Ray Tracing - ashimo - 07-01-2011

This code sample does 3D rendering using rendering algorithms directly programmed in Curl software, showing the high performance of code generated by the Curl compiler. The Curl content language is also showcased, since active elements are mixed in with, and controlled from, the accompanying descriptive text.

If it's hard to believe that ray tracing can be done in real time by a plug-in, you can use the mouse to move the light and watch the shadows change, or turn the lake to plastic.

To learn more, read The Coolest Interactive Ray Tracing Tutorial on the Web, which is totally written in Curl and contains a nice gallery of ray traced Curl procedural graphics.
