Radiosity and realistic image synthesis by Michael F Cohen( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of image synthesis is to create, using the computer, a visual experience that is identical to what a viewer would experience when viewing a real environment. Radiosity and Realistic Image Synthesis offers the first comprehensive look at the radiosity method for image synthesis and the tools required to approach this elusive goal. Basic concepts and mathematical fundamentals underlying image synthesis and radiosity algorithms are covered thoroughly. (A basic knowledge of undergraduate calculus is assumed). The algorithms that have been developed to implement the radiosity method ranging from environment subdivision to final display are discussed. Successes and difficulties in implementing and using these algorithms are highlighted. Extensions to the basic radiosity method to include glossy surfaces, fog or smoke, and realistic light sources are also described. There are 16 pages of full colour images and over 100 illustrations to explain the development and show the results of the radiosity method. Results of applications of this new technology from a variety of fields are also included. Michael Cohen has worked in the area of realistic image synthesis since 1983 and was instrumental in the development of the radiosity method. He is currently an assistant professor of computer science at Princeton University. John Wallace is a software engineer at 3D/EYE, Inc., where he is the project leader for the development of Hewlett-Packard's ATRCore radiosity and ray tracing library. A chapter on the basic concepts of image synthesis is contributed by Patrick Hanrahan. He has worked on the topic of image synthesis at Pixar, where he was instrumental in the development of the Renderman software. He has also led research on the hierarchical methods at Princeton University, where he is an associate professor of computer science. All three authors have written numerous articles on radiosity that have appeared in the SIGGAPH proceedings and elsewhere. They have also taught the SIGGRAPH course on radiosity for 5 years. * The first comprehensive book written about radiosity - Features applications from the fields of computer graphics, architecture, industrial design, and related computer aided design technologies - Offers over 100 illustrations and 16 pages of full-color images demonstrating the results of radiosity methods - Contains a chapter authored by Pat Hanrahan on the basic concepts of image synthesis and a foreword by Donald Greenberg

Improving sampling and reconstruction techniques for radiosity by D Lischinski( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: "The view-independent global illumination problem is rephrased as one of determining a radiance function across each surface in the environment. A new methodology for diffuse environments, based on the sampling and reconstruction of these functions is introduced. Within this context, the following problems are investigated: (i) where the radiance functions should be sampled; (ii) how to evaluate a radiance function at each sample; and (iii) how to reconstruct a radiance function from the set of samples. The new methodology relaxes some of the assumptions built into current radiosity algorithms. Results are presented which show that the new methodology yields significantly higher accuracy than existing radiosity methods."

Complex luminaires illumination and appearance rendering by Edgar Velazquez Armendariz( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Simulating a complex luminaire is expensive and slow, even using state-ofthe-art algorithms. A more practical alternative is to use precomputation to accelerate rendering. Prior approaches cached information on an aperture surface that separates the luminaire from the scene, but many luminaires have large or ill-defined apertures leading to excessive data storage and inaccurate results. In this dissertation, we separate luminaire rendering into illumination and appearance components. A precomputation stage simulates the complex light flow inside the luminaire to generate two data structures: a set of anisotropic point lights (APLs) and a radiance volume. The APLs are located near apparent sources and represent the light leaving the luminaire, allowing its near- and farfield illumination to be accurately and efficiently computed at render time. The luminaire's appearance consists of high- and low-frequency components which are both visually important. High-frequency components are computed dynamically at render time, while the more computationally expensive, low-frequency components are approximated using the precomputed radiance volume. Results are shown for several complex luminaires, demonstrating orders of magnitude faster rendering compared to the best global illumination algorithms and higher fidelity with greatly reduced storage requirements compared to previous precomputed approaches
