Scatter Sky Color Banding


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've found that the default scatter sky object has a pretty noticeable color banding effect. Apparently I'm not the only one because the beamNG devs pointed it out and even fixed it in this blog post:

Does anyone have any idea how to fix it? I think it would be something worth looking at to improve torque3D's visuals a bit. I've looked through the source code a bit and even the shaders and I can't really pin down where this problem would be. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Behind on the T3D version (not sure if this is 3.9 compatible) but some time ago removed some banding with the following change:


in /game/core/scripts/client/defaults.cs


replace

$pref::PostEffect::PreferedHDRFormat = "GFXFormatR8G8B8A8";

with

$pref::PostEffect::PreferedHDRFormat = "GFXFormatR16G16B16A16F";

and regenerate your prefs


That's with HDR of course, so if you have it on then it's worth a try

Thanks for replying Nils! This could be enough to satisfy, I'll try it out.
