Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Disclaimer: This course willonly be held with 10+ students!

The course teaches the basics of real time ray tracing including random sampling of hemispheres, ray intersection, bounding volume hierarchies, denoising, temporal anti aliasing and different 4K-upscaling methods. Furthermore additional topics for advanced state of the art real time ray tracing including dynamic resolution scaling with variable refresh rates and machine learning based rendering for illumination of the scene and deep learning super sampling are taught. After the course participants understand all major concepts behind real time ray tracing and are able to implement them into a render engine.

Assessment and permitted materials

Four separately graded assignments are to be submitted throughout the semester.
Two written exams (one during the semester and one at the end of the semester).

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The final mark is calculated based on the two written exams (each 20%) and the four assignments (assignment 1: 10%, assignment 2: 15%, assignment 3: 20%, assignment 4: 15%).
To achieve a positive grading students
- have to submit a solution for each assignment, and
- need to reach at least 50% of the maximum points achievable over all written exams.

Gradings are computed from the weighted sum:
89% <= P <= 100% Sehr Gut (1)
76% <= P < 89% Gut (2)
63% <= P < 76% Befriedigend (3)
50% <= P < 63% Genügend (4)
0% <= P < 50% Nicht Genügend (5)

Examination topics

Real Time Ray Tracing, Dynamic Resolution Scaling, Machine Learning based Rendering
