Emissive & Ambient Light

Emissive Glow
In the lighting post-process, the emissive areas are added. This very simple technique creates the illusion of self-luminous objects without complex light calculation. The picture gallery shows up the rendering steps.

Ambient & Backside Occlusion
The ambient light has been optimized. The simple brightness value has been replaced by a color value. This makes it possible to create various ambient moods. Another optimization is backside occlusion. In this case, the backside normals running parallel to the lightdirection are darkest illuminated.
