Parallel-split shadow maps for large-scale virtual environments
Shadowing effects dramatically enhance the realism of virtual environments by providing useful visual cues. Shadow mapping is an efficient algorithm for real-time shadow renderin...

Variance shadow maps
Shadow maps are a widely used shadowing technique in real time graphics. One major drawback of their use is that they cannot be filtered in the same way as color textures, typica...

Practical logarithmic rasterization for low-error shadow maps
Logarithmic shadow maps can deliver the same quality as competing shadow map algorithms with substantially less storage and bandwidth. We show how current GPU architectures can be...

The Soft Shadow Occlusion Camera
A fundamental challenge for existing shadow map based algorithms is dealing with partially illuminated surfaces. A conventional shadow map built with a pinhole camera only determi...

Stochastic transparency
Stochastic transparency provides a unified approach to orderindependent transparency, anti-aliasing, and deep shadow maps. It augments screen-door transparency using a random sub...
