Spherical Harmonics for view-dependent effects in research of learned radiance fields (NeRF, 3D Gaussian Splatting)

In research on making the rendering of learned radiance fields (e.g., neural radiance fields) faster, many approaches use Spherical Harmonics (SH) to approximate view-dependent color (e.g. baking SH ...

alternative to spherical harmonics to model radiance aproximation, optimized for real-time evaluation

I'm looking for a compact representation of radiance over the hemisphere that is also performant to evaluate in realtime (in a pixel shader). The purpose of it is to compress surface lightfields so ...

Different basis from spherical harmonics to represent light?

There's a lot of research being done in 3D shape analysis when it comes to PDE methods. Recently I've been reading quite a bit of literature on this subject and recent trends in this subject propose ...

Baked anisotropic filtering using spherical harmonics

I want to learn is it good or bad idea. Let's assume video RAM is not a problem. For source texture create a texture of texels: spherical functions. Spherical functions defined by small arrays of ...
