Multithreaded Radiosity?

I’m wondering if it’s possible, or if there were any plans, to make radiosity calculation multithreaded.

(yes, some of us actually use it, however antiquated it may be)

I mean, I’m sitting here with 4 cores (8 as soon as AMD releases their Phenom FXs), and it’s only using one for the radiosity calculation step.

I cannot guarantee anything but it certainly would be nice to see improvements to radiosity. Hopefully the Peach guys are able to cook up something nice.

Yeah. I’d probably jump in and have a look at the code to see what it would take to multithread it, but there have been few obscure GI related rumors flying around, so it may not be worthwhile.
