Nvidia Researchers Introduce A Modular Primitive To Provide High-Performance Primitive Operations For Rasterization-Based Differentiable Rendering

Rendering is a complex process. Its differentiation cannot be uniquely defined; thus, a straightforward integration into neural networks is impossible. Differentiable rendering (DR) constitutes a family of techniques that tackle such integration for end-to-end optimization by obtaining useful gradients of the rendering process. Nvidia and Aalto University introduce a modular primitive to provide high-performance primitive […]
