What is this studio?
Ray Madness is a studio for 3D rendering projects that make use of calculations of rays, which include raytracers, raymarchers, pathtracers, and raycasters.
What is a raytracer?
A raytracer is a technique for displaying 3D objects onto a 2D screen, like the one on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. The idea is to trace rays out of a virtual "camera", with each pixel on the camera's sensor corresponding to a pixel on the screen. Next, the program determines where each ray of light from each pixel intersects a 3D scene, which is the object that that pixel sees. From that point, a raytracer then calculates the color that the point on that surface should be. Finally, the raytracer sets the pixel to that color, usually using the "pen" extension if made on Scratch.
You may add #ray, #madness, and/or #rayMadness to popularize the studio, and if you have any ray-based projects you would like added, just ask in the comment section!
If you have a cool ray-project, put the link in the comment section and ask it to be added to the studio! If you really like creating ray-projects on Scratch, you can ask to become a curator in the comment section. If you like viewing ray-projects on Scratch and think they are cool, you can follow the studio to receive notifications upon new activity. Activity includes new projects, comments, replies, and curator/role updates.
