Visionaray's strengths are:

  • Open Source: Visionaray is licensed under the flexible MIT license.
  • Cross-platform: Intel CPUs, Nvidia GPUs, Xilinx FPGAs (work in progress). No duplicate code, all platforms targeted from the same C++ code.
  • High flexibility through kernel- and scheduler-based architecture. Kernels describe what a ray does, schedulers describe how a ray is spawned.

    • Built-in kernels: simple ray casting, "Whitted"-style ray tracing, "Kajiya"-style path tracing.
    • Built-in schedulers: simple (scanline, single-threaded), tiled (multi-threaded), TBB, CUDA.
    • User can write custom schedulers and kernels.

  • Built-in performance primitives: SIMD short vector library, fast SBVH builder and traversal, texture support, physically based materials, etc.
  • VR support: Visionaray comes with a plugin for the virtual reality renderer OpenCOVER.
