Time: 10:00am – 11:00am PT
Duration: 1 hour

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. To conclude, we’ll touch on denoising, the other element that makes interactive ray tracing possible.

By joining this webinar, you will:
  • Understand basic terminology, such as stochastic ray tracing and path tracing
  • Have a sense of the strengths of ray tracing compared to rasterization
  • Get a feel for the wide range of effects that ray tracing makes possible
  • Learn a bit more about related topics, such as denoising and the rendering equation
  • Get your questions answered in a live Q&A session



You will receive an email with instructions on how to join the webinar shortly.
