Accelerated walkthroughs

Recommended Posts

This is usually related to the amount of video memory on your graphics card, as the complexity of your model increases, and the 3D resolution is set higher. Your video card needs to hold more information in memory to retain the model.

So the short answer is yes, a better video card will probably help this.

Does anyone have advice on how to improve my hardware to get faster, smoother realtime walkthrough capability? A moderately large GL-rendered model (e.g., an ordinary house) on my computer allows me to navigate smoothly with no jerkiness or hesitation. A large, more complex model, especially with 3D conversion resolution set to high, can be jerky and unresponsive. Would a faster video card improve performance, or is this strictly a processer speed issue?

Note that some of the new cards, such as the GeForce 4 cards, can have 128 MB of memory. (This is not an official NNA endorsement of these particular cards, but I personally wouldn't turn my nose up at one...)
