Capabilities of the Paranumal Accelerated Ray Tracer:
Whitted based ray transport (link).
Stack based multiple scattering.
Primitives: spheres, cylinders, cones, planes, triangles, disks.
Field of view emulated using Monte Carlo ray casting through thin lens.
Reflective or refractive objects.
Demoed here with simple collision dynamics.
