High Performance Ray Tracing for 3D Digital Content Creation
Modern high performance ray tracing provides photorealistic images in split-seconds and is used in multiple products at Adobe. Beyond visualization, we also leverage the generality of ray tracing to fuel the 3D digital content creation workflow itself, in multiple creative ways. In this talk, I will cover the typical use of ray tracing in our products, from geometric property estimations to final high quality rendering. I will also discuss a few interesting scientific challenges which keep us awake at night.
