DNA Models main board development celebrity newsletter Balls Path tracing is a realistic lighting algorithm that simulates light bouncing around a scene. This path tracer uses WebGL for realtime performance and supports diffuse, mirrored, and glossy surfaces. The path tracer is continually rendering, so the scene will start off grainy and become smoother over time. Here's how to interact with it: Add an object using the "Add Sphere" or "Add Cube" buttons Select an object by clicking on it Move the selection along the face of its selection box by dragging around on that face Delete the selection using the backspace key Rotate the camera by dragging the background
