Global Illumination Test Scenes

University of Utah Technical Report UUCS-00-013
The global illumination community has discussed having a database of scenes
that could be used to compare and validate different global
We present a set of test scenes for global illumination algorithms and
propose that they be the beginning of such a database.
These scenes are designed to be as simple as possible and still test a
particular aspect of energy transport. The scenes are
available on a web site in a variety of formats, along with images
and pixel radiance data. We feel that the simplicity and
availability of the models will make it easier for the community to
use them, and that the field will benefit from a standard set of scenes.
Additionally, we discuss classes of models with analytic solutions.
versions of the paper are also
available. There is a
