I'm working on a simple project with my friend which I have to implement 2D Dynamic Shadows.


I've already gone through and Sight And Light 


I've read most of this too but didn't understand most parts of it.


I'm looking for an approach that is efficient, So the simplest and first thing that came to my mind was raycasting,

Since I'm a kind of a beginner in DirectX there were questions : 


- How can a ray detect i it hit something in the way to it's final point ?


Iterating through every object ? , It can easily be noticed by anyone that it is not efficient.


The lighting algorithms are easy, I'll appreciate it if anyone could help me with raycasting Or suggest a better way for 2D Lights.
