Hi all, I'm sorry if this is a dumb question. Does Embree offer BVH building in parallel?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

yes, Embree builds BVH in parallel. You can also choose different tasking systems (TBB, OpenMP, pthread).

The BVHBuilder API is also multithreaded https://www.embree.org/api.html#rtcbuildbvh

Cheers
