Hey guys,

Is there a way to color the ambient occlusion effect instead of it always being grayscale? I am trying to replicate a certain type of plastic on an object and to have a specified color in the area where AO is applied would work really well.

Any ideas?

If you're using the post effect there's a color gradient in the effect settings. If you're using the shader you can put it inside a colorizer shader (in color channel -- diffuse is B&W only).
