Final Project

Image using samples: 16 - 64, with threshold: 0.004

This image used photon mapping + Monte Carlo GI for direct and indirect illumination.
Soft shadow samples: 16
Indirect illumination samples: 16
Photon emitted: 10E6
Indirect photon radius: 0.5
Max # of indirect photons for estimation: 1000
Caustic photon radius: 0.25
Max # of caustic photons for estimation: 4000

Render Time : 88.39min (using 16 threads for rendering)

The ring model I used is created by Mateus Arrobas from TF3DM and here is his link: Engagement Ring
