Hi, i have recently searched the web for articles on photon mapping but haven´t found anything really introductory and useful. Can someone post a link? What is Photon Mapping in particular? I know it does global illumination, but what are the advantages or disadvantages against radiosity? thanks Gammastrahler

This is the site of the inventor of photon mapping. There are a number of papers there which are probably helpful. I could tell you why it''s better than radiosity, but you''re much better hearing it from the expert. If you are at all serious about learning it, I strongly recommend his book (also on the site).
