Trace Ray

The Trace Ray Node requires a point of Origin and a Direction to generate a ray. If the ray hits an object’s surface, information such as the position and surface normals at the hit point are computed and output.

This Node can trace a ray from a user-defined Origin. If the sample hits an object surface, the distance to the collision point, its position and its surface Normals can be output, for example
