Creative Edge Software adds real-time ray tracing for iC3D. Creative Edge Software was one of the first companies to deliver full ray tracing capabilities to all levels of packaging creatives with the launch of iC3D v4.0 in May 2016. By integrating ray tracing technology into the iC3D all-in-one package, creatives and brand owners were able to achieve photorealistic design mockups at any stage without the need for specialist programs or third-party services. With the development of the iC3D real-time ray tracer as the latest upgrade to iC3D v5.0, Creative Edge Software said it has succeeded in combining the speed benefits of OpenGL technology, but using ray tracing to enable simultaneous photographic rendering of changes as they are made.
