Making portal graphics in the more common vertex based engines is quite easy anyway; just render the scene twice, once from the PoV of the player character and one from the output of the portal, then render the one from the portal inside the input portal. Of course in the game portals are bi-directional and you might be able to see both portals in which case you'd need to render three PoVs, and I dare say you could limit the screen area you need to render for at least half of the scenes with a very minimal number of spottable differences (maybe shadows would be borked for example). In a ray tracing scheme you'd need to implement a magic wormhole that takes rays heading into the input portal and translate them over to the output portal for every ray that goes there, and I'm not completely sure whether that's more or less easy to implement in practice.
i'm not super familiar with the standard way to do it, but this goes through some of the ideas/options: https://torinmr.github.io/cs148/. still seems like ray tracing (mentioned first) is the easiest. you're already tracking rays of light. right now i have a Scene.cast_ray(LightBeam&) method, which uses the Geometry.intersect(LightBeam&) method; i think i'd just have to allow the PortalGeometry access to the Scene as well (PortalGeometry.intersect(LightBeam&, Scene*)), which would internally cast another ray if the portal was hit by the first beam (i.e., create another LightBeam based on the transform to be put into another Scene.cast_ray).

and just typing that gave me a pinched nerve in the shoulder, so that was a fun new experience. yikes, and ow. as i try to move my body.

At the moment GOG has many nice discounts.

Check out Mission Critical - a gem of a sci-fi adventure.
Do not check out Maize. What a load of something unpleasant.

Thanks to Disney +, i had the Oportunity to watch booth Versions of the Lion King, Original and Remake, and the First Frozen Movie,
Lion King was pretty good, the Drawn Original is a Classic, and this new Version whit Computer Animated Animals was also good, and it looks fantastik, they even got the Animations this Time a bit more "Realistic" as far as you can make Speaking Animals Realistic..

Frozen was better than i expectet, i though its a Movie for Little Girls, but even for a 35 Year old Man like me, it was quite entertaining.. ^^
Unfortunaly, as i watched the 2 Movies bevor, i was pretty tired yesterday, so it seems like i missed the Ending, but as this is a Streaming App, i can just "Rewind" and watch the Ending ^^

The Second Frozen Movie wasnt available yesterday, but i dont think they will wait that long until the put it on the plattform..

This Evening, i wants to watch Booth Versions of Alaadin, which should also be pretty good..

I was looking at the caterpillar s61 (a phone with build-in infrared camera and a laser distance measuring tool). And I was wondering if the Pyra could handle that, and wondering if it would be useful...then I saw this:

Ep 7 has finally hit broadcast TV here, although I saw that at the cinema when it came out, and I don't think I want to watch it again just yet. I'm waiting for ep8, but I don't think I'll bother with ep9. Reportedly, ep9 mainly just undoes everything ep8 does, and I'm not sure I want to watch anything that pofaced.
