We’ve always offered a downloadable demo showcasing the capabilities of the SilverLining Sky, 3D Cloud, and Weather SDK and the Triton Ocean SDK for people who want to see how it performs on their own system.

It had been a few years since we rebuilt this demo, and a LOT has changed in both packages over that time. Everything runs faster and looks better now, plus there are new features like 3D volumetric ray-casted clouds in SilverLining that we wanted to show off. But we’ve built the demo against the latest SDK’s, added a scene, and fixed a few bugs in it while we were at it. It will give you a better picture of what SilverLining and Triton really look like in a real application, and how well it performs.

If you’d like to install and run our latest demo yourself, you can get the Sundog Software tech demo here. It only requires Windows and fairly recent video drivers.

Or, if you’d rather not install something, we captured a video of it, using just a modest NVidia GTX1080-based system:
