Week 10

Soft Shadows

First attempt at the soft shadows left something lacking in the center. Values of 1.0 were not being drawn.

Made some adjustments to the intensity calculation and fixed it. Returned a better result.

Moved the point light to be centered above the center sphere to test accuracy. Lost specularity! Jitter amount is obviously too much.

Turns out my light intensity was just blowing out the material. Hmmmm... this doesn't seem right. I don't think my intensity is being calculated right.


Anti-aliasing with 8 samples per pixel. Something is acting stupid. I am going to play with my scene to get some diff light angles.


Moved the light towards the camera.

Next Week

  • fix light intensity
  • reflections
  • depth of field
  • directional light
