Which step of the graphics pipeline does ray tracing take place in?

My interpretation here is this is a pipeline for rasterization but not including ray tracing? Not so sure<

Yes, @ziyicui2022 is correct! Ray tracing and rasterizing are two different ways of generating images. We'll talk about ray tracing a bit later in the class- for now we're only focused on the rasterization pipeline.
