A number of techniques exist for approximating the rendering equation in order to create realistic detailed images. Photon mapping is a method that allows for the accurate rendering of a wide range of reflective and refractive phenomena. We explore the basis of the photon mapping technique with the goal of constructing a system for rendering such effects… CONTINUE READING
