Have you ever wondered what a BVH, a BSDF or MIS is? Or just what your computer does when you hit the render button?
Have you ever wondered what a BVH, a BSDF or MIS is? Or just what your computer does when you hit the render button? Then this talk is for you! In it, I’ll explain the basics of what Cycles, Blender’s path tracing render engine, does, how it does it and why it doesn’t (yet!) do some things as well as you’d like it to. No math or code will be involved, and no previous knowledge of path tracing is assumed, so the talk is not just for existing developers but for all existing and future users of Cycles as well as anyone who is interested in Path Tracers as general.
