Begin at top vertex of polygon 2. A fast and simple object-space method for identifying the back algorifhm of a polyhedron is based on the “inside-outside” tests. Build the left and right subtrees recursively.

The main disadvantage of ray casting is that the method is slow. Alborithm is applied very efficiently on surfaces of polygon. The intensity field then stores the RGB components of the surface color at that point and the percent of pixel coverage. Before drawing P, we make the following tests.

It is an image-space method to identify visible surface. Begin at top vertex of polygon. For the scene below, the visible surfaces are different for orthographic or perspective projection. Back face culling View-frustrum culling Detail culling Occlusion culling. Visible Surface Determination HyperGraph home page.

As there is nothing in front of the rrmoval Bwe have put NIL. Also, for color shading we must compute the normal for all of the polygons anyway. The frame buffer is used backfade store the intensity value of color value at each position x, y. Thus object depths can be compared by comparing the z-values.

The depth and opacity values are used to determine the final color of a pixel. Surfaces can be processed in any order. Simplest to use maximum z value.

Choose a polygon from each side — split scene again. This method for solving the hidden-surface problem is often referred to as the painter’s algorithm. Same as with normal vector.

It is just the opposite condition for a right handed viewing system. Disadvantage Waste time drawing hidden objects Z-precision errors May have to use point sampling Very important.

The key data structure in the A-buffer is the accumulation buffer. As shown in figure cwe will first process the node B. Introductory Computer Graphics David Luebke.

## Visible Surface Detection

Let us take the polygon P at the end of the list. This method is developed by Cutmull. Recursively divide each side until each node contains only 1 polygon. Start at root polygon. Cells or rooms F Model scene as a graph: Put all the nodes that are in front of root A to the left side of node A and put all those nodes that are behind the root A to the right side as shown in figure b.

## Back Face Removal

Choose polygon arbitrarily Divide scene into front relative to normal and back half-spaces. If all the tests fail, then we split either P or Q using the plane of the other. Add subsequent edges based on whether they are inside or outside. Partition all the other polygons in the scene to the back left subtree or the front right subtree. The basic idea is to test the Z-depth of each surface to determine the closest visible surface.

### Computer Graphics Visible Surface Detection

The 0 value for z-coordinate indicates back bcakface pane and 1 value for z-coordinates indicates front clipping pane. Standard equation of a plane in 3 space: To override the closer polygons from the far ones, two buffers named frame buffer and depth buffer, are used. The A-buffer method is an extension of the depth-buffer method. The new cut polygons are inserting into the depth order and the process continues.

### Computer Graphics

The surface depth is measured from the view plane along algoorithm z axis of a viewing system. The tests for determining surface visibility within an area can be stated in terms of these four classifications. Normal to the plane is the vector A ,B,C.

You only need to perform depth calculations when multiple surfaces have their flags turned on at a certain scan-line position.

Auth with alborithm network: Given three points in space x1 ,y1,z1x2,y2,z2x3,y3,z3 the equation of the plane through these points is given by.

If the eye is in front of the root, then.
