rtcGetGeometry - returns the geometry bound to the specified geometry ID
#include <embree3/rtcore.h> RTCGeometry rtcGetGeometry(RTCScene scene, unsigned int geomID);
The rtcGetGeometry function returns the geometry that is bound to the specified geometry ID (geomID argument) for the specified scene (scene argument). This function just looks up the handle and does not increment the reference count. If you want to get ownership of the handle, you need to additionally call rtcRetainGeometry. For this reason, this function is fast and can be used during rendering. However, it is generally recommended to store the geometry handle inside the application's geometry representation and look up the geometry handle from that representation directly.
On failure NULL is returned and an error code is set that can be queried using rtcGetDeviceError.
