SAL Home GRAPHICS Raytracers

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Raytracing applications take a model with the description of a scene (prepared by Modelers, or simply by a text editor), and then generate image files accordingly. Raytracers usually take into consideration lighting, camera position/angle, material textures, and various properties affecting the images.
