A major new version of Mitsuba was just released. "What really is new is that Mitsuba implements a group of rendering algorithms that traditionally have been horribly complicated," Jakob said. Together with improvements developed at Cornell University, these can simulate the complex behavior of light traveling through glossy materials such as brushed metal or glass.
