Intro to Intel® Embree Development: High Performance Ray Tracing Kernel Library

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm GMT-0800

Speaker: Michael Royce Carroll – Intel: Senior Technical Consulting Engineer for Intel Rendering Toolkit

Intel Embree is an open source, high-fidelity high-performance ray tracing kernel library. The Embree API allows for C and C++ developers to access hardware optimized ray traversal and bounding volume hierarchy compute for use in professional rendering or scientific visualization. Embree has been used in rendering applications like Pixar* Renderman, Chaos* V-Ray, Kitware* Paraview, and more. Embree uses tools and libraries provided under the oneAPI specification such as Intel® oneAPI DPC++ Compiler and Intel® oneAPI Thread Building Blocks (oneTBB). Embree’s optimized kernels are used with other Intel ray tracing libraries found in the Intel® Rendering Toolkit. In this session, we introduce:
• Rendering Toolkit constituents and objectives
• Embree purpose and applications
• Embree development toolchains and device targets for varying performance and application needs
• Getting started options as a developer exploring Embree
• Sample program source code review

Attendees familiar with C99 and C++11 should be able to follow examples.
