A Raytrace rendering tool written in Java.
During a graduate course on Computer Vision and Computer Graphics we built raytracers from scratch. Here are some of the images that my team’s java-based raytracer produced. Among the features in raytrace are:
- a thin-lens effect
- semi-opaque atmosphere
- multi-threaded rendering
The raytrace GUI in java swing.
Three reflective spheres on a tile surface.
Note the thin lense causes the nearby tiles to be out of focus. Around the spheres we can see reflections, shadows and variations in lighting.
A semi-transparent objects in front of three spheres.
Note how the light refracts as it passes through the transparent objects.
