Enlighten Illuminates Nintendo Switch Development


After introducing support for YEBIS 3 on Nintendo Switch, Silicon Studio has announced that they have optimised Enlighten for the portable home console.

The high quality real-time global illumination technology calculates how light is reflected and absorbed by the objects and materials in a scene, and, by adding light reflection effects, artists can illuminate a scene with a few light sources to produce a sense of unity while accurately representing delicate details.

Enlighten efficiently calculates large-scale mathematical processes that are needed to generate high-quality images that use light maps, spherical harmonic probes and reflection captures.

Silicon Studio hopes that it will help artists take control of both subtle and dynamic lighting to create more breathtaking visuals, already being used for the game, movie, real estate and product visualisation industries.
