AMB file extension - Radiance ambient file
What is amb file? How to open amb files?
File type specification:
The AMB file extension is usedby Radiance. RADIANCE is a lighting simulation program that synthesizes images from 3-dimensional geometric models of physical spaces. The input model describes each surface's shape, size, location and composition. A model may contain many thousands of surfaces, and is often produced by a separate CAD program. In addition to arbitrary (planar) polygons, RADIANCE directly models spheres and cones. Generator programs are provided for the creation of more complex shapes from these basic surface primitives. Examples include boxes, prisms and surfaces of revolution. A transformation utility permits the simple duplication of objects and hierarchical construction of a scene.
A binary file used to store diffuse interreflection values, which are shared between cooperating rendering processes running sequentially or in parallel. Since these values are viewindependent, sharing this information across multiple runs is highly economical.
