Depth of field
My friend had added depth of field to the path tracer, which shows some nice results.

Two of the subjects I'm following at the university at the moment are Additional Component Computer Graphics and Algorithms for Massive Data. The first pretty much lets you propose a graphics related project while the second focuses on processing large amounts of data or computations efficiently. So, of course, my proposal was to implement a path tracer w...
