Case Study in Parallel Computation and Graphics Visualization: Parallel Ray Tracer

Target Audience: Graduate with 3D math and Linear Algebra background

Large project with feature-rich ray tracer (including anti-aliasing, glossy reflections, translucency, depth of field, soft shadows, and median-split volume hierarchy acceleration structure). Does not include visualization, but can easily be converted to support OpenCV. Reads Pixar Renderman (*.RIB) files and outputs *.PPM image files. Includes three versions for both Windows and Linux: serial, OpenMP, and CILK.
