Flux-Limited Diffusion for Multiple Scattering in Participating Media

Computer Graphics Forum, vol. 33, no. 6, pp. 178–189, 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 regions, classical diffusion approximation suff... [More ...]
