I was reading an article on ScratchaPixel and it seems adaptive sampling is also involved somehow. Or is that a whole different aspect to this particular issue?
Thats a really smart way to reduce noise. So I get it. They blend the adaptive sampling with the process you just described and that gives the Progressive Rendering.
Thanks again very much. It exists with ALL monte carlo renderers since the nature of performing an unbiased sampling means you begin with some samples, many of which are likely to be inaccurate producing noise in the final image.
Then, as more and more samples are fired into the scene for each pixel the result will eventually converge on the anticipated result the noise will reduce and inaccurate samples contribute less and less. Monte Carlo renders will carry on rendering forever, however after a certain amount of samples, each contribution will be minor, and so ignored settling on the actual result.
This is why the image starts noisy not many samples, and large number of inaccurate samples and then gradually improves its quality as more and more samples are used to estimate the pixel colour.
Progressive sampling is something else which is an optimisation aimed to reduce the time it takes to converge on a result. S Keep looking at Scratch-a-pixel. Its an excellent resource. However this would be down to the implementation. By default OpenGL offers nothing any ray-tracing system requires.
In regards to displaying your render. First create a frame buffer which is same dimensions as the output image you require. Is would also include another bit of meta information which each pixel which keeps track of the number of samples currently used by the pixel.
This allows results to populate the frame buffer mutually exclusive of each other. This frame buffer should be persisted each cycle of your main loop so that results from the each loop are accumulated into the frame buffer.
To calculate the result of a single pixel, its usually the sum of all the samples for that pixel divided by the total number of samples other sampling methods may weigh samples accordingly for standard jittered grid sampling for a pixel.
Ways I have personally done it: Draw a textured quad in openGL, using the framebuffer as the texture so you need to update the texture with the contents of the framebuffer each frame.

They differ in that they emit a red flare that allows a soldier and those he is fighting with to see the path it travels and its ultimate destination.
