Thanks for the answer!
I absolutely need SSAO in my VR project, and I never noticed any problems with that, I have it set to lowest quality but TAA works really well with blurring it so much that it still looks great. I’ve never noticed any difference between the two eyes and SSAO. I really want to use the forward renderer since I need as much performance as possible in VR, but I won’t be able to use it if it won’t support SSAO. I know I’d have to switch to the gaussian blur when using MSAA instead of TAA, but that’s not much of a problem I think.
Are you sure there’s any noticeable problem in VR with SSAO? I used it for months now and I’m quite sure I would have noticed if it wouldn’t look right. I use SSAO mostly to replace dynamic shadows since they are so expensive, and it’s great at faking those shadows with the right settings.
