Irradiance ..
« on: March 31, 2017, 05:19:49 AM »
we have developed  a new way of lighjting the spacecraft's interiors.   Given the specifics of a very small windows, a very bright (or dark) exterior , a new lighting solution was needed to achieve photorealistic interiors. 

now we compute the total light that enters throught the window , and compute the average number of bounces until it lights the entire cockpit.  Sounds easy , but coding a shader that does that in a reasonable time is not that easy. :)

Cockpits look now something like this : (Please note the earth's luminosity bathing the interior as it enters from the windows.
