Ray Tracing Essentials

Join computer graphics expert Eric Haines as he explains key concepts related to ray tracing. We’ll start with the use of rays in rendering, compare ray tracing with rasterization, and explain how specialized hardware has accelerated its performance. We’ll then survey various effects made simpler or possible with ray tracing.
