Sampling is essential in CG rendering, image processing, object placement etc. HalftoningLight sampling on HDR environment maps

5
Desired sampling patterns Equally distant samples … e.g. Poisson disk Low energy in low frequency of the Fourier spectrum … Blue noise cf. Totally randomEqually distant → Blue noise → White noise

6
Blue noise property Observed in natural objects Considered optimal for human eyes Layout of human eye photoreceptors [Yellott, 1983]

7
Quality measures for blue noise spectra Radial average power spectrum ▪ The larger the central ring, the better Anisotropy ▪ The lower and flatter, the better Spectrum Radial average power spectrum Anisotropy ring

8
Efficient, high-quality blue noise sampling Adaptive sampling should be supported UniformAdaptive

Background Related Work Our Method Results Conclusions and Future Work

11
Two major approaches Dart throwing ▪ Random sampling of equidistant samples Tiling ▪ Tiling of precomputed samples

12
Dart throwing [Cook, 1986] Used for distributed ray tracing High computational cost Quality improvement: Lloyd’s relaxation … more costly Parallel Poisson disk [Wei, 2008] GPU-based acceleration # of samples cannot be determined Only supports 2D and 3D Our method # of samples can be specified Supports 2D, 3D, and curved surfaces

13
Wang tiles [Kopf et al., 2006] Requires precomputation Low quality Polyominoes [Ostromoukhov, 2007] Requires complicated precomputation Our method High quality No precomputation

14
Background Related Work Our Method Results Conclusions and Future Work

15
Input: seed points Given by the user Output: blue noise samples Features: Deterministic (reproducible with the same seeds) No precomputation Supports various sampling domains

16
Sequentially sample at the most sparse region The largest empty circle problem [Okabe et al., 2000] Can be solved using Delaunay triangulation ▪ Correspond to finding the largest circumcircle in Delaunay triangles 2D example

17
Loop: 1. Find the largest empty circle 2. Add a sample at the center 2D example

18
Loop: 1. Find the largest empty circle 2. Add a sample at the center 3. Update Delaunay triangles 2D example

19
Acceleration for search: Use of heap To find the largest circumcircle in O(1) Costs for insert / delete: O(log N) Support for adaptive sampling Scale the radii stored in the heap using density functions The greater the density, the higher the priority Heap of circumcircles’ radii Density function

20
Regular patterns peaks in the spectrum

21
Reason of the artifacts Iterative subdivisions of equilateral triangles Our solution: 1. Detect an equilateral triangle 2. Displace the new sample from the center of its circumcircle (see our paper for details)

22
Artifact-free 100,000 samples

23
Sparse samples at boundaries Reason Very thin triangles around boundaries Our solution: Use of periodic boundaries Tiled samples (tiled just for illustration)

24
Periodic boundaries Toroidal (torus-like) domain

25
Pros: Sparse regions disappear Edge lengths of triangles become balanced ▪ Overall centers of circumcircles lie within their triangles ▪ Allows us to specify the position of the new sample in O(1) Cons: A little additional cost for modifying coordinates

26
Exploit multi-core CPUs Uniform subdivision of 2D domain Further subdivision Costs: O(N log N) 4 M log M < N log N (if M = N/4) 4x4 subdivision is the fastest for a 4-core CPU ▪ 1.69 times faster for 100K samples 12 34 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4

27
3D domain: [0, 1) 3 2D → 3D Triangles → Tetrahedra (Delaunay Tetrahedralization) Circumcircles → Circumspheres Similar to 2D algorithm Delaunay tetrahedralization
