Mmmmm… 25 years of shiny balls

I remember back in the early days of 3D on the Mac – fumbling through True Space and Electric Image – and being happy when I made a shiny sphere. Nice to see the shiny sphere is still kicking ass. Check out this sweet video made by Maxon celebrating 25 years of their Cnema 4D software being on the Mac platform.

    25 years ago, there was shiny… and then there was even more shiny. Are those balls shaded using Phong, Blinn or Gouraud shading algorithms? Those coders were like rock stars… rode on a SIGGRAPH bus next to Jim Blinn once, and got to shake Henri Gouraud’s hand.
