Importance Sampling for Hair Scattering

An importance sampling method for the bidirectional scattering distribution function (bsdf) of hair. The main contribution of this work is to provide a sampling algorithm for hair scattering that is effective (at reducing noise), robust, simple to implement, and efficient to evaluate.

Progressive Volume Photon Tracing

A photon-tracing-based progressive rendering method for participating and non-participating media without any photon-map storage requirement. The method offers better rendering speed and better control of memory use.
