After writing the previous Real Time Radiosity article, I received several e-mails expressing confusion about the method. I realized rather quickly that I had spent too much time writing about the history of of the method's development, and that I hadn't delved enough into the actual method. Therefore, I have decided to write an article solely for the purpose of explaining the methods of real time radiosity, and not for any history lessons ;)
Now, I say "methods" (plural) because, since the original article's release, I have also developed two other methods that deal with the radiosity of static objects. When all three methods are combined, they create a global radiosity solution.
