Parallel/Multiprocessor Ray Tracing Library - runtime - serial flavour
Tachyon is a portable, high performance parallel ray tracing system supporting MPI and multithreaded implementations. Tachyon is built as a C callable library, which can be used within applications.
Tachyon implements all of the basic geometric primitives such as triangles, planes, spheres, cylinders, etc. Some of the goals in developing Tachyon were to make it fast and for it to parallelize well. These are what set it apart from more full-featured programs like POV-Ray, Rayshade, and others. Tachyon supports enough features to be an excellent alternative to slower programs for demanding animation and scientific visualization tasks.
This package provides the shared library required to run third party program compiled against the tachyon C library built for serial platforms. To compile your own programs you also need to install the concomitant libtachyon-serial-0-dev package.
