Run Intel® OSPRay Studio

Intel® OSPRay Studio is a showcase application and creates an implementation of an interactive and extendable ray-tracing application. This walkthrough demonstrates how to run the Intel OSPRay Studio application.
  • Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit
    with Intel OSPRay Studio. By default, the
    Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit
    is installed to
    directory. Replace
    with the default or your custom installation path.
  • Optional: A
    image viewer (
    for example, ImageMagick*, Eye of GNOME* (EoG), or GIMP*
  • Optional
    : Docker* platform. Docker containers are useful to make setting prerequisites easier.
Run Intel OSPRay Studio
  1. Open a
    new terminal window or set up a Docker container with the
    Render Kit
    and software prerequisites installed. Refer to Configure Your System for instructions.
  2. Go to a writable directory and create a folder to save the sample application results to.
    For example, create the
    under the home directory
    cd ~
    mkdir rk_gsg
    cd rk_gsg
  3. Set Intel® oneAPI Toolkits environment variables:
    source <install-dir>/
    is the directory where you installed the
    Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit
    . By default, it is
    All prerequisite Render Kit dynamic libraries should now be available for the Intel OSPRay Studio.
  4. Run Intel OSPRay Studio:
    You should see an interactive rendering window:
    Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit: Intel OSPRay Studio interactive window on Linux OS
  5. In the rendering window, go to
    Demo Scene
    and select one of the predefined demo scenes.
    Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit: Select Intel OSPRay Studio demo scene on Linux OS
    Some scenes demonstrate Intel® Open Volume Kernel Library integration capability.
  6. Review the selected scene. For example, the Multilevel Hierarchy demo looks as follows:
    Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit: Multilevel Hierarchy Intel OSPRay Studio demo scene on Linux OS
    You can control the scene view with a mouse as follows:
    • Right-click to pan.
    • Left-click to rotate.
    • Scroll the mouse wheel to zoom in and out.
    • Drag and drop to move the camera.
  7. You can save output image from
    in a preferred image format. The image is saved to the working
    directory as
    Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit: Save Intel OSPRay Studio demo scene on Linux OS
  8. You can review the saved screenshot with your preferred image viewer.
    For example, to open the resulting images with the EoG image viewer:
