A method of rendering a graphical scene includes determining a plurality of functions that contribute to a light transport model of a scene, factoring the plurality of functions into a set of fixed functions and one varying function, determining a first radiance transfer vector that represents the product of the fixed functions in the wavelet domain, determining as second radiance transfer vector that represents the one varying function in the wavelet domain, determining an inner product of the first and second radiance transfer vectors to approximate a radiance of a point x in the scene, and rendering the scene.
