From Ray Tracing to Path Tracing
Here's how your creations change for the better

Path Tracing is a huge step forward compared to Ray Tracing; you can activate it in the RTBIM environment with a simple click and it doesn't require any additional hardware compared to Ray Tracing.

What is Path Tracing?

Path Tracing is an advanced rendering technology that allows you to produce physically precise images with stunning global lighting effects thanks to light path simulations while taking into account the relating light ray bounces in random directions.

With Path Tracing, rays are traced on multiple bounces - from the light source to the target object - instead of traditional linear tracing.

These rays bounce off the objects in the scene and propagate in various directions depending on the surfaces of objects included in the scene.

Each ray of light bounces off the different objects in the scene illuminating the surrounding objects according to their surface quality, just as in reality.

Renders produced with Path Tracing are characterized by greater depth and more vibrant colours but with softer shadows and enhanced photorealism when simulating the different materials.

Ray Tracing vs Path Tracing

Both Path Tracing and Ray Tracing are rendering techniques used to produce high-impact, realistic-looking images at the cost of significantly greater computing power.

Ray Tracing is able to create realistic reflections on 3D objects from the main light sources present in the scene.

In Path Tracing, unlike Ray Tracing, its purpose is to simulate the propagation of "real" light sources.

Not only does it take into account the quantity of light propagated by the light sources, but also how the 3D objects present in the scene, reflect and behave when ht by the light rays.

In Ray Tracing, light rays are simulated and then traced from their origin to their end point. Whereas in Path Tracing, a single beam is traced and bounces between its point of origin and the target point propagating in random directions.

What is Architectural visualization
and what advantages does Real-Time Path tracing offer

What is Architectural visualization | Edificius | ACCA Software

Architectural Visualization is rapidly becoming a discipline that includes modern digital visualization techniques to describe an architectural projects with more convincing content and enhanced photo-realism.

Now we can forget the days when projects were presented with sketches or 2D drawings and designers and clients had to simply rely on their immagination to understand what would be the final result.

3D photorealistic rendering, Real-Time Rendering, Scene Photomontages, Video Editing, Immersive virtual reality, Online model navigation: today architects and designers have the opportunity to take advantage of all the power of high-quality digital imagery and reproduce increasingly realistic and faithful previews of their projects, immerse the customer in the atmosphere of a future building allowing him to experience the project from all possible angles.

We understand and and store visual information with a better perception of spaces and volumes, in fact, we know the great value behind the saying, "an image is worth a thousand words!"

With photorealistic 3D rendering the communication gap is completely overcome drastically reducing misinterpretation and misunderstandings. Your client will have a clear vision of how you intend to complete the structure and the approval phase will be faster and more efficient.

The use of Architectural Visualization techniques is also crucial during the design phase.

With real-time rendering you can easyily try different solutions (materials, components, colors, etc.) and simulate each situation with extreme precision (lighting, exposure, etc.) before reaching the final choice so as to avoid subsequent costly changes.

Real-time rendering improves the quality and precision of your design. See what you are designing in real time, you can control every aspect and every choice with the greater precision and accuracy, prevent or mitigate design errors, examine how the project affects the surrounding environment, take into account nearby objects, roads, even soil and climate conditions.

With good Architectural Visualization tools, you can avoid errors and greatly reduce costs. If you've discovered how difficult and time consuming it can be to check that your building's installations, plumbing and furniture are "in place", with this technology, it will be much easier to coordinate your execution teams.

For example, you can use real-time rendering to create time-lapse videos and share them with your construction team to make everyone understand what they need to do and when.

Finally, architectural visualization is a great investment in communication and marketing.

Combining 3D rendering with real-time rendering, virtual reality, augmented reality, and 360° panoramic imagery is the most professional and effective way to promote your work by engaging customers on breathtaking virtual tours and compelling immersive experiences.
