### Frustum Culling in OpenGL

• Introduction

• View Frustum

• Plane Equation

• Frustum Plane Extraction

• Frustum/Point/Sphere Inclusion Tests

Fall 2006 revised

• the volume of space that includes everything visible from a given viewpoint

• defined by six planes arranged in the shape of a pyramid with the top chopped off

• If a point is inside this volume then it's in the frustum and it's visible, and vice versa

• Visible here mean potentially visible. It might be behind another point that obscures it, but it's still in the frustum. … the scope of occlusion culling

• Divide the space into two halves; extends to infinity

• any given point is (in front of | behind | on) the plane.

• In R3, a plane is defined by four numbers:

• A plane equation: Ax + By + Cz +D = 0

• Idea:

• If object is not in frustum, do not send it through pipeline (it is not visible)

• Wrap the object in a bounding volume; test the bounding volume against frustum (in world coordinate system)

• Sphere, bounding boxes, …

• Frustum plane extraction

• Inclusion tests for different bounding volumes

Signed Distance to Left Plane

• Plane equations are further normalized to facilitate distance computation

d<0

Fall 2006 revised

• Use bounding spheres

• Can be conservative if the object is slender

• Use hierarchical bounding volume where appropriate (see next page)

• BoxInFrustum:

• complicated and expensive

• OBB: more so

Plane representation in R3

Fall 2006 revised

Occlusions in scene are common (culling important)

Geometric database can be huge; preprocessing is required to facilitate smooth viewing

Indoor Scenes

Fall 2006 revised

only load the rooms that are visible from the current room

Recall Pipeline…

Fall 2006 revised

the scene is (mostly) static and specified in their world coordinate (the modeling transform is identity)

the viewer navigates around them, changing the viewing transform only

• Algebraic equation

• Parametric equation

• Vector equation

• Depending on the application, select the most suitable equation

• In/out test

• Projection

Fall 2006 revised

Compute and display the screen-space bounding box of an AABB (axis-aligned bounding box)

Convert world coordinates to clip coordinates, perspective-divide to get window coordinates

Useful in GPU-assisted collision detection applications

Screen-Space Bounding Box (SSBB)

Fall 2006 revised

Useful for illustrating frustum culling

Given [-1,1]3 clip coordinates, determine their corresponding world coordinates to render
