Since the last time we updated the website, we've done the following:

  • Improved the Ray Tracing algorithm
  • Added support for simple clouds
  • Optimized the Bounding Volume Hierarchy (BVH) traversal algorithm
  • Removed the Bloom effect, which was a work in progress

We've not updated this website in over a year. But the project isn't dead.

Since the last update we've done, among other things, the following:

  • Added a rendering algorithm based on Ray Tracing
  • Added a rendering algorithm based on Ambient Occlusion
  • Added a new Texture type based on fractional Brownian motion (fBm)
  • Improved the noise-based Normal Mapping with fractional Brownian motion (fBm)
  • Improved the stability of the moving average algorithm used for the Monte Carlo-method simulation

A few days ago we published an early test implementation of Dayflower to GitHub. All the images on this website are based on this version.

You may also notice some minor changes to the website.

We've added a blog to the website today. Check it out at

Today we've added a gallery to the website. To view the images, navigate to Gallery.

The work for today has been to create the very first version of our new website. The old one didn't look that great and it had all its contents on one single page.

In order to create this new website, we had to create our own simplistic Object-Oriented Bootstrap framework for PHP.
