SoftRasSoft Rasterizer (SoftRas) is a truly differentiable renderer framework with a novel formulation that views rendering as a differentiable aggregating process that fuses probabilistic contributions of all mesh triangles with respect to the rendered pixels. Thanks to such "soft" formulation, our framework is able to (1) directly render colorized mesh using differentiable functions and (2) back-propagate efficient supervision signals to mesh vertices and their attributes (color, normal, etc.) from various forms of image representations, including silhouette, shading and color images.

These versions of SoftRas are available on the BEAR systems (BlueBEAR, BEARCloud VMs, and CaStLeS VMs). These will be retained in accordance with our Applications Support and Retention Policy.
