Which Pick some. Randomness helps. Monte Carlo. Still a research topic. Monte How many rays? How Derek Juba and Matt Helton UVa Intro to Gaphics, Fall 2003 Depends on the scene. Still a topic of research debate. topic Courtyard House with Curved Elements Complex Indirect Illumination Mies van der Rohe Modeling: Stephen Duck; Rendering: Henrik Wann Jensen Raytracing vs. Radiosity Both accomplish global illumination • Radiosity – Compute energy transfer between finite-sized patches of surfaces in the scene Which patches? Must subdivide the scene Must somehow How does energy transfer between patches? Approximating models Still an area of research Which is better? Raytraced Herik Wann Jensen Radiosity • Radiosity captures the sum of light transfer well – But it models all surfaces as diffuse reflectors – Can’t model specular reflections or refraction Images are viewpoint independent • Raytracing captures the complex behavior of light rays as they reflect and Raytracing refract refract – Works best with specular surfaces. Why? Diffuse surface converts light ray into many. Ray tracing follows Diffuse one ray and does not capture the full effect of the diffusion. one Must use ambient term to replace absent diffusion Lighting Example: Cornell Box Surface Color Lighting Example: Diffuse Reflection Surface Color Diffuse Shading Lighting Example: Shadows No Shadows Shadows Lighting Example: Soft Shadows Hard Shadows Point Light Source Soft Shadows Area Light Source Radiosity: Cornell Experment Measured Simulated Program of Computer Graphics Cornell University Radiosity: Cornell Experiment Measured Simulated Difference Very Early Radiosity Parry Moon and Domina Spencer Lighting Design (1948 ­ MIT) Very Early Radiosity Goral et al. 1984. • Note the color bleeding Early Radiosity Shenchang Eric Chang et al., Cornell 1988 The ‘Rendering Equation’ Jim Kajiya (Current head of Microsoft Research) developed this in Jim 1986 1986 I ( x, x') = g ( x, x ') ε ( x, x') + ∫ ρ( x, x' , x' ') I ( x' , x' ') dx ' ' S I(x, x’) is the total intensity from point x’ to x g(x, x’) = 0 when x/x’ are occluded and 1/d2 otherwise (d = distance between x and x’) between ε (x, x’) is the intensity emitted by x’ to x ρ (x, x’,x’’) is the intensity of light reflected from x’’ to x through x’ S is all points on all surfaces Radiosity All surfaces are assumed perfectly diffuse • What does that mean about property of lighting in scene? – Light is reflected equally in all directions • Same lighting independent of viewing angle / location – Only a subset of the Rendering Equation Diffuse-diffuse surface lighting effects possible Radiosity Terms Radiant power [flux] (Φ ) • Rate at which light energy is transmitted (in watts = joules/sec). Radiant Intensity (I) • Power radiated onto a unit solid angle in direction Power (in watts/steradian) (in Radiance (L) • Intensity per unit projected surface area Intensity (in watts/m2steradian) (in Irradiance (E) • Incident flux density on a locally planar area Incident (in watts/m2 ) (in Radiosity (B) • Exitant flux density from a locally planar area (in watts/ m 2 ) Basic elements of radiosity Assume surface is Lambertian • dB is the visible radiant flux emanating dB from the surface point in the direction given by the angles θ and φ within a differential solid angle dω per unit time, differential per unit of surface area per Basic elements of radiosity The intensity, I • The diffuse radiation in direction (θ, φ) – Radiant energy Radiant per unit time per projected area per unit solid angle I dB d!

Radiosity equation Permit surface k to emit light: Bk E k Hk Hk X j B j Fj k Ek = 0 if surface k is not a light Ek = rate of energy emitted by surface k per unit area (watts/m2) area Radiosity equation Permit surface k to have variable reflectance B k E k ½H k k ρ k is the reflectivity factor for surface k (percent of incident light that is reflected in all directions) incident Radiosity equation For a single surface, k Bk E k ½ k X j Bj Fj k • Note: Fkk = 0 because planar and convex surfaces cannot “see” themselves “see” How will we compute this for all surfaces? Radiosity equation Obtaining illumination effects for all surfaces in Obtaining the rendered volume the X Bk E k ½ Bj Fj k k • Find Bk for all surfaces, k • What do we know ahead of time? – Ek, ρk, Fjk j Radiosity equation Consider three surfaces B : B F ; B F ; B : B F ; B F ; B : B F ; B F ; Three equations and three unknowns!

Instead, iterate: Instead, bk+1 = e – Fbk • Multiplication of sparse matrix is O(n), not O(n2) • Stop when bk+1 = bk Back to the Form Factors Fij = energy transfer from surface i to j energy = percent of energy emanating from i that is incident on j F i;j This is a good image from Foley et al.
