synopsis


Multiexcerpt
MultiExcerptNamesynopsis

It is possible to designate objects to be part of one or many trace sets. The trace_set shader marks specific rays with an inclusive or exclusive trace set. Both geometry and rays can be designated as trace sets:

  • A piece of geometry can have none or any number of trace sets.
  • A ray can optionally have one trace set, and it can be exclusive or inclusive.

 


The way those two interact makes it possible to control visibility for specific rays:

  • A ray with no trace set will hit all geometry.
  • A ray marked with an inclusive trace set will only hit geometry which has that trace set.
  • A ray marked with an exclusive trace set will only see geometry that does NOT have that trace set.
