heh... i think maybe you have too high of expectations. :)
this technology is still EXTREMELY young and experimental. remember
that when pixar puts this level of detail in a movie - each shot takes
days of rendering time. in a realtime engine - these things have
never before been possible.
but you do raise an interesting idea: perhaps the best way to quickly
integrate mesostructure technology into our system is via the sculpt
map - the artist provides a high resolution sculpt map - which still
creates the standard low resolution mesh - but the details are fleshed-
out via mesostructures.....
