Open-Source Ray-Tracing


hCell is a C++ dynamic link library, which allows representing raster images via hexagonical picture elements instead of classical quadratic ones. This leads to hexagonical neighborhood system, where each picture element has 6 equidistant neighbors. Such neighborhood system finds its application in computer vision and pattern recognition problems. Also, the library is well suited for creating artistic photo manipulation effects. The code is written entirely in Microsoft Visual C++ with using the OpenCV library.
