Re: Experimental Development Framework (C++ and ray tracing)

Not surprisingly, I like rtVTK: http://www.rtvtk.org I've been overhauling the entire system, which includes an Embree plugin, but that's been delayed due to some other projects. However, it should be straightforward to integrate your own ray tracer---based on Embree or otherwise---in the existing ...

Re: Experimental Development Framework (C++ and ray tracing)

Have you considered Mitsuba? Quite popular in research currently, there's a Qt-GUI with a realtime GL renderer, it should be hackable to do what you want. The big points for me is that it is maintained, very readable code, has quite awesome features to be honest, and I managed to build it myself (i...

Re: Experimental Development Framework (C++ and ray tracing)

Would that make Embree a good choice? Referring back to my original post, I want to make a preview window with my models etc, and then an output window where the path tracer result is shown. I have previously built some simple GPU path tracers in D3D and ofcourse OptiX but I prefer to make my new im...

Experimental Development Framework (C++ and ray tracing)

Dear all, Currently I am working on my master thesis that is about Global Illumination, with a focus on efficient path tracing methods. At first, my implementation for my experiments was done with Nvidia's OptiX. However the structure and nature of OptiX (CUDA) makes it hard for me to debug everythi...

Re: My Optix porting of SmallVCM (only PathTracer & BDPT)

Dear AGPX (for lack of your real name), Is there any chance you are willing to (privately) share your OptiX sourcecode for this project? I'm implementing a BDPT for my master thesis, but it's going less smooth than one would hope. I think I could learn a lot about the OptIX implementation from what ...
