RayTK is a library of TouchDesigner components that construct raymarching shaders (and other types of shaders) with networks of COMPs using the TouchDesigner network editor.

RayTK consists of a set of operator (ROP) components, and tools for working with them.

The goal of RayTK is to allow artists without a strong knowledge of GLSL to render raymarched scenes, using the familiar elements of the TouchDesigner network editor. Raymarching has been around for a long time, but it is very different from traditional rendering, and it requires a strong knowledge of GLSL and vector math.
