Object space algorithm: Back-Face removal. · No faces on the back of the object are displayed. · In general – about half of objects faces are back faces. Computer Graphics Lecture 8 Hidden Surface Removal Taku Komura 1 1 Or if N.V > 0 we are viewing the back face so polygon is obscured. . Tree construction and traversal (object-space ordering algorithm – good for relatively few static. Occluded surfaces: hidden surface removal (visibility). ▫ Back faces: back face culling. ▫ Faces OpenGL): Z-buffer (or depth buffer) algorithm. ▫ Requires lots .

Begin at top vertex of polygon. Before drawing P, we make the following tests. For a 3 x 3 matrix of coefficients the determinant may be expressed as either: The intensity field then stores a pointer to a linked list of surface data. Reject intersections that lie outside the polygon. For a perspective projection, it is a little more complicated.

For a 3 x 3 matrix of coefficients the determinant may be expressed as either:. Surfaces can be processed in any order. Explain Back – Face Removal Algorithm. Try to split polygons along good dividing plane Intersecting polygon splitting may be costly Cheap to check visibility once tree is set up. Depth sorting method uses both image space and object-space operations. Place the first edge in the tree as root.

Visible Surface Detection

If all the tests fail, then we split either P or Q using the plane of the other. The main disadvantage of ray casting is that the method is slow. Visible Surface Determination HyperGraph home page. Given three points in space x1 ,y1,z1x2,y2,z2x3,y3,z3 the equation of the plane through these points is given comptuer. A Z-buffer is used to store depth values for each x,y position as surfaces are proceeds and the frame buffer ocmputer the memory values for each position.


Key issue is order determination. The scan conversion of the polygon surfaces is performed in image space.

Even if we use another algorithm for visible surface determination, the back-face cull is a good pre-processing step. The sides will be invisible for an orthographic projection, but not for a perspective projection. This algorithm compares surface depths at each pixel position on the on the projection plane. Build the left and right subtrees recursively. The tests for determining surface visibility within an area can be stated in terms of these four classifications.

Front, Back and On lists — done by comparing the normal vector of the plane with that of each polygon. Accept the cokputer remaining intersection — that is, the intersection with the smallest value of the parameter along the line.

Spatial Sorting Chung Ji Hye. To facilitate the search for surfaces crossing a given scan-line, an active list of edges is formed. Auth with social network: As there is nothing in front of the node Bwe have put NIL. In this method each surface algoritym processed separately one pixel position at a time across the surface.

Hidden Surface Removal

When we view a picture containing non-transparent objects and surfaces, then we cannot see those objects from view which are behind from objects closer to eye. Choose polygon arbitrarily Divide scene into front relative to normal and grraphics half-spaces. However, we have node C at back of node Bso node C will go to the right side of node B. Partition all the other polygons in the scene to the back left subtree or the front right subtree.


The depth values for a pixel are compared and the closest smallest z surface determines the color to be displayed in the frame buffer.

Computer Graphics

The algorithm proceeds just like the depth buffer algorithm. Ray casting is a brute force technique that makes no use of pixel coherence. In general, if V is a vector in the viewing direction from the eye or “camera” position, then this polygon is a back face if. Split any polygon lying on both sides. The new algoriyhm polygons are inserting into the depth order and the process continues.

This simple method is only correct for an orthographic projection. You get question papers, syllabus, subject analysis, answers – all in one app. Divide the total viewing area into smaller and smaller rectangles until each small area is the projection of part of a single visible surface or no surface at all.

We can simplify this test by considering the normal vector N to a polygon surface, which has Cartesian components A, B, C. Recursively calculate x-coordinate values down left edge of polygon. Published by Tyler Maxwell Modified over 3 years ago.

Used only for solid objects modeled as a polygon mesh.
