Statistical Inverse Lighting

Eduardo Fernández, Gonzalo Besuievsky

Abstract

Inverse lighting techniques allows to obtain the unknown light sources parameters, such as light position or flux emission, from desired lighting intentions. In this paper we present a new inverse lighting technique that uses the statistical mean and variance of the illuminated scene to obtain optimal solutions for a given lighting intention. This technique allows to explore a huge number of full radiosity solutions in a short time, reducing in this way drastically the optimization time required.
