HIGHLIGHTED IMPROVEMENTS

NOTES

  • FumeFX extension is now handled by Sitni Sati and can be downloaded through their support page.

INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES

  • Difference in microfacet BTDFs: Rough refraction viewed at grazing angles or using Phong-smoothed normals renders slightly darker now, especially for high roughness values. This affects the standard shader and AiMicrofacetBTDFIntegrate(), and fixes a bug in the previous BTDF sampling.
  • No labels
