New real-time Screen Space Global Illumination add-on for EEVEE


Blender user “0451” just released a free SSGI addon for EEVEE on his Gumroad page.

His addon cleverly combines all the scene’s materials with Screen Space reflections, allowing for this screen space GI effect. This gives it the benefit of working “realtime” straight from the viewport, on top of EEVEE’s traditional baked GI which uses probes. It also allows for the screen space GI to be dynamic and animatable.

The addon is very light, check out the Gumroad link if you want to give it a try, or pop into the Blender Artists thread if you want to know more.
