Request: Old Ashdown radiosity scenes

Postby JasonSmith » Thu Oct 16, 2014 4:26 am

Hey everyone-
I'm working on resurrecting a hemicube radiosity renderer I wrote a long time ago. My reference at that time was "Radiosity, A Programmer's Perspective" by Ian Ashdown.

He included a scene room.wld with the book (render attached). But the book also mentions others, like a cornell box called cornell.wld.

Since I have this thing running again, I'd love to generate some more images.

Does anyone have any more ".WLD" scenes from the late 90's I could try? His renderer was called "Helios", but I haven't found anything by searching for Helios scenes.

I have the book but it was sold with a 3.5" floppy and even if I find the floppy, it is likely to be not readable anymore (after 20 year). And even if it is readable ...who has a 3.5" floppy reader anymore ?

Thanks for the reply.

I found a zip of the floppy, but it only has room.wld on it. Maybe he had some scenes he didn't publicize for one reason or another.
