3D Paint Baking Proposal

Robert L. Cook

Abstract:

3d paint has long been one of the most expensive parts of rendering at Pixar. This proposal is for a new baking technique that would greatly reduce the run-time cost of 3d paint and require no changes to the existing workflow. The implementation makes heavy use of existing code, which reduces the amount of risk in the project.
