    Practical Dynamic Lighting for Large-Scale Game Environments



    Dynamic lighting techniques are vital in giving artists rapid feedback and reducing iteration time. In this technical postmortem, we will talk about dynamic lighting techniques for large-scale game environments that reflect changes in the time of day and include many dynamic lights. Moreover, a unified atmospheric scattering technique with clouds will also be discussed.
