Recently I have developed and interest in Ray Tracing and like most computer graphics tutorials online there is nothing regarding implementation for a beginner like myself.
So far I have only done real time rendering (DirectX), however I understand the basics of Ray Tracing but I want to buy a book before proceeding any further. I've taken a look at Physically Based Rendering: From Theory to Implementation (I want to learn Ray Tracing with a Physically Based Approach so I thought this would be great) but I don't think it's good for a beginner since there's not much emphasis on the code.
When I was learning DirectX 11 everyone recommended Frank Luna's Introduction to 3D Game Programming, which was great since it covered all the basics and also a few advanced topics like SSAO with an approach a beginner could understand. Is there something like this for Ray Tracing?
