XTracer 2 Copyright 2010 - 2016 (c) Papadopoulos Nikos <email@example.com> About ----- XTracer is a raytracer written in c and c++. v0.7 served as my thesis project for the BSc of computer science at the University of Piraeus. It was developed under the supervision of Prof. T. Panayiotopoulos as part of the research work of the Knowledge Engineering Lab. v1.1 was developed as part of my dissertation for the MSc of computer graphics programming at the University of Hull. v1.2 is the current version. All external dependencies have been integrated. License ------- The source code is distributed under the LGPL license version 3 or later. Version history --------------- 0.7 : 2866bf99ca04d84a85ab13b755ded7d42014bee7 1.x : HEAD Features -------- * Primitives : Plane, Triangle, Sphere, Mesh * Materials : Lambert, Phong, Blinn-Phong * Lights : Point, Sphere, Box, Triangle * Cameras : Pinhole, Thin lense * Shading : Reflection (glossy & perfect mirror), Refraction, Depth of field, Soft shadows, Texture mapping, Fresnel * Acceleration : Threads, Octrees, KD-trees * Anti-aliasing : Supersampling * Rendering : HDR, Whitted/Distributed raytracing, Photon mapping (diffuse term) Compilation / Installation -------------------------- The source code is distributed along with a makefile configuration script for unix based systems with a GNU toolchain installed. To view all the available configuration options type: ./configure --help. Once the configuration is done, you can build the binary by typing: make. To install the binary in your system type: make install. To uninstall type: make uninstall For windows users, a visual studio 2010 solution is available in the ide directory. How to use ---------- You can find sample scenes in the scene directory. Note that some of the scenes require textures or meshes that are not included in the repository. Dependencies ------------ Version: 0.x - 18.104.22.168 * openmp Must be provided by your compiler. * libnmath https://github.com/4rknova/libnmath * libnmesh https://github.com/4rknova/libnmesh * linimg https://github.com/4rknova/libnimg * libncf https://github.com/4rknova/libncf NOTE: You might need older versions of the libraries. Version: 22.214.171.124 * openmp Must be provided by your compiler. Supported platforms ------------------- xtracer should be able to compile and run on any system equipped with openmp compatible c and c++ compilers. It has been tested without any problems under the following platforms: * Linux * FreeBSD * MacOSX * MS Windows XP, 7 Contributions ------------- I would like to thank the following people for their help and support. version 0.x Prof. T.
