Release Notes

 

This release contains some maintenance updates to the Materials viewer, such as:

  • Materials underwater support, note that Materials do not render in reflections and there are some differences in lighting from water fog.
  • Addressed issues with rendering Impostors when Advanced Lighting Model is enabled.
  • Addressed lighting differences between alpha and non-alpha objects and between deferred rendering and non-deferred rendering.

    • NORSPEC-284 CLONE - Projected light shining on objects with any transparency has crazy effects

    • MATBUG-309 In Release 3.6.2 (278916), shadows enabled or not, colored alpha objects that are not full-value (i.e. 128) are lit vastly differently under sunlight or point lights, than objects that are full-value (255) (Similar to MATBUG-250 and MATBUG-108.)
      • MATBUG-353 Under Advanced Lighting, As transparency/alpha ramps towards 100%, it begins to brighten, then finally fade. This causes a "halo" effect and "self glow" on alpha objects below around 60% transparency, in addition to an alpha/nonalpha mismatch
