Re: My Reformulation of the Rendering Equation (+Application

Ian, you rock! Implicit terms in mathematics are the bane of my 3D rendering existence. Note to others: please always, always , ALWAYS show the "way too much detail, everything is explicit" version first for mathematical concepts, in concrete form, and then, and only then, show the simplified versio...

Re: Population Monte Carlo Sampling

Adaptive methods introduce bias, in many cases they can be even inconsistent, but if that bias or final error can be set to any desired small value (exactly or with some certainty) before rendering starts, then it will be much better than any unbiased algorithm which usually tells you nothing about...
