Interactive Cinematic Lighting: Algorithms and Architectures
Lighting is a fundamental aspect of synthetic imagery.
In a cinematic setting, it defines appearance, gives mood and
enhances storytelling. At the same time, lighting computation
dominates the cost of rendering three dimensional environments.
Making this process interactive remains a challenge given the
complexity of cinematic environments and the
requirements for high fidelity.
In this talk, I will present our recent results in cinematic
lighting that achieve interactivity by developing new approximation
algorithms that can take full advantage of today's commodity hardware
architectures. I will also discuss how current architecture
trends require the definition of new formulations for lighting
computations to scale on future generations of commodity
Finally, I will briefly present results from user interfaces that
take advantage of the newly developed interactivity to
drastically reduce lighting-and-material content creation time,
one of the current roadblocks for a ubiquitous use of synthetic imagery.
