Image Description, by Remon van Vliet

This is a real-time raytracer i wrote in Java just as a little test to see if i could do it. It features reflection, shadows, phong lightning, adaptive subsampling and more. The subsampling obviously also works for reflected objects, reflected shadows, highlights etc.

The framerate isnt great at the moment but apart from the subsampling it isn't optimized at all yet and is actually a fairly generic raytracer.

Go to my site at and click Projects to see the applet in action. Note that some people will need Sun's 1.4 VM to run this properly.
