Post Effects

Are Post Effects perfectly sutable for VR?
i.e. if the sun is visible in one pano-square and makes a massive glare, and in the adjacent square it is not visible, would the glare still render correctly / be continuous?

Hi,

No, post effects don't work correctly with the panoramic camera. You might get away with using bloom and glare but if it leaks over the cube edges it will look incorrect.

cheers,

Hi. Thanks for the quick answer!
Will this be possible in future versions? These Post effects can have a wonderful and strong atmospherical impact on the Overall mood of the scene.

It sort of works in spherical panos. See my other posts on how you can use this as an interim workaround.

One even simpler idea:

render at spherical pano, 6144x3072, in each eye, with post. Then bring the each eye back into Octane and save as cube map. Combine the two in PS and that will work - but you will render 30% more doing so.

Save as cube map in this case would be: add a spherical cam, set it to cube map and render the spherical panos that sit on an HDR environment?

Other question, Maybe even other topic. But why did you guys choose cube maps rather than spherical?
