NVIDIA shows how Minecraft worlds will be with Ray Tracing
Expanding the amount of resources available to Minecraft players, NVIDIA announced that the game will now feature Ray Tracing technology with the launch of Minecraft with RTX.
To give a taste of what’s to come, NVIDIA has been working closely with some members of the community (including Razzleberries, BlockWorks and GeminiTay) to give an idea of what these areas will look like. Check out the images below:
Check out the descriptions of the worlds mentioned above:
- Of Temples and Totems RTX by Razzleberries – A world of adventure that takes players to explore and compete in mysterious temple challenges. Each temple shows pixel-by-pixel lighting and shadows in real time, as well as global lighting that gives players a new level of immersion.
- Imagination Island RTX by BlockWorks – An amusement park ready to be explored, full of secrets and with four different territories, each dedicated to an element of Ray Tracing. In this scene we see the park’s visitor center, with light rays created in real time from the windows and reflecting on the floor.
- Crystal Palace RTX by GeminiTay – A fantasy-themed survival map featuring an exquisitely constructed castle. Ray Tracing shadows and a beautiful atmosphere add realism to this world created on a 1: 1 scale.
NVIDIA also introduced a number of tools and guides for the community to create immersive and realistic worlds, including tutorials to see how Minecraft’s path tracing with RTX works and a guide to converting a world to Bedrock Windows 10 Edition, which is the foundation of Minecraft RTX. Check some below:
- To create realistic textures – One presentation and tutorial which show in detail how Minecraft’s path tracing with RTX, PBR textures and how these functions work together to create stunning visuals. Includes a step-by-step guide for making your own PBR textures and texture packs.
- To convert Java worlds to RTX – NVIDIA made Minecraft creators a guide with the best tips to convert your world to Bedrock Windows 10 Edition, which is the foundation of Minecraft with RTX.
