A project that adds real-time ray-tracing to the Maya viewport.
This project is still in very early development phases, but the goal of this project is to improve the workflow of artists by adding a real-time ray-traced scene renderer to the Maya viewport.
A renderer like this will eliminate the need to check a “slow” path tracer every time an artist would like to see the fully-lit scene. Our plug-in will allow live object editing in the Maya viewport at real-time framerates.
We aim to release this plug-in soon, so keep an eye out for more information, screenshots, and videos! But for the time being, here are a couple of work-in-progress shots of the Maya plug-in:
