Photorealism on iOS


I am currently working on a mobile application (solely on iOS for now) that requires rendering a photorealistic scene with many objects and rendering photorealistic models within AR.

I understand that developing for mobile is limited, especially for high-quality rendering, but are there any topics/courses that can aid in achieving photorealism on mobile or is a project of this kind too ambitious?

It might be too ambitious but it depends on the content. There’s a whole range of things that can look realistic with different levels of performance requirements. For example, doing a character would likely have more things going on graphically than a hard surface object.

It also depends on what devices you’re targeting, there’s a whole range of iOS devices with different levels of capability so it would be better if you limit things to newer devices which will be more powerful.
