Building one tree in a CG environment can be an interesting story to tell, but creating the Amazon Jungle in "Rio2" is a much larger tale.

This talk by Chia-Kai Liang, PhD (Architect, Computational Photography at Lytro, Inc.) will describe a light transport framework for understanding the fundamental limits of light field camera resolution. The new framework includes many factors that were not included in existing models. For example, he shows that the 4D spatial-angular sensitivity profile of the photosensor must be considered in the performance analysis. The new framework is used to make many predictions that are closer to the observations and contradict existing models.
