New feature: window framebuffer displaying progressive refinement of the solution during rendering.
- MetropoLight is a simple freeware global illumination rendering program that uses the Metropolis Light Transport algorithm to render images.MLT is a Monte Carlo method for solving the light transport problem. It is inspired by the Metropolis sampling method in computational physics.In short, a sequence of light transport paths is generated (based on Monte Carlo Markov Chain sampling) by randomly mutating a single current path. The probability density of visiting each path is proportional to its contribution to the final image. This algorithm has the particularity to be unbiased and can be orders of magnitude more efficient than previous unbiased approaches. It is highly recommended for complex and delicate indirect lightingI developed this small rendering project to study and to familiarize with this new approach in random walk global illumination algorithms. Metropolis Light Transport will be one of the numerous algorithms implemented into my "next generation" renderer (codename: A.E.R.E.) Although some additional features will be progressively implemented to complete the project, MetropoLight doesn’t claim to become a sophisticated renderer. It just has to be considered as an experimental rendering tool.
Download Free CGToolbar: CGToolbar is extremely useful and must have tool for CG Artists, designers, Animators, VFX and 3d professionals. CGToolbar is one of its kind (unique)- probably the first toolbar which is loaded with custom features,built by focusing on the needs of a computer graphics professional and to cater the whole CG community. This small but powerful Tool bring all the resources a CG artists ever need at their fingertips by bridging the gap between various useful CG Portals. Besides all this, its offers all the features that a normal toolbar may have. For more information and free download of CGToolbar (IE / FireFox), please - Click Here!
