Hi visitor, my name is Igor Sklyar and I am a huge fan of rendering technologies. I have a deep knowledge and production experience of working with techniques such as: point based and monte carlo global illumination (GI) algorithms; distributed ray tracing, path tracing; point based and ray tracing algorithms of calculating subsurface scattering (SSS); multiple importance sampling and bidirectional scattering distribution functions (BSDF's); volumes rendering. I am constantly following developments of Pixar Renderman, Sidefx Mantra, PBRT, Cycles and Mitsuba renderers and all latest render trends and techniques. I am always extending my knowledge reading technical papers and math literature.

I am Senior Software Developer (Shader Writer) at Moving Picture Company - MPC FILM (http://www.moving-picture.com) located in London and responsible for development and support studio shading library for Pixar’s Renderman RIS technology as well as for studio’s lighting and shading tools.

Previously I worked in One Animation (http://oneanimation.com) studio, Singapore and developed there physically plausible shading and rendering pipeline, which is modern, simple and reliable. It allows to produce more than 5 series per month and made the process of shading and lighting efficient, easy, predictable and fun for our artists.

As a Senior R&D Technical Director I’ve done:
