interesting about adaptive sampling

Yeah, lots of good stuff in that blog, definitely hope Antti & co. are reading that one (esp. the part about avoiding hard-coding the BSDF in with path-tracing, that's an important scalability and growth detail for the reasons he discusses). The author's take on adaptive sampling is also quite interesting/useful, as you mentioned. Overall a great read for anyone trying to understand the internals of coding such render engines. The Disney articles explain how path-tracers generally work, while Yining Karl Li's blog is more about the choices and decisions developers face during the actual design and implementation of such a path-tracer.

Yes I hoped Antti would spot this post and read it. I would email directly if I knew his mail. Glad you posted this comment and hopefully reading it will perk interest. Lots of pretty pictures too :D
