Hi, guys! I'm a boy interested in CG tech. It's very amazing the new GI renderer can generate such vivid films that I can't distinguish them from reality. Great job!
I'm eager to learn how to write a good home-made renderer close to the new magic GI renderer. Could someone appoint me some stage-of-the-art public papers to read? Then I can follow them.
I implemented Keller's well-known "Instant radiosity". However, the result is a bit far from reality. I want to improve it but there are too many papers produced every year for me to select the real pearls from them. So I need a master's help.
I don't know whether it proper to present such a thread here, since it somewhat makes me resemble a spy I'm surely not, only an amateur. I just hope you can tell me some *public* papers to read thanks.

To get the good stuff, read the papers published by Pixar researchers. Also take a look at the Irradiance Map technolgy, which is being used by Vray and obviously by the new AR.

Check out (Quasi) Monte Carlo sampling algorithms. That´s what all the state-of-the-art engines use. However, it´s a wide field and there is not only 1 paper. It´s always a sum of papers that make up the good implementation.
