Amiga Juggler real-time reimplementation?
 
Now that modern GPU hardware has reached the point where it can render ray-traced graphics in real-time, as opposed to the hours-per-frame on the old Amiga...

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in converting or recreating the original 3D models used in the original Amiga Juggler demo, and placing them into a real-time raytraced 3D engine. This would give the same raytraced effects as the original Amiga Juggler demo, but would also add the ability to walk around the scene in real time (with a choice of screen resolutions).

I thought this would be a fitting tribute to the Amiga platform, as well as the evolution in technology which the Amiga paved the way for.

Anyone else think this would be a good idea, once the requisite GPU hardware is mainstream?
(It may already be there...)

This is what you're thinking of?

Not bad, but could do with some emulated HAM fringing for that authentic look ;)

And is that only for AmigaOS4? Would be a cool demo to see on as many platforms as possible :D

I was always fascinated with Juggler demo and raytracing with Amiga.
I found this article which may be interesting to some (Juggler history). Looks like even Commodore did not believe it was done on Amiga. http://marisonreadings.blogspot.com/...aytracing.html

An extended version made a few years ago for MSDOS: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=1914 (Juggler_Fakemode.com with port 330 work in Windows XP).

Hi!

I made this

everything on GPU, source code included :D
I had a lot of fun in making it.. Amiga rulez!
