The Khronos ANARI working group is defining an open, royalty-free API standard for cross-vendor access to state-of-the-art rendering engines. ANARI will enable experts in domains such as scientific visualization to leverage the latest rendering techniques without needing to use low-level rendering APIs. Graphics vendors will use the ANARI API to enable visualization engines, libraries, and applications with portable access to a diverse range of rendering technologies, including ray tracing. Recently ANARI Working Group members shared an update on their progress towards an initial specification at a Khronos Webinar. Have a look at this Khronos Blog to watch or listen to the webinar, or see a recap of the discussion and audience questions here.
