Fruit fly eye - DPP

Post by kempsi » Sat May 08, 2021 4:52 pm

Hello there!
I'm really impressed by the images on this forum - many look like real-life photos and some are just absolutely beautiful.
What I've done looks simple in comparison:
The model geometry

With LuxCoreRender, the deep pseudopupil (DPP) - superimposed, ~10x magnified virtual image of the rhabdomere tips

Some video animations

So it is a 3D model of the fruit fly compound eye that, as in real-life, produces the deep pseudopupil (DPP) when
focused at the eye center with narrow depth-of-field (thanks to LuxCoreRender ;) ). We used it in a scientific paper (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101 ... 3.442473v1) mainly to illustrate the real-life experiments.

Great stuff!
Always nice to see LuxCore bein applied in scientific contexts :)
