Ray Tracing Gems II is now available to download for free via Apress and Amazon and as a hardcover on Apress and Amazon as well. For those who love books as a physical medium, we recommend purchasing a copy for your home library, while also downloading the free PDF version for easy digital access on the go.
This Open Access book is a must-have for anyone interested in real-time rendering. Ray tracing is the holy grail of gaming graphics, simulating the physical behavior of light to bring real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to even the most visually intense games. Ray tracing is also a fundamental algorithm used for architecture applications, visualization, sound simulation, deep learning, and more.
We’ve collaborated with our partners to make four limited edition versions of the book, featuring custom covers that highlight real-time ray tracing in Fortnite, Control, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Quake II RTX.
