I was wondering if optics can do what I want before I spend the time diving deeply into it. I want to do time resolved ray tracing, i.e to be able to tell at each pixel how much light arrived within a small time span (i.e to build an x-y-time sensor rather than just an x-y sensor) rather than assume that light speed is infinite as is usually done.
As optix claims to also be able to do acoustics I thought that it may be possible but wanted to make sure.
also, is it possible to limit the number of bounces computer? I want to ignore complex paths (I need results from single and/or triple bounces only for different applications).
