Everything you need to know about Ray Tracing
Ray Tracing is an advanced graphics technology that creates an accurate visualization of light, reflections, and shadows. Game developers in the past used different techniques to stimulate light within the game, but they were not as good as ray tracing. The old techniques that the developers used were not that realistic. The images in them looked somewhat different from what they actually would look like. But Ray Tracing’s advanced graphical images and videos look much more realistic. It shows real-world visual properties in a much better way.
