Ray-Tracing Update?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Nvidia's "ray tracing" is a gimmick that isn't even real ray tracing. It's not going to end up in this game nor should it.

Not saying real ray tracing won't appear in the future but it will take substantially more powerful hardware to make it real time.

It's not a new technology either. Been a thing since more than 10 years, but mostly useless gimmick as you said. The kids think that it's new though, since nVidia introduced their RTX-series of GPUs.

The first ray tracing algorithm used for rendering was presented by Arthur Appel in 1968.

To be honest i don't think that the engine that L2 is made with ( 'UnrealEngine 2.0 ) allow the Ray-tracing since its a feature of 'UnrealEngine 4.22

In this case. Would it be possible to upgrade the Engine to 4.22?
