Cull that cone! Improved cone/spotlight visibility tests for tiled and clustered lighting
In this blog post, I will present some common spotlight culling techniques and propose one small improvement that is able to correct results of cheap, tiled / clustered culling on the CPU/GPU with almost negligible ALU cost. If you know … Continue reading

Small float formats – R11G11B10F precision
While this post is not yet dithering related, it is in a way a part of my series about dithering. You can check index of all parts here or check the previous part. I will talk here about use of … Continue reading

Dithering part three – real world 2D quantization dithering
In previous two parts of this blog post miniseries I described basic uses mentioned blue noise definition, referenced/presented 2 techniques of generating blue noise and one of many general purpose highfrequency lowdiscrepancy sampling sequences. In this post, we will look … Continue reading

Dithering part two – golden ratio sequence, blue noise and highpassandremap
In previous part of the miniseries I covered dithering definition and how dithering changes error characteristics of simple 1D quantization and functions. In this part I will try to look at what blue noise is, but first wanted to have a … Continue reading

Dithering in games – mini series
This an opening post of mini blog post series about various uses of dithering for quantization and sampling in video games. It is something most of us use intuitively in every day work, so wanted to write down some of … Continue reading

Image dynamic range
Intro This post is a second part of my miniseries about dynamic range in games. In this part I would like to talk a bit about dynamic range, contrast/gamma and viewing conditions. You can find the other post in the series here and … Continue reading

Localized tonemapping – is global exposure and global tonemapping operator enough for video games?
In this blog post, I wanted to address something that I was thinking about for many years – since starting working on rendering in video games and with HDR workflows and having experience with various photographic techniques. For the title … Continue reading
