PR Web Engine Test

The first public test of the web engine is now online. Go to www.powerrender.com, click on products from the menu and then PR Web Engine. Click the try it link. You may need to refresh the page after downloading the control. The control is not working 100% yet, and it may crash your browser but it won''t do any harm to your system. Let me know if you have any problems and what your system specs are. I''m sure there will be quite a few at this stage in development. Author of Power Render (http:/www.powerrender.com)

Windows 2000 Service Pack 2

The logo and the skeleton worked fine, although the skeleton spins too quickly in my opinion. Oh, and the logo doesn''t spin/move at all. Is it supposed to?

However, the landscape demo gave me the BSOD followed by a core dump. It looked like it finished loading, then puked. Didn''t try any more after that one.

P3-900
Win2000
IE 5.5 SP1
ATI Rage Mobility

I am running it on a very low end system as I am away from my normal computer right now. This might be helpful to get a test on the low end side.

Pentium 2
400 Mhz
128 Mb Ram
8 GB Harddrive (Although very little open space.)
Not sure what the Video Card is but its very bad. Doesn't even support D3D. (can't even run Power Render tools)
Windows 98
Internet Explorer 5


Skeleton worked fine. Although rotation was way too fast

Logo appeared but could not rotate.

Cartoon Shading did not work. It finished loading but green screen is all that appeared

Shaded Logo with MP3. Worked fine.

Landscape Demo: Load time about 5 minutes. After loading, couldn't handle it. Crashed because the system couldn't handle it similar to when too many files are up.

Animated Objects: Seemed to work fine.

I think I figured it out!

If I load that HTML page
http://www.powerrender.com/webengine/PRWebTest.htm
directly (so that the frames don''t load ) everyhing works perfectly.. no crahes at all!

Could those of you who had crashes try the page again by loading it directly and see if the problem goes away?

Tried it on my system at work. They all run fine, even in the framed window.

P2-400, 256MB
TNT2
IE 5.0 SP2

I noticed that the "Loading" indicator bar doesn''t show up on this system, but it did display on my laptop.

Also, I said earlier that the logo didn''t rotate, but actually the app wasn''t running. It seems that the first time you click on one of the windows, a plugin is installed, then the PR4 logo with the website info is displayed, but the app doesn''t start unless you click it again. So I saw the splash screen and thought it was the app running.

everything looks good except the toon rendering. it looks fuxed up : )

the toon rendering looks good in the PR4 example .exe (altho the specular lighting looks horrible)

The toon rendering is supposed to have weird colors because I was trying to do something different than the regular example.
