Forward Raytracing

Forward raytracing is a type of raytracing in which the virtual scene attempts to simulate perfect realism by sending out rays of light from a light source, and works out where the rays end up, after being reflected off of scene surfaces. This spattering is then used to generate shadows and shading in a 3D environment.

This is the fastest method of raytracing, and the one most often used, currently, for real-time environments.
