Some of All of This Real scenes have all of these forms of complexity Extreme realism in one form of complexity is not necessarily that interesting Incredible material models that are completely homogenous and lit by a single directional light Great lighting environments for diffuse surfaces with no shadows Real scenes have all of these forms of complexity Extreme realism in one form of complexity is not necessarily that interesting Incredible material models that are completely homogenous and lit by a single directional light Great lighting environments for diffuse surfaces with no shadows

What is Precomputed Radiance Transfer (PRT)? Parameterize an objects response to lighting, expressed in some basis Partition into two processes Offline transport simulator precomputes spatially varying linear operators that map lighting in given basis to exit radiance Run time render the object using the current viewing/lighting environment using precomputed data Parameterize an objects response to lighting, expressed in some basis Partition into two processes Offline transport simulator precomputes spatially varying linear operators that map lighting in given basis to exit radiance Run time render the object using the current viewing/lighting environment using precomputed data
