DB looks like just what I'm looking for, there is a few things I'd like to know about..

1. Can I perform multiple vertex deformations on a polymesh? Such as to animate a face?

2. For the typical in-game cut-scenes: (I know it purely depends on vid. card, processor and detail etc , but...) How many characters could I have animated onscreen together? Take for example the zombie characters i saw on thi site - could I have 4 of these characters (skeletal animated) All limb motion would be looked-up fK rotatations coming from Maya. So pretty much all motion predefined, not much to calculate.
Add to this decent convincing environment geom? (lighting would be pre-baked into textures)...
(Assume an average decent modern PC and vid card.)

3. Any way to fake depth of field?

Any thoughts, I'd love to hear them.. Thanks

Im sure 1 and 2 are possible. I like the sound of zombies

I have seen depth of field done using shaders but a lot of cards wouldn't be able to see the effect and it was very slow due to the whole scene having to be proccesed through the vertex shaders instead of the fixed TnL. I dont know about any other ways.
