New ?? pathtracing technique that deals way better with complex situations - Specular Manifold Sampling

Hey, this is for Dade or any other of you that are interested in new rendering techniques, not sure if this could be implemented in LuxCore, or if it has any drawbacks, but it seems to be astonishing :)

It's called Specular Manifold Sampling.

Just wonder why this devs said this Maximilian Tarpini : https://twitter.com/twominutepapers/sta ... 8991547402
Let’s face it .. MEMTL is just a proof of concept, a wonderful theoretical framework that has almost no practical use. Test/implement the tech.. don’t just look at the shiny pics ;)
I was more impressed by this one Even if i don't know if it is GPU friendly : https://twitter.com/PGrittmann/status/1 ... 5958672384

Interesting, and yes, I'm not sure either if the other technique is GPU compatible or not.
