Valve to add HDR lighting to Half-Life 2


TR reader NeRve tipped me off that Valve will add High Dynamic Range (HDR) lighting effects to Half-Life 2. The new lighting effects will likely require a DirectX 9-class graphics cards, although unlike Far Cry's OpenEXR HDR effects, I suspect they'll work on GeForce and Radeon cards alike. Let's hope the performance penalty associated with HDR in Half-Life 2 is more reasonable than we've observed in Far Cry.
