High-Res Project Morpheus GDC-2015 Tech Demo Screenshots

Here's all the 3- and 4K screenshots I could find of the GDC Tech Demos from last month. Texture resolution's mixed on the two opposite extremes in the Bedroom Robot demo and the Heist-Interrogation/character faces are pretty rough, but otherwise each scene looks quite detailed and pleasing.

The 120fps Magic Controller demo's actually my favourite, very polished looking.

4k images. NICE

edit: there is some resolution weirdness going on in the foreground of that shooter image. Some elements look like 720ßp upsacled stuff imposed over the final render.

Why are these shots in such a high resolution? How much has been toyed around with these shots?

Looks similar to the realtime light bounce in The Last of Us.

I doubt it would be using some real time GI stuff in a VR demo. But even then, that is not what I was talking about.
I mean this:


everything is native, but the foreground stuff is like... jpg`?

Those are the objects that you can pick up and move around and thus probably can cast and receive dynamic lighting. Maybe for that reason they get a special (fixed resolution?) rendering treatment.

This is using re-projection technology isn't it. It's likely re-projecting 60fps to 120fps.

As I understand it, it doesn't do that. It does what the new Nvidia cards do for VR: a sort of frame warping based on feedback from the headset.

So it's nto interpolating a higher frame rate, it's interpolating a new orientation before the GPu spits out a new frame with the new orientation, so as to make the head trackign appear more responsive.

That head tracking latency (you mvoe your head but it takes a tiny moment more for the camera VR to follow) is a killer for VR, and even 60 FPS is probably not enough.

Are these 4k strictly for press purposes, or were they actually rendering the demos in 4k --presumably for the SSAA or possibly internal 4k Morpheus prototypes?

What do you think? Unless they were running the demos on PC's isntead of PS4's, then the demos were probably not running at 4K.

I can guarantee you that no PS4 was rendering the pictures in the OP as they are at 120 FPS. (Also, the actual rendered framebuffers for VR would look quite different)

Pretty impressive visuals. Mostly confined visuals so far, wonder what it would be like opened up.

That is not what that is. This is the entire object being rendered at an entirely different resolution.
Way to make an non-impartial judgement based off a DEMO! Based on actual impressions of this demo, the main reaction they wanted from the audience was achieved. But hey lets nitpick anyway, continue.

Definitely something weird going on there, kinda looks like a poor photoshop job?

The demos look nice anyway, cant wait to try morpheus myself!

I was just being curious about an image. Yikes!

Maybe someone did photoshop them.

You just described part of reprojection, which includes interpolation (augmented with movement data)

Yeah in the big picture you could say it's all basically variations on interpolation, but uses the single last frame as reference and happens earlier in the motion-to-photon process.
