Very nice! Perhaps we weren't using it as intended. The illusion is that the letters are near, but actually in the farthest distance?

Actually... if I remember it correctly, the DEAO was the very first method to fake "shadows" when the 3D mandelbulb was found. All my early renders (with subblues pixelbender script) of the mandelbulb used this.
Later Jesse found much better ways to get more even shadings, but I like to try out the 'old' ways sometimes.
Thank you Kevin!!!

Interesting that the name of that effect is a transposition of "a Deo" which you get if starting at the lower left reading clockwise. Ties in nicely with "The Scapegoat".

Thank you Lia. I can assure you it was very unintentional, maybe my feber unconciously made this connection. :)
Glad you found it, very interesting1

Thank you Dsyne!
Push the Postprocess button, choose DEAO in the AMBIENT SHADOWS section.
I had a low raycount to get more "effect"...
Only gives nice results in some hybrids, but you should try it out!
