Physically Based Rendering (4th edition) now available online for free - Physically Based Rendering: From Theory To Implementation

Real-time dreamy Cloudscapes with Volumetric Raymarching - One fascinating aspect of Raymarching I quickly encountered in my study was its capacity to be tweaked to render volumes. Instead of stopping the raymarched loop once the ray hits a surface, we push through and continue the process to sample the inside of an object.

The art of Hit Registration - One of the core systems of a competitive networked FPS game, using a snapshot interpolation technique to synchronize the different clients with the server, is its Hit Registration algorithm.
