Member Function Documentation

virtual const Float32* mi::neuraylib::IBsdf_buffer::get_data ( ) const
pure virtual

Returns the memory block containing the actual BSDF values.

The size of the array is given by

res_theta^2 * res_phi * factor

where res_phi is the value returned by mi::neuraylib::IBsdf_isotropic_data::get_resolution_phi(), res_theta is the value returned by mi::neuraylib::IBsdf_isotropic_data::get_resolution_theta(), and factor is 1 if mi::neuraylib::IBsdf_isotropic_data::get_type() returns mi::neuraylib::BSDF_SCALAR and 3 otherwise.

The index of the (first) element for a particular triple (index_theta_in, index_theta_out, index_phi_in) is given by

factor * (index_theta_in * (res_phi * res_theta) + index_theta_out * res_phi + index_phi)

The pointer returned by this method has to be valid for the lifetime of this interface.

Implemented in mi::neuraylib::Bsdf_buffer.
