  • 50c53cb The background (cubemap) environment was looking pixelated due to being sampled with a box filter (GL_NEAREST). Changing this to GL_LINEAR fixes it. At the particular resolution of the environments, it's not necessary to create mipmaps or use GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_LINEAR sampling, as the lower mips would only have a minor effect in the extreme corners of the cube. If we later support a wider range of resolutions, or sample from this environment map for reflections, then we should generate mips. Ideally, the environment would be pre-compressed with pre-generated mips, but simply using GL_LINEAR helps a lot for now. (#653)
