Abstract

We present a method for combining two-level data structures and directional precomputation based on the Line Space (LS). While previous work has shown that LS precomputation significantly improves ray traversal performance of typical spatial data structures, it suffers from high memory consumption and low image quality due to internal approximations. Our method combines this technique with two-level BVHs, where the LS is integrated within second-level object BVHs. The advantages are, among others, optimizations in terms of approximation accuracy and required memory. In addition, we propose a method to use an accurate BVH in combination with the fast approximation-based LS for path tracing in order to further reduce image errors of the LS while still benefitting from its gain in performance.
