Free Ray Tracing Gems II Chapter Covers Ray Tracing in Remedy’s Control

Next week, Ray Tracing Gems II will finally be available in its entirety as a free download, or for purchase as a physical release from Apress or Amazon. Since the start of July, we’ve been providing early access to a new chapter every week. Today’s chapter, by Juha Sjöholm, Paula Jukarainen, and Tatu Aalto, presents how all ray tracing based effects were implemented in Remedy Entertainment’s Control. This includes opaque and transparent reflections, near field indirect diffuse illumination, contact shadows, and the denoisers tailored for these effects.
