Rendering
Ray Tracing and Radiosity: Ready For Production?

Ray tracing and radiosity are known as rendering techniques that produce the most realistic images possible in computer graphics. But to what extent are they being used for commercial production? What are the benefits and problems for companies who have tried to use them? This panel answered these questions with presentations and discussions by digital artists and companies that have actually implemented these rendering methods in their film and commercial work, and dissenting views from those working at the alternatives.
