advanced rendering for AutoCAD
Again, very nice!
Thanks Roy, nice fonction, but, for your health, you have to sleep a little bit... But from my point of view, keep on...
Seriously, does this tool work for the reflection (caustic?) of the water of interior pool on the ceilling or the wall? Not very good explained, but I hope you understand what I mean.
Yes-- you're getting both reflected and refracted caustics from the glass ball, for example. For physically-based materials the amount of reflection depends on the IOR of the material-- in this case water (1.33). You can also "fake" it by adding some extra reflectivity to the water.
One very exciting thing about this algorithm is the reflection of the caustic made by the glass ball in the window-- this particular light path is very difficult to capture, even by programs like Maxwell.
Still working out how to do this stuff with daylighting, BTW....
