hello how can i develop a ray trace/dadiosity engine??

i´m a newbie.
i hope someone can help me

you can give me: links, books, sites, EVERITHING!!!

thanks in advance

If you are really a newbie, then learn
how to use google first ! (sorry, could’nt resist !)
And how much ‘newbie’ are you ?
I hope you are a least a bit literate in programming (c, c++ whatever).
As for beginning, go for ray-tracing first.
It’s rather simple to have something up and shiny (and slow btw…) rapidly.


ps: as for books, I would begin with:

  • advanced animation and rendering, by Watt & Watt
  • Computer Graphic 2nd ed., James D. Foley & al
