    Hello,

    I don't know if it's possible for the unityteam, but it will excellent to have a scene with SSDAO and the same scene without SSDAO, to test how this lighting and render technique is good under Unity.

    I know recently this is possible only under PRO version, so i think everyone could test a scene with SSDAO, an exterior scene like the island demo.

    A sort of example that people can play and see.


    Unity Team, please, what do you think about that ?



    Many Thanks !! :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:



    Best Regards.
    :D :D

    Screen Space Demo of Ambient Occlusion?

    No, that doesn't sound right. :?

    I correct the title right now.

    Added a D, i don't know why lol.


    Yeah a demo, like island demo, to test and see the possibility of SSAO, on an exterior scene.

    I discover this technique when seeing a crytek video, and now i just want to know more about.


    Thanks a lot :) :)

    You can do it yourself, and learn more.

    1) You need Pro, or the 30-day Pro trial

    2) You will need to import the Pro assets package

    3) You need to look at the SSAO page in documentation:
    http://unity3d.com/support/documentation/Components/script-SSAOEffect.html

    (even if Unity gave you a demo, you would still need to do 1,2, and 3)

    4) Open the Island demo project and click on the Main Camera in Hierarchy, then go to Component/Image effects/SSAO

    5) the SSAO settings will open in the component on your camera in the Inspector. Play with the settings and read the documentation.

    I figured it out. You can too. Don't be so lazy.

    the effect is not world changing.
    It adds shadows that are not direct shadows casts but the consequence of the surrounding geometry basically

    Also ensure that you have a pixel light source

    looks like either the light setup is not optimal or your gpu not liking the effect that much

    don't know the CAD cards well enough to be able to say which desktop chip is behind your cad name

    Nvidia quadro 3800fx is like GForce 8800 or better.


    i have this effect also on GForce cards.

    optimal... do you can help me optimalize this settings?

    I just tried it in my game. The first screen below has SSAO and the second doesn't. This is with the default settings and one directional light source. The effect is subtle, especially with the soft shadow, but it's definitely there.
