Is it possible to use OpenRL buffers in OpenCL ? It seems the OpenCL context needs to be created in a special way (enabling some extension), am I right?

Hi,



We are currently providing the legacy OpenRL SDK as a means for developers to learn the concepts and techniques of ray tracing in preparation for our future ray tracing technologies. Future ray tracing hardware will expose a new API that improves interaction with compute and raster graphics tasks . For this reason, we have no plans to continue development of the OpenRL API or SDK.



Would you be able to provide some more information on what you are trying to do with OpenCL and OpenRL?



Regards,

James

I tested it on Ubuntu 10.04 with ATI 4650, StreamSdk 2.2 and it perfectly works.
