The corpora allata (CA) of Manduca sexta larvae become incapable of synthesizing juvenile hormone (JH) early in the wandering stage of the last larval stadium. They then switch to the synthesis and release of JH acids. This change in CA activity is induced by an inhibitory factor--allatinhibin (AI)--from the brain. AI activity is present in the fifth (Vth)(More)
The sheer size of texture data and the complexity of custom shaders in production rendering were the two major hurdles in the way of GPU acceleration. Requiring only tiny modifications of an existing production renderer, we are able to accelerate the computation of global illumination by more than an order of magnitude.
