Image Description, by Paul Nettle

This screenshot was produced by some proof-of-concept visibility technology I've been working on recently.
  • The upper-left shows a bird's-eye view of the visible polygons as they relate to the viewer.
  • The upper-right pane shows the rendered image of the visible polygons only.
  • The lower-left pane shows the scene with no visibility solution applied.
  • The lower-right pane shows the non-conservative visibility solution.
  • This image is one frame from an animation of a very dynamic scene. You can download the animation and/or find more information on our website at:

    Hi there!
    Is that a polygon soup (I mean - does you use the conectivity of the triangles that compose the objects, or not...)?
    If so, I think there isn't a chance to run that kind of scene quickly, and - there is no need of that...think about it - who will mess the world data with the objects data and then 'process' them together?! Hmm, and all that to have the 'absolutely freedom'? but who need that?
    Well, simply I think that there isn't a good algo that will process that kind of scenes at 'realtime' speed...does yours do that?
