Image Description, by Ian Ashdown

This image of a Japanese tatami (dining) room was generated by the Helios32 Radiosity Renderer. It consists of 3,448 polygons and took 46 seconds to perform the radiosity calculations on a 450 MHz Pentium II desktop machine. The output is an OpenGL display list or VRML 97 file for realtime viewing.

Helios32 was designed for architectural visualizations, but it is equally adept at producing physically realistic lightmaps for games development. There is no artistic license involved -- what you see is what you would get in a real environment with physically correct light sources and diffuse surface reflectances.
