rtcReleaseDevice(3) Embree Ray Tracing Kernels 3 rtcReleaseDevice(3)

NAME


rtcReleaseDevice - decrements the device reference count

    

SYNOPSIS


#include <embree3/rtcore.h>
void rtcReleaseDevice(RTCDevice device);

    

DESCRIPTION

Device objects are reference counted. The rtcReleaseDevice function decrements the reference count of the passed device object (device argument). When the reference count falls to 0, the device gets destroyed.

All objects created from the device (like scenes, geometries, etc.) hold a reference to the device, thus the device will not get destroyed unless these objects are destroyed first.

EXIT STATUS

On failure an error code is set that can be queried using rtcGetDeviceError.
