  • This paper describes a physically-based rendering system tailored to the demands of lighting design and architecture. [...] Key Method The simulation blends deterministic and stochastic ray-tracing techniques to achieve the best balance between speed and accuracy in its local and global illumination methods. Some of the more interesting techniques are outlined, with references to more detailed descriptions elsewhere. Finally, examples are given of successful applications of this free software by others.Expand Abstract
