Multi-threading in Embree 2.0

Multi-threading in Embree 2.0

Which functions in Embree 2.0 are implemented to use multiple threads? When I do rtcStartThreads() which of the functions are affected? Specifically are the intersect and occluded functions multi-threaded?

Thanks,

Ritwik

The hierarchy builders in Embree are multi-threaded. The ray traversal is not multi-threaded, thus you have to call rtcIntersect from multiple threads yourself.
