*Edid: Even on a 1080p screen, click original size in Youtube player video options - as Youtube will give you a much better bit rate with 4k than with 1080p or 720p. That way 4k looks stunning compared to normal videos, even on a normal HD screen. So will 4k sbs look great on stande 3d display devices*

Hello,

I was not logged in here for quite some time - but I am back with some entertainment stuff. A friend of mine and me, we both have the opportunity to use professional video equipment like a 4k Sony projectors and broadcast capture devices. With our archive of most PC games from the past 20 years, it did not take long until we started to "4k" our collection. Capturing 4k does not take long, nor is it most of the time complicated to get games running in 4k - but the upload takes time. So we will 24/7 uploading tons of "4k" PC games in the next months! As it will take time get get everything uploaded. please post a wish list of preferred games.
We certainly will focus very soon on the creation of 3D 4k material. Because of the hardware (cable/video standart/bandwidth) 4k in now limited to 30hz (60hz with ATI hack), but will also be limited to regular 60hz for a long future (HDMI 1.5). So we will concentrate on 4k side by side projects.

Like with Crisis Warhead, we will produce 4k videos with and without texture and other graphic mods. We do not use games that show violence, . If a game shows content we do not like, but we want it in 4k, we will choose parts from the game that are ok with us.

We also take screen shots from games running in 4k. And if a game shows more field of view in 4k resolutions, we also do screen shots in 720p and 1080p. As I do not know what file sizes and numbers are allowed in this forum, I will wai for clarification before uploading them.

What gaming hardware are you running on because frankly I checked out the first Crisis 3 link and it was lagging like crazy. For 4k gaming you really should have at least 3 Titans.

XBOX Live: Wagmman
PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman
Steam: Wag

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

We use a recent Intel quad @4ghz plus a 760gtx and dedicated physx card. With most games this is ok, but Crisis 3 for sure needs more (Crisis Warhead certainly runs better). This project is young, so an uprgrade in hardware will follow soon. In recent setups I did go up to four way sli with older cards. So this is an option for us, but requires also a mainboard change. But SLI and probably three way SLI can be done faster.
But please also consider that Youtube donwgrades to 30fps, so if your upload material is inconsistend in frames but ok to play - Youtube will make it even more laggy as it decides what frames to use. So we have to get very good 60fps material to reach a good 30fps video experiance. Thats what we learnd so far...

Hello,

and sorry for not updating this thread. We have been experimenting with PC hardware... The videos so far on youtube are a small result of this. We had to do it, even our capturing hardware works great, but 4k need very good computers for smooth gaming. We had to eliminate f.e. RAM as a source of lags in 4k videos (1600mhz and up is ok). Now we will receive our new hardware at the end of this week, and then start to flood youtube with 4k and 4k stereo videos.
For you VR sepcialists here, I will upload two 4k side by side videos this night, even if they are not perfect smooth until now. But you will be able to see very high details in 4k sbs, as you will receive two 1920x2160 streams in one 3840x2160 video.
I also post these videos here, because I hope to get feedback about the 3d quality. After more than a decade dealing with Nvidia and Nvidia pro cards, I have to get into Tridef and Zalman drivers. The two videos are just standard options in tridef, with the ingame hud removed for better immersion if possible or to eliminate obvious flaws. I hope that we also will be able to provide a good Rift experiance in the future, even if we do not have one by our hand. We use a full field of view covering projection setup, and so are forced to keed fast camera movements at an minimum - which should help Rift user too. But here are feedbacks and recommendations welcome too.
We also can capture frame sequtial in 4k (!) now produced by Nvidia 3d Vision - but we could need recomendations beside "Sony Vegas" for the conversion of 4k frame sequential to side by side.

Best regards

Marc
