Square Enix-owned studio Luminous Productions has released a short tech demo showing off the capabilities of path-tracing technology, to be a featured as part of the studio's own "Luminous Engine".

The impressive two-minute clip features a young actor as she sits in a darkly-lit dressing room, applying her make-up. Rendered in real-time on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti processor, the "Back Stage" demo is designed to highlight the shadow, movement, lighting, reflection and emotion captured in the model's performance. Path-tracing achieves this by unifying all light and shadow effects into a single algorithm, and tracking it in real-time.
