Lessons Learned and Improvements when Building Screen-Space Samplers with Blue-Noise Error Distribution

05/26/2021 ∙ by Laurent Belcour, et al. ∙ 0

Recent work has shown that the error of Monte-Carlo rendering is visually more acceptable when distributed as blue-noise in screen-space. Despite recent efforts, building a screen-space sampler is still an open problem. In this talk, we present the lessons we learned while improving our previous screen-space sampler. Specifically: we advocate for a new criterion to assess the quality of such samplers; we introduce a new screen-space sampler based on rank-1 lattices; we provide a parallel optimization method that is compatible with a GPU implementation and that achieves better quality; we detail the pitfalls of using such samplers in renderers and how to cope with many dimensions; and we provide empirical proofs of the versatility of the optimization process.
