Problem statement
  • GI rendering in participating media:
    • Free path between scattering points
    • Absorption or scattering
    • Scattering direction

contribution of this paper
Contribution of this paper
  • Sampling scheme for inhomogeneous media
    • Generalization of Woodcock tracking and ray marching
    • Involves them as two extreme cases
    • Offers new possibilities between them
  • Application for high resolution voxel arrays
  • Application for procedurally generated media of ”unlimited resolution”

Probability of hitting a real particle:

(t)/((t)+virtual (t))=(t)/comb(t)

sampling with virtual particles
Sampling with virtual particles
  • Find comb(t) = (t)+virtual(t)
    • upper bounding function extinction comb(t),
    • Analytic evaluation:
  • Sample with comb(t)
  • Real collision with probability (t)/comb(t)
challenges
Challenges
  • For the volume density find an analytically integrable sharp upperbound
  • Voxel arrays: constant or linear upper-bound in super-voxels
  • Procedural definition: depends on the actual procedure
    • We demonstrate it with Perlin noise

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Handling of inhomogeneous media by mixing virtual particles that
    • Simplify free path length sampling
    • Do not change the radiance
  • Compromise between ray marching and Woodcock tracking
    • Much better than ray marching in high resolution media
    • Much better than Woodcock tracking in strongly inhomogeneous media
