Adding Object Motion to the Paranumal Accelerated Ray Tracer

Capabilities of the Paranumal Accelerated Ray Tracer:

  • Whitted based ray transport (link).

  • Stack based multiple scattering.

  • GPU acceleration.

  • 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.

Tutorial: link.
