Embree 1.0 Beta

http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/embree-photo-realistic-ray-tracing-kernels/

This build requires a CPU with at least SSE3 support

If you happen to own a CPU with SSE4.2 support (such as the latest Sandy Bridge Intel CPUs) you should try this build instead

Will only run on Windows 7

example usage:

cd "your extraction path"\bin
embree.exe -c ../models/cornell_box.ecs

Open a new commandline window, change into the embree\bin directory and type:
"embree --help"

I'm using MSVC 2008 (non-express). I didn't get my hands on the Intel compiler yet. I've searched long for a solution for the "intrinsic function, cannot be defined" error, but I couldn't find one that works besides RENAMING all the offending functions... seems like that is the only way to get it to work in MSVC 2008.
And you also have to comment out the __SEE4_2___ part as outlined in the README

Hi Bread,
Thanks for the builds :)
Couple of questions,
I'm using msvc 2008 (9) express, what compiler are you using? msvc or intel?
and lastly...
What did you change in the common/sys/platform.h file to compile SSE3? or did you go another route?
Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge :)
Cheers,
~Tung

Embree can directly load obj files, refer to the commandline instructions (embree --help) on how to add objects, lights etc.
The .ecs files are simply commandline instructions
There is also a simple XML format which some examples use

I won't provide a build for Windows Vista.
The instructions assume that you know how to use a commandline interface, you are expected to run the command from the bin directory.

could you create one for windows vista, also how do i get it do work. it says
- 'embree' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Feeling talkative?
