Creators of Metro: Exodus told how they use RTX technology

On Nvidia channel the video interview of one of Metro developers was published: Exodus in which it tells about use of RTX technology in a game.

of Nvidia RTX is the platform which contains some useful tools for developers opening access to computer graphics of new level. The platform is available only to the new generation of the video cards Nvidia GeForce RTX constructed on architecture of Turing. The main feature of Nvidia RTX - existence of a possibility of trace of beams in real time.

Trace of beams of Nvidia RTX has to accelerate development of games and make life more difficult for monsters.

the New video cards Turing RTX 2080 from Nvidia were a subject of this year not without the bases. Their jump in crude productivity still a little indistinct, at least, from the point of view of RTX 2080 speed against GTX 1080. But innovations which they enter illusive rays of light of Nvidia which force shadows and reflection to look quite beautiful and realistic, and use of AI for creation of equally sharp, smooth edges as traditional technologies of smoothing really impress. Programmer 4A Games Ben Archard told

about the forthcoming post-apocalyptic adventure of Metro: Exodus.

Is absolutely new set of hardware. It is the same story from history of development of games. Use of new technologies is suitable for tiny aspects of lighting. Various methods which we created for many years as standard such as global lighting, approach that light works is realistic, but they solve only one part. These are separate elements which unite at the end, but you have to create them in cuts on all frame. That RTX allows us to do, it to push with

all this on a background. It still there, and we have an access to it - the engine can still use these things. But now we can tell: "Actually, let's simplify everything, let's switch-off all our light probes, all our cheresstrochny fires, let's get rid of all this, and just let's have one light and to do it correctly. Let's simulate physically it as it exists in the nature".

Trace of beams allows us to simplify things and to develop absolutely new global system of lighting which actually is good physical system.

I it has an effect helping artists and designers because they have much less settings which they need to do. They can tell: "My God, it actually physically precisely, it looks beautifully, and all this for us".
