Guys, this is unbelievable so far!
Played with it for only a couple of hours, but it's simply great!
There're some new features that was not even revealed. Partial transparency is now enabled, 3d sounds are movable (sound of engine can move with your car!), rendering can be paused for animations (even if you may not need this). Those were the features which were not officially announced as far as i realise.
Global illumination, volumetric clouds and animated textures work great at first sight.
The only thing i didn't like so much is the way that we apply the planar reflections.
Just a quick note, not every mp4 videos can be used as an animated texture. I guess only H.264/MPEG-4 files are accepted.
