Advanced Lighting and Materials with Shaders by Kelly Dempski

By Kelly Dempski

This e-book is all approximately extremes. It describes lights and fabrics in extremely simple phrases after which proceeds to checklist the advanced equations concerned. There does not appear to be any center ground.

I take into account that steel is glossy and that tree bark is tough and bumpy. yet going from that to the advanced equations is sort of a jump. i used to be hoping for a e-book that defined items relating to the settings that 3d courses like 3ds Max use to create their materials...Diffuse, Specular, Glossiness, and so on. etc.

I may simply suggest this booklet to you in the event you could make use of the complicated equations used to supply practical lighting.

Sample text

8. 8 is a simple scene rendered with a large field of view (80 degrees). Changing the field of view angle is called zooming. Making the angle smaller is called zooming in, and making the angle larger is called zooming out. 9. 9 is the same scene rendered with a smaller field of view (45 degrees). These two images clearly show the zoom effect in the pinhole camera model. 35 Chapter 3 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 3 The Different Types of Rays From the brief explanation of the algorithm that I gave in the previous section, you can see that there are four main types of rays involved in the calculation of the color of a pixel: primary, shadow/light, reflection, and refraction.

Realistic scattering and absorption is not typically used in game engines because of the relatively high computational cost. Also, the overall effect is minimal unless the scene contains heavy fog or smoke. I will revisit this topic in more depth in Chapter 5, but the important point to remember is that fog and smoke will affect attenuation. In some cases you might want to implement a physically based effect, and in other cases you might want to simply tweak attenuation values to approximate its effects.

Indeed, let’s take the example of two parallel mirrors facing each other. When a reflective ray is traced from one of the mirrors, there is a possibility that this ray might be normal to the surface of the mirror. When hitting the opposite mirror, the algorithm will create a new reflective ray, normal to the surface of that mirror and pointing in the direction of the opposite mirror (the first mirror). At this stage, the ray will be trapped, and the recursion process will never end. Every single ray traced from one mirror to the other will lead to the creation of a new ray on the opposite mirror, and so on, and so on.
