SkillsCast

Ray-Tracing for Photorealistic Scenes

16th August 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at Ray-Tracing for Photorealistic Scenes

This meetup will be on Ray-Tracing. Ray-tracing is a powerful method that has been for decades to create photorealistic images by trying to simulate how light bounces around a scene.

Tariq's talk will focus on gently introducing the basic concepts and algorithm for ray-tracing, but also give a taste of more sophisticated methods used in modern rendering:

• the core idea - following rays and their reflections

• some of the simple algorithms and maths

• simple Python code to demonstrate the core idea

• a short discussion of some additional methods - reflections, haze, texture

• free open source tools you can use yourself to create raytraced scenes - e.g. povray, blender

• a taste of modern approaches to rendering realistic scenes, such as radiosity
