Greeting to everybody

Ambient occlusion is a standard for almoust all 3d-editords and all 3d-engines - and after it the developers ignore this tast to be realised in karma?

There is a thought that is well known: - "beauty requires sacrifice". Why developers don't take things into account

The main shader should have a slot for ambient oclusion even if it is a physically correct visualizer


Is there new easy colution for it?

AO is typically multiplied with the base color. Have you tried that with your painter map?

Just add mtlxambientocclusion (or you're painted texture) to both shaders. The raytracing mtlxambientocclusion does is global, so you will automatically get a contact shadow type effect between objects.

About mtlxambientocclusion node

The developers make show of any new features in update or in new version of houdini OR the developers secretly release certain tools and it is your problem to find these tools. I've searched for them myself - I didn't find anything (i have no 20th version of houdini)

The decision would be up to the MaterialX folks to add to the specification [materialx.org], not SideFX devs. A dedicated slot sounds unlikely to me though because of the many ways something non physical like occlusion could be utilized. Typically it gets used to darken the base color a bit which is super easy to do either way.

As I understand it, sidefx implements a separate responsibility and all the material preparation work should be done by the MaterialX organization?

sorry - i don't know english and sometimes i am forced to guess

Right, MaterialX is a specification, not an implementation. SideFX are following the specification, which states ambient occlusion should be supported via mtlxambientocclusion.
