Source code information


The project's webpage links to mitsuba, but no microfacet method in mitsuba references the paper (it references other microfacets papers). The examples to reproduce the experiments are not provided, so I was not able to reproduce the results of the paper. To compile mitsuba on ubuntu 18.04, in config.py I changed -std=c++11 into -std=gnu++11 ; in mitsuba/build/release/mtsgui I changed QtCore, QtOpenGL (and so on) into Qt5Core, Qt5OpenGL (and so on) ; in data/scons/qt5.py,line 392 changed QtCore into Qt5Core.

There appears to be an implementation of the paper by a different author: https://github.com/lxs137/glint_mitsuba
