NASA World Wind eye candy

Chris has added atmospheric light scattering to SVN, and boy it looks gorgeous, click on any of the thumbnails for a full size image, no opyrights so feel free to share them. I also got carried away and uploaded two videos to You tube, Himalayan sunrise and Himalayan sunset, enjoy. Oh I better mention this is very beta and Chris is still working out all the kinks.

  • that’s amazing looking…really, really cool.

    how much cpu time is that chewing up? (if any)

  • A hell of a lot at the moment, at times I’m getting 100% cpu usage on both my cores (pent D 3ghz) but Chris is intending to move a lot of it off the cpu to the gpu, his main problem is most of the online examples are for opengl and c++ not c# and directx, but he’s getting there :).
