Real-Time Raytracing using LightningTrace

Real-Time Raytracing using LightningTrace in OpticStudio, August 27th 2015

Raytracing in non-sequential systems is inherently time consuming due to the complexity of these systems and the general nature of the raytrace. While OpticStudio’s non-sequential raytracing is the fastest in the industry, further speed improvements are always valuable. LightningTrace is a patent-pending raytrace technology that uses interpolation to speed up non-sequential raytracing by orders of magnitude. This speed improvement provides the ability to see the effect of design changes in real-time, drastically accelerating the optical design process. In this webinar we will discuss the following: 
  • Compare LightningTrace to conventional non-sequential raytracing 
  • Instantaneous raytrace results when exploring design changes 
  • Optimization using LightningTrace
