GTC Silicon Valley-2019 ID:S9177:Integrating the NVIDIA Material Definition Language MDL in Your Application

Lutz Kettner(NVIDIA)
The NVIDIA MDL SDK provides a rich toolset to integrate MDL in a wide range of renderers, from physically based ray tracing to real-time applications. In this tutorial-like session, we'll show how MDL materials and texturing functions can be compiled for OptiX/CUDA, x86, and OpenGL target platforms. We'll also discuss how the MDL Distiller can be used to simplify MDL materials for use with real-time rendering solutions. Developers will learn about the available APIs and example code.
