Homework 4 - Scene Sampling Inventor Application and Lightfield Demonstration

This program reads in a scene consisting of spheres with custom emittance distribution functions. From a center sphere it then begins sampling the world, drawing a sample on the sphere of the same color as it sees in that direction.

It does this in an interactive fashion and looks quite cool.

There appears to be a slight bug in the placement of the cylinders.

Scene description

Lightfield 1

I created this lightfield from an array of photographs of a real life Cornell-like box. It didn't come out too well.
