Backwards Raytracing

Backwards Raytracing is a type of raytracing in which the virtual environment has a pre-fixed level of global brightness, and rays are cast out in different directions from the user viewpoint, and the level of lighting for different surfaces is determined by the number of rays that strike each.

Backwards raytracing is almost always too slow for real-time use, and is generally used for pre-rendered scenes.
