4. 3), compute the color at the point of the object intersection. Since the pixel on the image plane is the projection of the point of intersection, determining the color at this point is the same as determining the color of the pixel. This is performed in several steps: a. First check for the contribution of light energy by each light. 4. It is therefore possible to determine if the object, at the point of intersection, is completely lit, partially lit, or not lit at all. During this step, you simply determine shadows.

As with any recursive algorithm, you must be careful to stop the process at some stage to avoid infinite recursion. Indeed, let’s take the example of two parallel mirrors facing each other. When a reflective ray is traced from one of the mirrors, there is a possibility that this ray might be normal to the surface of the mirror. When hitting the opposite mirror, the algorithm will create a new reflective ray, normal to the surface of that mirror and pointing in the direction of the opposite mirror (the first mirror).

NOTE: Be careful if you make your own physical spotlight as they can get quite hot. All the light that doesn’t escape is changed into heat. Conservation of energy strikes again. 17. Changing the umbra and penumbra Notice how the sizes of the umbrae nearly double, but the penumbrae are roughly the same size. This is because of the positions and the sizes of the lights. In this example, it just happened to turn out that way. Other configurations could yield different results. 22 A spotlight is really just an extension of an area light when the lighting effect is constrained by the angles of the umbra and penumbra.
