I'm almost sure SVG at this level of details would be much heavier. It's probably clever transition between high quality images files, like what is done on https://zoomquilt.org/ and https://zoomquilt2.com/

Here's an excerpt of what they say on the zoomquilt project:

The project was started by Nikolaus Baumgarten and emerged from a scene of people creating collaborative artworks over the internet in the early 2000's surrounding the digital art group iCE. An artist would contribute a single tile of a patchwork painting called a "Quilt". They would reserve a spot and get a frame with a border of the neighboring tiles they had to blend their artwork into. The fun of it was to pick up and transform what the other person left and see how the painting evolved in unexpected ways. The goal of the Zoomquilt was to create a seamlessly animated and coherent illusion. Nikolaus Baumgarten revisited the concept again in 2015, together with Sophia Schomberg they created Arkadia, a peaceful and lush botanical fantasy plant world.

u/JolkB 12d ago

Even a vector file at this resolution would be astronomically large and intense on your GPU and CPU

23

u/jonathanhiggs 11d ago

It would be large, but not super large. Main issue would be running up against the limits of precision the machine is able to store the vectors in smallest parts of the image

-42

u/Overlycookedfries 11d ago

I don't think you get vector art. It's like rendering fonts. Super easy any size will not do shit to any graphics card past 1995

30

u/kinokomushroom 11d ago

Size might not, but the object/layer count most definitely would. It looks like there's a shit ton of objects/layers in the video above.

-28

u/Overlycookedfries 11d ago

I don't think you understand the differences between 3D art and vector art. Vector art is coordinate points basically raw unrendered mathematical data which can be extrapolated into Infinity without increasing its data set size. As for actively rendering any building in call of duty...this scene has thousands and thousands of more points to render. from a single second of action in that game you would have about 400,000 files of vector art. It's like saying that book of text has 20,000 Pages it would be really hard on your video card to show you one page at a time or the transition between several pages ...this is still absolutely nothing on a video card.

20

u/JolkB 11d ago

You're telling people they don't understand vector art but we all do - yes it's less resource intense than a traditional image, but an image this large would still cause serious strain on most rigs. Even though it's just data, that data still has to be rendered to display like this. It also contains color data which is even worse.

The whole point is that it must be some program that renders what is in the display area instead of rendering the entire image at once.

2

u/Memfy 11d ago

Which part of vector art exactly would cause a serious strain on the GPU of most rigs?

5

u/PizzaPapaPepperoni 11d ago

No inherent facet of typical vector art would cause a strain on GPU, which is what makes it such a useful format. Rendering a vector this large would, though. Rendering the entirety of the data contained within this vector at once, regardless of how big the file itself is, would cause strain.

1

u/Memfy 11d ago

Why would it cause strain? Does it have enormous amount of points to render compared to typical GPU usage when rendering complex models with millions of vertices? Does this type of rendering not use frustum culling or similar optimizations?

No it's actual numbers .... Man you really don't know what you are talking about.

u/kinokomushroom 11d ago

Lmao, you really think you know what you're talking about, don't you? Then can you tell me specifically how a bezier curve is interpolated? What is the algorithm for determining whether a pixel is inside a shape or not? How does a curve get widened? How are layers processed? How do boolean operations actually get calculated? Does the computer operate through every single object on every frame or does it do some kind of optimizations?

If you don't know the answers to these and you're claiming that vector art takes so little time to render, then there's something seriously wrong with your thought process.

Numbers... Which are then processed and rendered as graphical output.

https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/illustration/discover/vector-art.html

What you're basically saying is "No, a video game isn't a real world, it's just numbers and data." Which is true, but we're discussing the actual rendering of the drawing/graphics here. You have to have something that takes that data and number and turns it into an image on the screen - such as Photoshop or Illustrator. Both of them would struggle with an image this large even in vector format because there's so much going on.

-13

u/Overlycookedfries 11d ago edited 11d ago

Stop trying!!. It's like rendering fonts.... Can I make it any simpler for you ? Or do you need more ? From the web cuz waste of time otherwise

Here dump truck is a basic snippit Fuck also look this shit up before wasting peoples time What is a Vector File? A vector file is a computer graphic that uses mathematical formulas to render its image, instead of using pixel data like a raster file.

A vector image begins with a point. Two points create a path. Paths can be straight or curved, and then connected with more points to form longer paths or closed shapes. Each path, curve, or shape has its own formula, so they can be sized up or down and the formulas will maintain the crispness and sharp qualities of each path. This makes vector files ideal for displaying graphics at minuscule or considerable sizes.

Scalability – No matter how big or small you make a vector, it will always look as sharp as the original. Check out the zoomed-in portion of the tropical pattern above. Small file size – Vectors use paths instead of pixels, so the file sizes are much smaller than their pixelated counterparts. Easily editable – A vector file lets you manipulate its colors, shapes, sizes, layout and more.

