The tech has improved massively since then (as has the HW we now run on). There was never intention to show any part of this to the public until we could include voxel rendering and Lightstage based characters. I think anyone who liked what they saw, will find the final project much more impressive.

The following presentations this month are just introducing Lightstage and how it makes characters (or any CG object) look 100% real in those real time environments.
