Behold the power of path tracing technology! Nvidia has released a peek at their groundbreaking new renderer, and it looks nothing short of amazing. In an effort to bring realism to an even higher level than ray tracing, Nvidia’s new path tracing takes a scene with billions of triangles and millions of light emitters, and renders it in real-time. With unparalleled accuracy and unprecedented detail, path tracing could be one of the biggest game-changers in the graphics world to come in years.
See it in action with this exclusive tweet thread (https://cdn.jwplayer.com/previews/wn0FE4jb) filled with ten examples of the technology in action. You can also head over to Nvidia’s website for further details about how the method works. It’s still too early to tell when exactly it’ll arrive as a fully-fledged graphics render in games — but when it does, it’s bound to set a new standard for visual fidelity.
Artists and designers alike will be thrilled to know that path tracing won’t just stay confined to gaming applications. The technology has potential for use in augmented and virtual reality, film and television production, offering a level of realism the world of media has never seen before.
With each new advancement in graphics technology, games look more and more like real life. Maybe soon, path tracing will make the phrase “it looks like a movie” a reality in the gaming industry.
