So! I'm told there's a Unity build with raytracing (DXR) goodies, i.e. HD render pipeline with optional raytracing for various bits. Here on github:

Whoa, looks like I've been in build system team for two years already. Time flies! Here's a blogpost, with some neat tools we've built.

Intel's OpenImageDenoise, an open source denoising library (currently CPU based?) is out!

Kinda tempted to try it out on my toy path tracer :)

I added flame chart profiler output option to Clang, so I could see where exactly time goes while it's compiling. Already found some good stuff! Here's a blog post with info

I made a blog! Where I (again) rant about lack of "where did compile time go?" tools in C++ compilers, and end with a cliffhanger.

"Visual Studio IDE is just fine being a 32-bit process", they said :) And now it doesn't have enough memory to *close itself*.

Sure, I am working with the solution that contains whole llvm/clang source code, which is massive. But still!

Looks like in 2018 I managed to delete more code than I added. Happy with the general downward slope. Gotta delete more :)

The most excellent and lamentable tragedy of Flat UI Design, in two acts.

I updated my toy path tracer Unity C# Burst code with a 4-wide HitSpheres implementation. PC 84->133 Mray/s, Mac 36->60 Mray/s.

Is good Friday. Removing and from Unity main codebase, since we stopped using them a while ago. They served a good purpose between 2010 and ~2017, but time to let go.

I did a talk on Entity Component Systems & Data Oriented Design for junior/future engineers here at Unity (not Unity specific at all). Slides: and toy project (C++) for it:
