New software will let artists control how light interacts with objects | Ars Technica

Animators will now be able to precisely control how microscopic particles interact with light in their renderings of objects,thanks to a research collaboration between computer scientists at Dartmouth University and staff scientists at Pixar and Disney. The team will describe this new work next week at the SIGGRAPH Asia event in Tokyo, Japan; a paper is also forthcoming in the journal Transactions on Graphics .
