I was trying to do a pre-calculations of an SSAO effect by rendering normals and depth on a cubemap and doing a second ssao pass on each of these faces. The problem is I'm getting a timeout: "the nvidia opengl driver lost connection with the display driver...", when using high resolutions. Is there a good way to do such calculations without having to tweak registry values? I want this to be able to work for other people too.
In essence I'd love if there was also a way to add something like a loading bar so that people don't think the program crashed or something.
