If you wanted my theory it goes like this. Currently videos of movies
depict the camera viewing 1 or more of the subjects at 1 particular angle
and 1 particular zoom factor.
Now if you used some tech, say Intel's new "immersive media" using
then you could combine the known position of people and objects, ray
tracing, and what each items color is to allow a video file to be played
from different perspectives, zoom factors, and looking at different
It's a long way off, I know, and at the risk of saying the obvious, the
decisions that are made today are the ones that affect tomorrow.
With AMD's interest in what buyers think of RTX, and the fact that
they have created and released opensource drivers, thus demonstrating
that we are worthy of their time, this gives the Linux community a chance
