Abstract

In this paper, we combine path tracing and photon-mapping into one single method that makes use of the strength of each approach. Diffuse paths are evaluated with ray-tracing while caustics effects are computed using progressive photon mapping. This is a low noise, efficient, progressive algorithm w...

Abstract: In this paper, we combine path tracing and photon-mapping into one single method that makes use of the strength of each approach. Diffuse paths are evaluated with ray-tracing while caustics effects are computed using progressive photon mapping. This is a low noise, efficient, progressive algorithm with vanishing bias.
