Abstract
We present a new variant of the algorithm of [Laine et al.
2005] for rendering physically-based soft shadows in ray
tracing-based renderers. Our method replaces the inter-
nal acceleration data structure, a variant of the hemicube
[Cohen and Greenberg 1985], to store potential silhouette
edges. Instead we use a kd-tree [Havran 2000] and differ-
ent building, storing and accessing techniques. Compared
to the original algorithm, these changes lower the memory
consumption of the soft shadow calculation, but increase the
