BVH2?

Hi,

Is there a simple way to get embree to generate a BVH2? I am following the example of "bvh_access.cpp" and trying to get it to generate a binary tree. I'd like to use it for other purposes, not for raytracing inside embree.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Embree does internall not use binary BVHs, however, you can use the BVH builder to build one. The bvh_builder tutorial uses the Embree BVH builder to build a binary BVH.
