Manifold exploration: a Markov Chain Monte Carlo technique for rendering scenes with difficult specular transport

It is a long-standing problem in unbiased Monte Carlo methods for rendering that certain difficult types of light transport paths, particularly those involving viewing and illumination along paths containing specular or glossy surfaces, cause unusably slow convergence. In this paper we introduce Manifold Exploration, a new way of handling specular paths in… CONTINUE READING
