Ray-Traced Global Illumination
Ray-Traced Global Illumination is a ray tracing feature in the High Definition Render Pipeline (HDRP). It's a more accurate alternative to Screen Space Global Illumination, Light Probes and lightmaps.

Using Ray-Traced Global Illumination
This feature replaces the Screen Space Global Illumination Volume override, so the initial setup is similar. To setup ray traced global illumination on your Volume:
- Follow the Enabling Screen Space Global Illumination and Using Screen Space Global Illumination steps to set up the Screen Space Global Illumination override on your Volume.
- Go to Edit > Project Settings > Frame Settings (Default Values) > Camera Rendering and enable Ray Tracing.
- Select your Volume in the Hierarchy.
- In the Inspector, go to the Screen Space Global Illumination override and enable Ray Tracing. If you don't see a Ray Tracing option, make sure your HDRP Project supports ray tracing. For information on setting up ray tracing in HDRP, see Getting started with ray tracing.
HDRP implements ray-traced global illumination on top of the Screen Space Global Illumination override. For information on the properties that control this effect, see Ray-traced properties.
