  • Photon Differential Splatting for Rendering Caustics 

    Frisvad, Jeppe Revall; Schjøth, Lars; Erleben, Kenny; Sporring, Jon (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    We present a photon splatting technique which reduces noise and blur in the rendering of caustics. Blurring of illumination edges is an inherent problem in photon splatting, as each photon is unaware of its neighbours when ...
  • A Survey on Position-Based Simulation Methods in Computer Graphics 

    Bender, Jan; Müller, Matthias; Otaduy, Miguel A.; Teschner, Matthias; Macklin, Miles (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    The dynamic simulation of mechanical effects has a long history in computer graphics. The classical methods in this field discretize Newton's second law in a variety of Lagrangian or Eulerian ways, and formulate forces ...
  • Out-of-Core Construction of Sparse Voxel Octrees 

    Baert, J.; Lagae, A.; Dutré, Ph. (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    Voxel-based rendering has recently received significant attention due to its potential in the context of efficiently rendering massively large and highly detailed scenes. Unfortunately, few scenes are available in the form ...
  • Symmetry-Aware Template Deformation and Fitting 

    Kurz, C.; Wu, X.; Wand, M.; Thormählen, T.; Kohli, P.; Seidel, H.-P. (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    In this paper, we propose a new method for reconstructing 3D models from a noisy and incomplete 3D scan and a coarse template model. The main idea is to maintain characteristic high-level features of the template that ...
  • Robust Detection and Segmentation for Diagnosis of Vertebral Diseases Using Routine MR Images 

    Zukic, D enan; Vlasák, Ale; Egger, Jan; Horínek, Daniel; Nimsky, Christopher; Kolb, Andreas (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    The diagnosis of certain spine pathologies, such as scoliosis, spondylolisthesis and vertebral fractures, is part of the daily clinical routine. Very frequently, magnetic resonance image data are used to diagnose these ...
  • Flux-Limited Diffusion for Multiple Scattering in Participating Media 

    Koerner, D.; Portsmouth, J.; Sadlo, F.; Ertl, T.; Eberhardt, B. (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    For the rendering of multiple scattering effects in participating media, methods based on the diffusion approximation are an extremely efficient alternative to Monte Carlo path tracing. However, in sufficiently transparent ...
  • SATO: Surface Area Traversal Order for Shadow Ray Tracing 

    Nah, Jae-Ho; Manocha, Dinesh (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    We present the surface area traversal order (SATO) metric to accelerate shadow ray traversal. Our formulation uses the surface area of each child node to compute the TO. In this metric, we give a traversal priority to the ...
  • Distributed Out-of-Core Stochastic Progressive Photon Mapping 

    Günther, Tobias; Grosch, Thorsten (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    At present, stochastic progressive photon mapping (SPPM) is one of the most comprehensive methods for a consistent global illumination computation. Even though the number of photons is unlimited due to their progressive ...

    Bene , Jan; Wilkie, Alexander; Krivánek, Jaroslav (The Eurographics Association and John Wiley and Sons Ltd., 2014)
    We present a model for growing procedural road networks in and close to cities. The main idea of our paper is that a city cannot be meaningfully simulated without taking its neighbourhood into account. A simple traffic ...
