Real-time Radiance Caching using Chrominance Compression
This paper introduces the idea of expressing the radiance field in luminance/chrominance values and encoding the directional chrominance in lower detail. Reducing the spherical harmonics coefficientsExpand

Inverse lighting design using a coverage optimization strategy
TLDR
We propose a hierarchical light clustering approach that prioritizes light coverage and overcomes limitations of previous methods in environments with high occlusion or structural complexity. Expand

Inverse Light Design for High-occlusion Environments
TLDR
We present an automatic approach to the inverse light source emittance and positioning problem, based on a layered linear / non-linear optimization strategy and the introduction of a special light source indexing according to the compatibility of each individual luminary position with the desired illumination.

Light Optimization for Detail Highlighting
TLDR
In this paper we propose an effective technique for the automatic arrangement of spot lights and other luminaires on or near user‐provided arbitrary mounting surfaces in order to highlight the geometric details of complex objects. Expand

Detail Highlighting using a Shadow Edge Histogram
TLDR
We propose a simple and effective technique for setting up a configuration of directional light sources to accentuate the prominent geometric features of complex objects by increasing the local shadow contrast near them. Expand

A Generic Physically-based Approach to the Opening Design Problem
TLDR
We present a physically-based solution to the opening design problem, i.e. the goal-driven process of defining openings on the input geometry given a set of lighting constraints, to better exploit natural daylight. Expand
Illumination‐Guided Furniture Layout Optimization
TLDR
In this paper, we introduce a robust method for furniture layout optimization guided by illumination constraints. Expand
