XRayOp

Run an interactive ray tracer

Features for production use are under consideration.

Inputs

The compatible elements of the Input Surface are fed into the ray tracer.

Any triangle or quad surface should be recognized. Some quadric primitives are recognized in their pure form, such as uniformly-scaled spheres, cylinders (tubes), and disks (circles). In general, pure quadrics are much faster and better looking than their faceted approximations.

Parameters

The Image Scale adjusts the relative size of the evaluated region.

Brush

Point anywhere to adjust the center of the ray cast frustrum. The image overlay can follow the mouse pointer.

Status

(FE alpha) PROTOTYPE
tested in Houdini
