And for anyone who still thinks we're joking, take a look at the ceilings in Star Trek TNG. Does that look like a Lightwave/Toaster generated object, mixed real-time with the video? Oh, so it is... Can you do that on a PC NOW? Oh, no you can't.
Really? Well, perhaps you ought to tell the BBC they can't do it on their National news broadcasts. Gosh, they'll be so disappointed... they thought that it was 60% computer generated.
