Hi, I would like to build a more fundamental understanding of how Cycles works from a high level. I’ve got Blender source downloaded and have made some changes successfully but lack an understanding of the big picture of Cycles.
I haven’t found any resources that goes into any sort of detail about how Cycles code is structured and run, and the role of each component and how they work together. In particular, I’ve struggled to gain sufficient insight into the role of, for example, class properties throughout the system.
Could I have a conversation with someone knowledgeable about it as a way to get more familiar with the code and able to confidently make changes, and as a reference for future developers new to read when starting cycles development.
