New Blog Series: Lightmap Baking and Spherical Gaussians

So nearly year and a half ago myself and Dave Neubelt gave a presentation at SIGGRAPH where we described the approach that we developed for approximating incoming radiance using Spherical Gaussians in both our lightmaps and 3D probe grids. We had planned on releasing a source code demo as well as course notes that would serve as a full set […]
