A basic path tracer with CUDA

The path tracer we will create in this project will run on CUDA-enabled GPUs. You will need to install the CUDA Toolkit available from NVIDIA. The device code for this project uses classes and must be compiled with compute capability 2.0. If you are unsure what compute capability your card has, check out this list. Below are two screen captures of this project in action. This path tracer is basic and fairly crude and inefficient. I'll provide a brief overview of the code before Read more [...]
