Polyhex Sampler

Build Status DOI

Description

A fast and high quality sampling system.

  • uniform sampling at more than 1 millions points / second
  • adaptive sampling from image or function

This is an implementation of the article "Fast Tile-Based Adaptive Sampling with User-Specified Fourier Spectra" published in ACM SIGGRAPH 2014 See http://liris.cnrs.fr/polyhex

This repository provide:

  • source code with tools to generate uniform and adaptive sampling.
  • sampler-cli: a command line tool to generate uniform sampling.
  • sampler-gui: a Qt interface to explore the capacities of the sampling system (uniform and adaptive sampling).

Build

To build the sampler, several packages are requires:

A classical commandline build process looks like

mkdir build  ##Generate build folder
cd build
cmake ..     ##Check dependencies and generate a makefile
make         ##Build

For best performances, you can compile with optimized flags: cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release

Once built, several executables are available in build/bin:

  • `sampler-cli: command line uniform and adaptive sampling tool
  • `sampler-gui: Qt base sampler (uniform, adaptive, ...)

Data

This program needs full offsets table to produce best sampling distribution. These tables are heavy (1.5G) and can be downloaded here: http://liris.cnrs.fr/polyhex/data/

Aternatively, make GetLUT (GetLUT target in your IDE) will download the data file to the folder {your-build-folder}/data/lut.

Usage examples

sampler-cli

Usage examples:

./bin/sampler-cli -r data/lut/production_rules.dat -b data/lut/barycenters.dat -d data/lut/offsets_bnot.dat -n 1024 -o sampling.txt

This procudes a uniform sampling with BNOT target spectra as a text file sampling.txt with x and y coordinates of the 1024 sample points. When plotting these points (e.g. with gnuplot), we obtain:

CLIsampling

./bin/sampler-cli -r data/lut/production_rules.dat -b data/lut/barycenters.dat -d data/lut/offsets_bnot.dat -i butterfly.png -o sampling.txt

This procudes an adaptive sampling with BNOT target spectra as a text file sampling.txt with x and y coordinates of the sample points. When plotting these points (e.g. with gnuplot), we obtain

(with -K 2) CLIsampling (with -K 29) CLIsampling

sampler-gui

./bin/sampler-gui -r data/lut/production_rules.dat -b data/lut/barycenters.dat -d data/lut/offsets_bnot.dat

TIPS:

  • You can use mouse scroll on almost all buttons to change their values more easily.
  • Activate Auto mode to generate new sampling each time a parameter changes.
