Talk Title: Volume Render

ing in Realistic Image Synthesis

Talk Abstract:
While there are m

any powerful techniques for rendering
realistic surfaces there is much
less known about effectively
rendering volumes such as smoke clouds

and fog. I will
discuss some of my recent work on highly accurate bat

rendering as well as discussing the state of the field for

ractive volume rendering.
