Installed the glorious DX 6.1 SDK today. Found this impossible to explain 3d sample:
What was Microsoft smoking when they thought "This is a good example!":



What do you think this represents? An UFO? A great D3D sample? Sock smoking?

If I had to guess I'd say it's highlighting some shading or shadow/lighting functions. Today that image gets a "WTF?", 17 years ago you would've been amazed by the shadow actually appearing on the moving object in the middle and the, I'm assuming, animated textures. Then the gradients on the main object would really blow your mind.. Different times, man. Different times.

their probably trying to showcase some early version of global illumination rather then a good looking thing. But that's just me guessing, so I don't really know
