New CRYENGINE Fan Tech Demo Shows Off SVOTI (Real-time Global Illumination)

Our reader ‘Simon Majar’ shared with us a new tech demo for CRYENGINE that shows off the SVOTI feature and the volumetric fog feature of CRYENGINE. Simon’s demo features two modes; one in which GI is disabled and another with full GI, diffuse and specular.

SVOTI (Sparse Voxel Octree Total Illumination) is a system that can achieve high quality global illumination in real time.

In this demo you can change the time of day, and look how the light reacts.

Those interested can download this tech demo from here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
