Kaleidoscopes create fascinating visual effects due to the presence of multiple mirrors placed at carefully designed distances and angles. These effects, such as infinite repeating copies of a single object, are difficult to capture. Moreover, lighting and shadow effects in kaleidoscopic scenes are highly impacted by the interaction between lights and mirrors. Such effects pose challenges to existing rendering techniques such as ray tracing and photon mapping. In this paper, we present a… CONTINUE READING
