Paul Rademacher, Jed Lengyel, Edward Cutrell & Turner Whitted
One of the main goals in realistic rendering is to generate images that are indistinguishable from photographs – but how do observers decide whether an image is photographic or computer-generated? If this perceptual process were understood, then rendering algorithms could be developed to directly target these cues.
