22 Improved Radiance Gradient Computation 22/35 Previous Work - Hemisphere sampling Ward and Heckbert 1992 “Irradiance gradients” Specifically for irradiance Cosine-proportional, uniformly weighted samples over the hemisphere We extend this to uniformly distributed, arbitrarily weighted samples Křivánek et al. 2005, Annen 2004 Radiance gradient Works mostly fine, except when there is occlusion in the sampled environment We improve quality of this
