Realistic shading in BS Contact - the fast deferred way.

Berg near Munich, October 24, 2012

Ambient occlusion attempts to simulate the light that is cast in a scene even if it is coming from the objects themselves.

With the newly implemented ambient occlusion shader that is based on the deferred shading component in BS Contact objects appear much more live-like than before.

On the image above of a cathedral in Vienna we have placed a before/after-comparison for you to judge by yourself. Dont't you think the cullumns look better, the roof seems more three dimensional and the figures on top of the entrance appear in front of the building?

And all this can be done now with interactive framerates in BS Contact thanks to deferred rendering.
