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.
Prerequisites
  • Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit
    with Intel OSPRay Studio. By default, the
    Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit
    is installed to
    /opt/intel/oneapi/
    directory. Replace
    <install-dir>
    with the default or your custom installation path.
  • Optional: A
    .ppm
    image viewer (
    for example, ImageMagick* or GIMP*
    )
Run Intel OSPRay Studio
  1. Open a new terminal window.
  2. Go to a writable directory and create a folder to save the sample application results to.
    For example, create the
    rk_gsg
    folder
    :
    cd ~
    mkdir rk_gsg
    cd rk_gsg
  3. Set Intel® oneAPI Toolkits environment variables:
    source <install-dir>/setvars.sh
    where
    <install-dir>
    is the directory where you installed the
    Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit
    . By default, it is
    /opt/intel/oneapi/
    .
    All prerequisite Render Kit dynamic libraries should now be available for the Intel OSPRay Studio.
  4. Run Intel OSPRay Studio:
    ospStudio
    You should see an interactive rendering window:

  5. In the rendering window, go to
    File
    Demo Scene
    and select one of the predefined demo scenes.

    Some scenes demonstrate Intel® Open Volume Kernel Library integration capability.
  6. Review the selected scene. For example, the Multilevel Hierarchy demo looks as follows:

    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
    Menu
    Save...
    Screenshot
    in a preferred image format. The image is saved to the working
    rk_gsg
    directory as
    studio.<NNNN>
    .
