Radiosity Visualisation: radvis

'radvis' is a radiosity visualisation tool that illustrates matrix, progressive, and hierarchical/wavelet radiosity in action. It started life as a debugging tool for my radiosity code, and evolved from that into something I could use to demonstrate the algorithms to other students.


These are some of the program's features:

Radvis is a unix program, although I'd like to port it to windows. Its only dependencies are on OpenGL and the xforms library.

You can download radvis, and there is also some documentation available. It comes as part of the radiator package.
