We recently finished our ambient occlusion implementation for PolyVox. Please check out the blog post about it. The patch is attached there, too. I would be glad about feedback. Either here, on the blog post via comments or on twitter. Thanks a lot.

Very interesting stuff, thanks for sharing! Local ambient occlusion has always been one of the things which was missing from PolyVox and I know other people have wanted it.

Have you seen any of the previous threads on this topic? I think the most useful was this one:


But I guess you may have seen it as you talk about quad-flipping. I also have some thoughts on how I was planning to approach the problem if I ever got around to it myself:


It might sound like overkill but I was keen to see what else could be done with the neighbourhood information.

Thanks for the patch as well - I'm sure people will find it useful but I must say I probably won't integrate it myself, mostly because PolyVox is largely in maintenance mode at the moment.

Yes, I think I've read most of them. And the flipping is also implemented. It's a pity that you it won't be integrated, but yes, the patch is there, so people can use it if they want it.
