NAME

rtcOccluded4/8/16 - finds any hits for a ray packet

SYNOPSIS

#include <embree3/rtcore.h>

void rtcOccluded4(
  const int* valid,
  RTCScene scene,
  struct RTCIntersectContext* context,
  struct RTCRay4* ray
);

void rtcOccluded8(
  const int* valid,
  RTCScene scene,
  struct RTCIntersectContext* context,
  struct RTCRay8* ray
);

void rtcOccluded16(
  const int* valid,
  RTCScene scene,
  struct RTCIntersectContext* context,
  struct RTCRay16* ray
);

DESCRIPTION

The rtcOccluded4/8/16 functions checks for each active ray of the ray packet of size 4, 8, or 16 (ray argument) whether there is any hit with the scene (scene argument). See Section [rtcOccluded1] for a description of how to set up and trace occlusion rays.

A ray valid mask must be provided (valid argument) which stores one 32-bit integer (-1 means valid and 0 invalid) per ray in the packet. Only active rays are processed, and hit data of inactive rays is not changed.

The implementation of these functions is guaranteed to invoke callback functions always with the same ray packet size and ordering of rays as specified initially.

For rtcOccluded4 the ray packet must be aligned to 16 bytes, for rtcOccluded8 the alignment must be 32 bytes, and for rtcOccluded16 the alignment must be 64 bytes.

The rtcOccluded4, rtcOccluded8 and rtcOccluded16 functions may change the ray packet size and ray order when calling back into intersect filter functions or user geometry callbacks. Under some conditions the application can assume packets to stay intakt, which can determined by querying the RTC_DEVICE_PROPERTY_NATIVE_RAY4_SUPPORTED, RTC_DEVICE_PROPERTY_NATIVE_RAY8_SUPPORTED, RTC_DEVICE_PROPERTY_NATIVE_RAY16_SUPPORTED properties through the rtcGetDeviceProperty function. See [rtcGetDeviceProperty] for more information.

EXIT STATUS

For performance reasons this function does not do any error checks, thus will not set any error flags on failure.
