Here is a simple ray-tracer made using Pixel Bender 1.0. It supports ambient, diffuse, and specular lighting, as well as reflection and shadows. To keep things simple, only spheres are rendered.

What's with "Platform: Flash Player 10"?

It uses loops, dependent values, arrays, regions, and functions other than evaluatePixel, all of which is unsupported by Flash.

Cool demo of realtime raytracing on the GPU though.

Totally cool & I get it! Alas... for some reason it's rendering mostly black with pixelly fringes for me, with GPU, mac os x 10.5.5, PBT build 35.
