ChessBase 16 - The new features Part 4

by Arne Kaehler - 16/11/2020

ChessBase 16 is already in the starting blocks and will be released on 17th November 2020. Now everyone wants to know: what are the new features in this version? What innovations are on the horizon? And what is the "key to new ideas"? Jeroen Van Den Belt, who has been active for ChessBase since Fritz 7, presents interesting innovations in the video. Part 4 of the five-part series deals with "raytracing", what it means and what it can be used for. Photo: ChessBase


Raytracing was already available with ChessBase 15, and it is an amazingly popular tool for creating pictures or videos of favourite positions, and for watching top players play chess away from the eternally same 2D board. Jeroen Van Den Belt explains what raytracing is, how it works and what else you can do with it in ChessBase 16.

Some Raytracing examples

In this five-part series, which is shown every day before ChessBase 16 is released, our programmers give us a small insight into the latest functions of our royal product.
