David: The short answer is "all the way"! Since Cg is a language, and not a specific piece of hardware or software with a specific feature set, Cg is the scalable solution that can and will evolve to allow GPUs and real-time rendering to create any picture, over time. Of course, Rome wasn't built in a day; in the current generation, Cg running on GeForce3 and GeForce4 can only make the same pictures that you could make before using those GPUs (they're great pictures, though), but those images are now easier for programmers and artists to make. Because we are making artists and programmers more productive, we will see more cinematic quality images.
