The simulation of ocean waves provides a significant challenge to computer graphics. In this article we describe an implementation of a real-time shallow ocean wave simulation using Microsoft DirectX* 10.
Most games render clouds with planar cloud textures mapping to the sky dome, which isn't visually convincing when approaching or passing through clouds. For a realistic experience in flying games, we describe a technique for dynamic volumetric clouds.
Photo-realistic rendering requires accurate simulation of light propagation according to physics laws. The best known way to solve this problem is Monte Carlo ray tracing. We describe a state-of-the-art photo-realistic Monte Carlo rendering engine.
Intel worked closely with DreamWorks Animation engineers to improve the performance of a key rendering system library by up to 35X performance improvement in some cases.
How to generate real-time adaptively sampled shadow representations for transmittance through volumetric media.
This blog series discusses some ideas and issues around rendering foliage. We provide a sample program (with source code) to demonstrate the ideas.
This blog post discusses how we organize our foliage data with patches where we separate foliage rendering into full-3D objects near the camera, and 2D billboard proxies further away (and for small objects near the camera).
