Project Updates

Posted on December 23, 2010 by Raffi

Now that I’m home for the holidays, I thought I would post updates (and new images!) of the projects I’ve been working on this past semester.

For the motion blur ray tracing project, the coding portion is essentially complete and we’ve been working on the experimentation. We have a large array of test scenes that have been generated using a variety of parameters, and we’re performing user trials with a maximum likelihood algorithm for finding the just noticeable difference in noise with respect to those different parameters.

The image on the right shows one of my favorite images I’ve encountered during the development of the AI Fractal Art Generator (with some color correction and cropping applied). This project used machine learning techniques to generate ray-traced images of fractals, and you can find more details and images on the project page.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
