GRAPHICS RAY TRACING

Dec 01, 2014

My computer graphics course had a final project, and I decided to extend my simple ray tracer to have more features. After picking out the features and creating some of the images, my project won silver in our class, yay! The projects in our year also landed in the UWaterloo newspapers! :) Check it out here!

Below are some pieces of the demo I showed for the project. The focus of the project was mostly on the technical but also had a subjective rating.


Non-Texture vs. Texture




Without vs. Reflection with a 0.3 Ratio




Without vs. Refraction with an IOR of 1.7 vs. Fresnel Refraction and Reflection




Without vs. Area lighting with Soft Shadows




Without vs. Phong Interpolation




Without vs. Glossy Reflections




Without vs. Anti-Aliasing With Aliased Areas




Final Scene Rendering
