I thought of this after my radiosity vs ray tracing question.
A radiosity algorithm seems to require increased calculations because it's viewpoint independent and therefore, false radiosity was born (at least it's the way it was explained). It is mentioned that in order to simulate radiosity, changes were done directly in texture maps (in PS for example) or omni-type lights are placed where radiosity effects occur.
I wonder if false radiosity is still used nowadays (I'm assuming this may happen more often in games development). If so, are these techniques currently used or are there others methods to achieve the same purpose? Any examples would be a plus.
