Hi there,

I was just curious which rendering technqiue the default Maya software renderer uses? Does it use a rasterizer or is it true ray tracing all the way?

I believe it's hybridized with raytracing secondary rays on demand.

This is the way most renderers used to work. Only more recently did everyone begin moving to pure raytracing.