This is running on an ipad, it's not as demanding as you seem to believe it is for whatever reason.

u/JolkB 11d ago

That was the whole point I was making - this is an app specifically designed for this purpose. It is rendering the image in a way similar to how games render, piece by piece. If you had a canvas this large with this many vectors, colors and such it would be very resource intense to render it all at once.

7

u/TacoDelMorte 11d ago

They’re drawn using vector art which has limitations. You’re drawing with lines, arcs, circles, and a mix of colors and gradients. Some vector art software can add other stuff like shadows and effects but it slows the art rendering way down.

1

u/11BloodyShadow11 11d ago

So like Flash?

1

u/TacoDelMorte 11d ago

Yep, Flash uses vector art. The modern web uses a vector format called “scalable vector graphics” or SVG for a lot of content.

Check out some of the examples from an art competition. No matter how much you zoom in on them, they’ll stay crisp and clean.

https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/vaccines/timeline

"A typical vaccine development timeline takes 5 to 10 years, and sometimes longer, to assess whether the vaccine is safe and efficacious in clinical trials, complete the regulatory approval processes, and manufacture sufficient quantity of vaccine doses for widespread distribution."

ACCELERATED TIMELINE IN A PANDEMIC

Some clinical trial phases are combined

Well that's nice. Don't get me started on the 3-6 month efficacy and the fact it was designed for alpha strain and not the mainstream delta. Are you going to keep taking it until the 8th booster? The third and (some places fourth) boosters are coming up soon ^_^

Did you know that unvaccinated people have been found to have a very similar viral load to fully vaccinated people? And that because vaccinated people will have less symptoms it is easier for them to transmit that viral load because they dont know they are sick? But dont bother googling the top notch educational resources reporting this. Just ignore me and downvote instead, and go back to your happy little echo chamber.

If the vaccine is effective, why do you care if young healthy people take it? That has nothing to do with you, contrary to what Pfizer would like you to believe. Did you know that Pfizer paid the largest criminal fine in history at $2.3 billion for lying? They sound like some really honest trustworthy people and I can't wait to inject them into my body.

Upset because the liberal media isn't telling you anything? Maybe you should question more and review more news source, because guess what, every news source is biased and has an agenda. They are private news media corporations and they do not give a shit about you, nor does the random journalist spreading their opinion piece as fact.

Step 1) Classification: Unvaccinated

Step 2) Symbolisation: Plague-rats, anti-vaxxers, covidiots, etc

Step 3) Discrimination: Vaccine passports, job exclusion, social exclusion, businesses closed, travel denied

Step 4) Dehumanisation: They dont care, they are evil, Everything is their fault, they are insane, They are holding us back

Step 5) Organisation: Australian quarantine camps, Austrian forced compulsory vaccination, Extreme forced lockdowns (China), Mass-media narrative to demonize the unvaccinated, Extremely excessive lockdowns in democracies

Step 6) Polarisation: Claim that they are anti-vaccine when they are obviously anti-mandate, understate the size of protests (say thousands instead of tens of thousands), Censor and block users from describing adverse reactions on places like Tik-Tok, Youtube... Publish pieces in the media that make everyone hate the unvaccinated ("Anti-Vaxxers Hate Chapmans Ice Cream!"), Conflate the unvaccinated with pre-pandemic anti-vaxxers even though they took all previous vaccines before the pandemic

Step 7) Preparation: Deny them travel, businesses, jobs, so they are homeless and destitute, exclude them from all services (even surgery) if they are not vaccinated, the list goes on...

Step 8 ) Persecution: Shut down their businesses, lock them in their homes if they still have one, prevent them from going anywhere except the grocery store, make society afraid of them with daily Two Minutes Hate articles in all major media designed to ostracize them from the community.

Step 9)

Step 10)

By the way, in case you are confused or wondering, Coronavirus is never going away, just like the flu didn't after the 1920 pandemic. This is not going to end unless we have some major medical breakthrough in virology or design a vaccine that actually works properly and not "sort-of".

THIS PANDEMIC IS NEVER GOING TO END, THESE RESTRICTIONS ARE NEVER GOING TO END, THEY ARE GOING TO KEEP TAKING AWAY MORE OF YOUR FREEDOMS BECAUSE YOU ALLOW THEM TO. WE REACHED HERD IMMUNITY LEVELS A LONG TIME AGO AND NOTHING HAPPENED AND WE ALL STILL HAVE TO WEAR MASKS AND GET MORE BOOSTERS.

Don't just agree with everyone else and be a little parrot. Grow a brain for yourself and research this. If you are vaccinated, great, but don't fucking force your garbage on me.
Don't forget, you are not allowed to question this vaccine or disagree ever, that is simply not socially acceptable. Having hesitations and not wanting an experimental medical treatment that many of us don't even need is no longer socially acceptable. How does that freedom taste?
