This filter implements a simple but functional raytracing-based renderer. In fact, Filter Forge's sampling architecture is very close to raytracers – we also shoot 'rays' into the 'scene', but unlike raytracers where rays extend from a single origin point representing viewer's eye, Filter Forge's 'rays' (called samples) are parallel, and Filter Forge's 'scene' is simply an infinite procedurally textured view-aligned plane while a raytracer can use polygons and procedural geometry.
