Abstract

This proposal describes a project for rendering photorealistic models of plants supporting advanced lighting effects:  global illumination, color bleeding, and subsurface scattering.  We can achieve low-noise renderings of complex plant models by applying a photon mapping algorithm, whose computational requirements are much lower than pure Monte Carlo techniques.  Applying the photon mapping process to models generated with the cpfg language will allow us to build complex plant models exhibiting better light interactions and softer, more organic surfaces.
