A proof of concept spectral path tracer in Rust.
From the Latin ‘luculentus’, meaning ‘bright’, ‘shining’, ‘impressive’, ‘gorgeous’ and ‘robigo’, meaning ‘rust’ (on metals, as well as the fungus). This is a port of the proof of concept spectral path tracer Luculentus to the Rust programming language, released under the GNU General Public License.
Robigo Luculenta traces rays at different wavelengths, giving it the ability to simulate effects like dispersion and chromatic aberration. It was written with code clarity as the primary goal; it is not optimised for speed, although it is multithreaded.
If you like this, you might also like Convector, a (non-spectral) path tracer written in Rust with performance as the primary goal.
