In every way but image quality, yes.
Yes - materials, textures, animation, lighting techniques
No - image quality, lighting quality
Good point.I would add geometry as well, even though Toy Story 1 models are rather simple, when it's supposed to be round it is round.
No, there is still plenty of shader aliasing and other issues, even at 4K. Toy Story has a perfectly stable image that we still haven't reached in real time.Unless you game at 4K and up.
In which case.
God of war 4 as of now has almost the same fidelity as Beowulf to me.
Well this thread hasn't started off very fairly, then. Are there any hi-res captures of the original, full quality Toy Story recording? I'd love for someone to post that; would probably make the whole thread a lot more fair.The original release of Toy Story was rendered at 1536x922 resolution in 1995, the Blu-rays and screenshots you posted are from a new render that was done for the 3D re-release in 2009.
I'll argue Super Mario 3D World and Mario Kart 8 is on par, even in IQ. But even then its really hard to beat an actual movie because of the details that go into making it.
I believe it has.
