The possibilities are mind boggling... the effects? entrancing!

I wonder if Charles Csuri is alive today? Wikipedia doesn't list him as dead... Wonder what he thinks of his showreel in 2011

For 1982, this is pretty awesome, to be honest. Raytracing renderers existed, but were few and far between. DKBTrace didn't even exist then (predecessor to POVRAY).

Considering that this was a few years before we even got a Vic-20 this is quite impressive.

Really didn't think there was any 3D back then.

Terribly boring signature.

I have Jim Blinns notebooks where he talks about writing the renderer for this animation.

He did some really cunning stuff to get it to render back in the day where most computers didn't even have enough memory to store a single rendered frame. He dealt with floating point precision issues in creative ways as well. The scale of things for this type of animation is not trivial to deal with even today.
