Abstract

In the present paper, we describe the main features of the rendering general system ALEPHRad v 2.0 based in illusion and physical techniques for the simulation of light transfer as well as the techniques it will include. This kind of system may be useful for applications like: Architectural design, complex lighting systems, lighting industry and special effects. 1. Introduction Realism is a vague term when applied to computer graphics. It can mean anything from the rigourous simulation of the physical phenomena of light bouncing through an environment to the illusion of realism created by empirical approximations. In the former case, we are attempting
