Re: Geometry factor for parallel light?

I'm not sure if I understand your question, but I think 1 / r^2 term should always be considered and is implicitly considered if you trace a path from the light source even if it is parallel light. Light path construction is performed as follows: ⋅ sample a point y0 on the light with pdf p...

Re: Why is volumetric emission proportional to absorption coefficient?

My current thinking process when reading the paper you lastly mentioned is like following: 0. However, the mental model behind radiance transfer is not one that considers the interaction of individual particles. - Yes, I know. 1. eq. (1) says that contribution from source radiance Lm(x', w) is propo...

Re: Why is volumetric emission proportional to absorption coefficient?

Thanks for reply. I can find the volumetric emission term which proportional to absorption coefficient for example in, Jensen's Photon Mapping book, Spectral and Decomposition Tracking paper or Wojciech Jarosz's thesis. In the Jarosz's thesis reference, there is the following sentence by the equatio...

Why is volumetric emission proportional to absorption coefficient?

Hi, I have a simple question as in the title. Why is volumetric emission proportional to absorption coefficient? I often see the volumetric emission term is written as volumetric_emission_term_1.png I can also see another representation, volumetric emittance function (e.g. in Mark Pauly's thesis: Ro...

Re: Weighted delta tracking question

The reason why I wrote 1 / (1 - P_n(x)) is that PBRT-v3's delta tracking implementation only cares about the interaction is null-collision or not, while the integral formulation in the paper simultaneously cares about three types of interaction (scattering, absorption(emission), null-collision). The...

Re: Weighted delta tracking question

Hi, In my understanding, T_r / p_surf becomes the weight computed by cumulatively multiplying the following single step weight: single_step_weight.png as in the SD tracking paper. If this is implemented by following PBRT's interface for example for GridDensityMedium::Sample(), it returns the above w...

Cool ;)

What is the material?
Do you implement Hero wavelength spectral sampling?

Re: Multi-wavelength free path sampling using ratio tracking

Nice work! :D Maybe it's also necessary to also consider the compensation for passtrough rays that leave the volume. Right, of course it needs consideration for such rays as you say. It corresponds to my code at l.80 in the current implementation: https://github.com/shocker-0x15/SLR/blob/master/libS...

Multi-wavelength free path sampling using ratio tracking

Hi, I'm curious about whether using ratio tracking for estimating Monte Carlo constribution (f(x) / p(x), not transmittance) with delta tracking for heterogeneous media is unbiased. We can get a MC contribution of free path sampling by delta tracking for a wavelength used for the procedure. There is...
