Re: Path Space Regularization (aka the solution to SDS paths)

I think the paper says about the same what I wrote, just a little vaguely worded: Our proposed method combines the simulated annealing optimization method with MCMC integration. Intuitively, the “sharp peaks” of the integrand are regularized (smoothed out) in the beginning of the integration such th...

It is exactly the contrary according the paper (and it makes sense).
You mean the paper or my idea makes sense? :)

BTW refined my above description a bit.

Re: Path Space Regularization (aka the solution to SDS paths)

That's what I've been thinking about the last few days. Doesn't PSR mollification have to happen during MLT small mutation ? Large mutation phaseses dont know about each other, so an old phase wont help the next to find a path... I mean, the reduction of the mollification bandwidth has to happen be...

Re: Light tracing with cache?

... tracing an eye path of random length, trace a light path of random length and connect them (it is BiDir without MIS). It will render all stuff (but SDS paths) with a lot more noise than BiDir+MIS (but faster). If you add direct light sampling to the eye path to reduce noise ... you hand with Hy...

Re: Path Space Regularization (aka the solution to SDS paths)

...The under water caustics looks good from the very beginning. So it uses precalculation like PGI indirect cache. Maybe it could be sharper if it used the info from the Light Tracing which runs continuously, parallel with the eye tracing. ... and I belive indirect cache could also benefit from thi...

Re: PhotonGI cache

I have this idea that might be a bit stupid but maybe not: Would it be possible to control after how many bounces is photongi used? Maybe this would help with some reflection artifacting or leaks? So maybe have 1 or 2 bounces brute force and afterwards sample from cache(a control exposed to the use...
