DirectX Raytracing: A Path Tracer

A DXR path tracer with OptiX denoising. 5 months worth of research, trial & error as part of a project to learn and understand DirectX Raytracing & raytracing concepts.

  • Native DirectX Raytracing
  • DXR Fallback Layer
  • OptiX deep-learning denoiser
  • Anti-aliasing with various sampling patterns
  • Reflection
  • Refraction
  • Material picking & editing
  • ImGui
