Imagination Technologies previews Caustic Series2 ray tracing acceleration boards5 Comments
Imagination Technologies' Caustic Series2 OpenRL PC boards are designed to accelerate Caustic Visualizer viewport plugins for Max and Maya. The plugins bring interactive real-time ray tracing to the working viewports of 3D software, providing higher visual quality than standard rendering viewports, including globally accurate lighting, reflections and shadows within a 3DS Max or Mental Ray scene. Imagination Technologies had announced the acquisition of Caustic Graphics and the Brazil renderer back in 2010, these viewport plugins seem to be all that's left of the renderer.
