The CSE 168 Final Project

Grant Van Horn Connor Worley

For our final project we decided to implement photon mapping and caustics to display assorted starfish under the ocean. We implemented caustics, Beer's law, and photon mapping towards this end.

We rendered our scene in our newton 5_0 ray tracer which is an extended version of newton 4_0 which is a trimmed down port from newton 1_1 which is was a deprecated version of newton 1_0 which was developed from the provided Miro base code provided by Henrik Wann Jensen for the class.
