Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Using two LPVs simultaneously (different settings after a certain distance)?

Easily my biggest issue with Light Propagation Volumes is that it's impossible to tweak them to look good at close range as well as in the distance. This appears to make them completely unusable in medium to large scale open environments.

alt text Image 1 (LPV scale 5312): Foreground looks good, background is much too dark. alt text Image 2 (LPV scale 40000): Foreground is much too bright, background looks good.

Could this problem could be solved by using a separate LPV with different settings after a certain distance from the camera, similar to replacing cascade shadows with distance field shadows after a certain distance threshold? I'm sure it's not as easy as it sounds and would come with quite a hit on performance, but the only alternative I see right now is not using dynamic global illumination at all, which would be a bummer.

Does anyone know if something around these lines is possible? alt text Image 3: Photoshopped combination of image 1 and 2. Both foreground and background are lit correctly.
