OptiX advanced samples

Will the OptiX advanced samples be ported to OptiX 7? If they will, is there an ETA?

Yes and no. We’ll post it here when they’re available.


David.

Please have a look into this thread now:

I’m unable to compile the new OptiX_Apps out of the box using Visual Studio 2019 version 16.4.0 . Here’s the output when running the 3rdparty.cmd from within the “x64 Native Tools Command Prompt for VS2019”. The rest of the build process works fine but I get compile errors since the Assimp library was not built.

CMake Error: Could not create named generator Visual Studio 16 2019 Win64

Thanks for the report. I’ve fixed the 3rdparty.cmake.

CMake stopped supporting the legacy way of specifying the generator architecture for MSVS 2019 with that “Win64” suffix on the generator string itself.
I changed the script to always use the -G and -A command line options instead.
