Anyone been taking fancy screenshots of the new soft shadows in 2.06?

 

I'd like to get ahold of some pretty pictures to use for the media release.  If you have any you could share, please let me know.  If they show off AI and/or newish assets, so much the better!

Made a couple. Not from recent FMs though, I haven't caught up yet.

(my browser autocorrects them to a weird aspect ratio and a darker gamma. download the full-size pngs, they should be fine)

IMO there should be something less contrasty and more focused on the soft shadows. So far you can barely see that these are soft shadows in the thumbnails.

Yeah, the pictures are a bit small, even on the site which opens.

 

What's the difference between the current shadows and soft shadows? Higher resolution, and smoother edges on soft shadows? Looks quite smoother on the pics, but, can't compare to how it is now.

These are previews, you can DL the 1920x1080 once you click on them. I fully agree that there's room for improvement when it comes to showcasing the soft shadows. I just went through some of my favorite FM spots that I could remember, and I like my Thief/TDM dark and contrasty.

In-game you can type "r_SoftShadowsRadius 0" in the console to compare (1 is default). They get softer the further from the lighsource they reach. Mostly, they just don't look like cut-outs anymore.

Yeah, but it's more about being informative and showing features people who don't know what it is about. So maybe something more simple would be better, like this:

Or even better, a comparison shot:

I also want new images to update our website, so beauty shots are also needed.

One from a recent run where it's pretty visible. Not a very clean one admittedly.
