Overview: Skylanders: Superchargers leveraged mixed resolution rendering to help optimize the fill heavy effects that established the feeling of the skylands such as clouds and localized atmospherics. This lecture will cover the improvements in quality and performance that were developed to make this possible for the wide range platforms that needed to be supported. The topics will include best practices for depth downsampling, bilateral filter weighting improvements, and a performant branchless upsample technique.
