    VXAO Forest

    Hi Guys,

    I made this little video showing NVIDIA VXAO in action. It was a nice exercise and I hope you like the results!

          Wow. Thanks all! [MENTION=27744]Ravneson[/MENTION]: VXGI build 4.11 should be in the making so whenever that's released yeah, give it a spin. It really is great stuff!

            [MENTION=4597]Chesire[/MENTION] : Oh, I will. been meaning to dust off & re-do my thesis project. VXAO looks very promising in that regard!

                  Very realistic looking.

                    Excellent work!

                    A couple of questions?

                    How long did it take to produce this?
                    What kind of machine are you using?
                    How hard is it to set up VXAO?

                    Thanks!

                      Thanks everyone! Really appreciate all the nice comments. You guys are awesome!
                      @RI3DVIZ: If you don't count endless -and futile- experimenting with Speedtree wind and procedural foliage volumes, it took a day. Include named experiments, 2 days. Guessing some 6 hours or so per day.
                      I'm on a i7 X980 3.33GHZ, 24GB ram, 500GB SSD, Titan-X, the latter being the only top notch component in my pc VXAO is very easy to setup. Downloading and compiling the VXGI version of the engine might seem a bit daunting for some at first, but it really isn't very complicated (more annoying that it's separate). Once that's done, using VXAO is just a toggle in your ini or via console. You can tweak a lot of settings in your PPV or via console.

                        Thanks for the info, my machine isn't that good - only an i5 quad core and Nvidia GT 720.
                        So, am I correct no lightmapping needed with VXAO? I HATE lightmapping!

                          You should be able to run it easily. Yes ofc Titan-X helps a lot but VXAO/VXGI is very scaleable. With this scene, biggest performance hit came from all the little foliage.
                          No lightmapping required indeed. Which is just heaven yes! Don't expect Lightmass quality ofc. It's good but not nearly that good. Maybe in some years :-)

                            Your last scene with the log on the ground looks as good as anything I have seen in UE4! Great again and thanks for the info.
