendering in Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. This scene is at the end of the video.
The water shows impressive reflections and refractions. In the water there are even reflections of an island and sunrays. The waves are improved by Bump Maps.
Raytracing looks so cool. Total reflection. Thats some amazing stuff .

watch this guy here.

Whilst ray tracing is very interesting, that video is not so much. The guy himself is a very impressive person (i wouldn't have known where to begin), but he's not very good at presenting. He's just talking to the camera, and its quite boring.

Wheres part 2?

I dont think this tech is very important to gaming but im sure its good for designers who need such precision lighting, but in a game id rather have a game that looks like Crysis then Quake with ray tracing

That is absolutely amazing. I tried ray tracing a few years back in 3d modeling and always found it rather slow. Intel is quickly becoming my favorite company, especially since it now owns Havok Physics.

I don't think the cryengine 2 supports ray-tracing from memory. Yep they have no plans to have ray-tracing in crysis

Cevat Yerli, Crytek: In our company, most of our developers do have experience with ray tracing, more as background knowledge though. We have not investigated enough or made a decision about ray tracing being an option, part or key to our strategy, so at this stage it's not a serious option
