An open source physically based renderer.

Alt text

MantaRay is an advanced open-source renderer. It uses modern rendering techniques to generate photorealistic images of complex scenes.

This ray-tracer is also featured in the following YouTube videos on my channel AngeTheGreat: - User Interface and Renderer Improvements - Fraunhofer Diffraction

Sample Renders and Features

  • Procedural noise (blue backdrop and leather interior)
  • Transparency (window and headlight glass)
  • Custom shaders (car paint has a custom shader applied which varies color by viewing angle)
  • Normal mapping (floor and leather interior)
  • Support for high polygon scenes

- Racing stripes generated via procedural shaders (not textures)
