  1. 1. Efficient real-time visibility testing

    Author : Erik Sintorn; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soft shadows; volumetric shadows; deep shadow-maps; order-independent transparency; hair; shadows; rendering; visibility;

    Abstract : Visibility testing is an integral part of many computer graphics algorithms. For example, algorithms that generate images with shadows, ambient occlusion, environment lighting or transparency all require an efficient means of establishing the visibility between two or more points in a virtual scene.

  2. 2. A Real-Time Soft Shadow Volume Algorithm

    Author : Ulf Assarsson; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; three-dimensional graphics and realism; shading; pixel shaders; graphics hardware; shadowing; soft shadows; computer graphics;

    Abstract : Rendering of shadows is a very important ingredient in three-dimensional graphics since they increase the level of realism and provide cues to spatial relationships. Area or volumetric light sources give rise to so called soft shadows, i.e., there is a smooth transition from no shadow to full shadow. READ MORE

  3. 3. Real-Time Algorithms and Intersection Test Methods for Computer Graphics

    Author : Tomas Möller; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; texture; ray tracing; radiosity; color; three-dimensional graphics and realism; virtual reality; algorithms; shadowing; shading;

    Abstract : In real-time computer graphics applications, at least three major forces are in conflict, namely, rendering speed, the level of realism, and interactivity. Therefore this thesis focuses on real-time algorithms that enhance the realism while maintaining high rendering speed, and on fast intersection test methods in order to speed up, for example, collision detection, picking processes and ray tracing.
