Two Minute Papers – Manipulating Photorealistic Renderings

Photorealistic rendering (also called global illumination) enables us to see how digital objects would look like in real life. It is an amazingly powerful tool in the hands of a professional artist, who can create breathtaking images or animations with. However, for the longest time, artists didn’t use it in the movie industry because it did not offer a great artistic freedom – after all, it works according to the laws of physics, which are exact. This piece of work enables us to apply artistic edits to photorealistic renderings easily and intuitively. I believe this one has the potential to single-handedly change the landscape of photorealistic rendering on a production scale.
