Wow I never realized the work he did with the Warnock algorithm, as in I
was familiar with similar approaches to rendering in film and video
(tiling and stitching frames together in renderman for example) - but
was never made aware that those approaches probably stemmed from his phd
I feel like a lot of modern data processing pipelines could learn a
thing or two from this approach.
Thanks for sharing...
