Volumetric Fog & Mist 7 beta now available
« on: January 02, 2017, 05:51:07 AM »
Hi and wishing a marvellous 2017 to everyone!

Cool news. Beta 1 of Volumetric Fog & Mist v7 is now available on our support forum on kronnect.com.

Among the new features, two great improvements:

Up to x8 downsampling now allowed plus new edge improvement algorithm.
For those looking for the best performance, and thanks to the new edge improve you can now choose to downsample the fog buffer up to x8. This is optimal when using Volumetric Fog & Mist for cloud rendering, but it works quite well in other scenarios. Also smaller downsampling factors (x2, x4) have improved a lot as well.



New Depth Blur!
This new option blurs the color buffer in the final composition according to depth looking for extra light scattering effect. Example (click the image to enlarge):




This new upgrade is available to all customers from the beta board.
Hope you like it.

Hi! As stated on a similar thread, we want to include a couple of additional features before submitting a new release to the Asset Store so this new update means something cool for as many users as possible. In the meanwhile you can get it from the beta board.

Thanks!
