Lighting Simulators


#1

I’m searching for a render engine that can simulate polarisation. I would like to recreate for example the effect of two cross polarised materials without using tricks. Also is there any render that can simulate light in a broader spectra then visible ? (I remember that some version of MR could but probably I’m wrong).

Hi,
Ocean Light Simulator is exactly what you are searching for:

I should also mention LuxRender, because it is free, but doesn’t support polarisation just many others like spectral rendering:

Indigo renderer also does polarisation
