Re: A Path tracer

I rederived my plane - ray intersection after not being able to get rid of those circular regions. I must have messed them up in some other creative way since I made sure to normalize that vector. Waiting on another render, though the first results are hopeful! Thanks for taking the time to help me ...

Re: A Path tracer

I think I transposed the color of the object versus it's emitted color when I was reading some of the papers. I changed that and am now waiting on a image with 1024 samples to finish. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for some papers to read on multithreading this thing. I tried using s...

Re: A Path tracer

Here is a single white light in the center of the screen. http://i.imgur.com/zmOYx.jpg 128 samples per pixel I added in a simple jitter to rays as they leave the camera. It seems to improve the image quality Heres the same 3 colored sphere picture with the new jittered rays http://i.imgur.com/iySGz....

Re: A Path tracer

hmm, I think that might be caused from my poor use of convert to make the ppm's I am output into jpgs for the internet... Maybe I should switch over pngs?

Re: A Path tracer

Made more progress last night before bed. http://i.imgur.com/1tPT6.jpg 1024 samples Turns out I had forgotten to normalize a the direction vector for my rays as the camera was generating them. oops haha. I think the next thing on the list to due is triangles and some sort of jittering of the produce...

A Path tracer

Trying out making a Path Tracer after reading around a bit. I think I might have messed up a bit so far. There "should" be two spheres(one red, one blue) on top of a plane. Lets see if I can fix it. Please excuse the jpg quality, I haven't gotten used to using convert yet. http://i.imgur.com/i8Mci.j...
