I've added simple render element that displays the total albedo of each material. It turns red when the albedo is too high. You can use it to quickly assess your scene materials - only small portions of the scene, excluding glass, water, and mirrors, should be in red.

Example of correct scene:




Example of bad scene that will render slower and look bad:


Rendering is magic.

Excellent
Can you to include glass, water, and mirrors? And can you to do that can be set custom albedo? 180-220 for example

Just to make it clear, Albedo shows the areas where light is reflected the most? I honestly never heard this term before, can someone enlight how to properly use this pass? It looks very promicing but google search didnt give any kind of usefull (in my opinion) information.

Looks like a useful tool.

Is this a daily build feature only? Don't seem to see it in v5.

Thanks
