- -1 < x/w < +1 (clip)
- -w < x < w
- -w < y < w
- 0 < z < w

View-frustum Culling

- Project all vertices
- Then cull

Group Culling

- Cull in World space

Group Culling

- Group polygons
- Cull groups
- Plane test

Groups

- Bounding volume hierarchies
- Bounding sphere
- Axis-aligned bounding boxes (AABB)
- Oriented bounding boxes (OBB)
- Discrete oriented planes (k-DOPs)
- Spatial Partitioning
- Octrees
- Binary space partition tree

Hierarchies

Sphere AABB OBB kDOP

Bounding Sphere Computation

- Propose a center
- Find radius that includes all vertices
- Minimal volume obtained
- if 4 supporting vertices touch the sphere
- Test also: degenerate case of 2 or 3 vertices
- Start with sphere through 2 vertices
- Test inclusion of other vertices in sequence
- If v is outside:
- Compute new sphere also supported by v
- Restart if a previously included vertex is outside this new sphere

AABB Computation

- Extrema along each primary axis

OBB Computation

- One face and one edge of convex polyhedron are part of OBB

OR

- Three edges of the convex polyhedron form part of the OBB

Separating Axis Theorem

- Disjoint convex polyhedrons, A and B, are separated along at least one of:
- An axis orthogonal to a face of A
- An axis orthogonal to a face of B
- An axis formed from the cross product of one edge from each of A and B

SAT example: Triangle/Box

- Box is axis-aligned
- 1) test the axes that are orthogonal to the faces of the box
- That is, x,y, and z

Triangle seen from side

Triangle/Box with SAT- Assume that they overlapped on x,y,z
- Must continue testing
- 2) Axis orthogonal to face of triangle

Triangle/Box with SAT

- If separating axis still not found…
- 3) Test axis: t=ebox x etriangle
- Example:
- x-axis from box: ebox=(1,0,0)
- etriangle=v1-v0
- Test all such combinations
- If there is at least one separating axis, then the objects do not intersect
- Otherwise they do

Hierarchical Culling

- Test for a group
- If outside frustum
- Cull
- If inside frustum
- Display
- Otherwise,
- Subdivide group into smaller groups
- Recurse for each group

Uniform Spatial Subdivision

- Decompose the objects (the entire simulated environment) into identical cells arranged in a fixed, regular grids (equal size boxes or voxels)
- To represent an object, only need to decide which cells are occupied. To perform collision detection, check if any cell is occupied by two object
- Storage: to represent an object at resolution of n voxels per dimension requires upto n3 cells
- Accuracy: solids can only be “approximated”

Octrees

- Quadtree is derived by subdividing a 2D-plane in both dimensions to form quadrants
- Octrees are a 3D-extension of quadtree
- Use divide-and-conquer
- Reduce storage requirements (in comparison to grids/voxels)

Bounding Volume Hierarchies

- Model Hierarchy:
- Each node has a simple volume that bounds a set of triangles
- Children contain volumes that each bound a different portion of the parent’s triangles
- A binary bounding volume hierarchy:

Designing BVH

- It should fit the original model as tightly as possible
- Testing two such volumes for overlap should be as fast as possible
- It should require the BV updates as infrequently as possible

Observations

- Simple primitives (spheres, AABBs, etc.) do very well with respect to the second constraint. But they cannot fit some long skinny primitives tightly.
- More complex primitives (minimal ellipsoids, OBBs, etc.) provide tight fits, but checking for overlap between them is relatively expensive.
- Cost of BV updates needs to be considered.

Trade-off in Choosing BV’sincreasing complexity & tightness of fit

decreasing cost of (overlap tests + BV update)

Fitting OBBs statistically

- Sample the convex hull of the geometry
- Find the mean and covariance matrix of the samples
- The mean will be the center of the box
- The eigenvectors of the covariance matrix are the principal directions – axes
- The principle directions tend to align along the longest axis, then the next longest that is orthogonal, and then the other orthogonal axis

Hierarchical Back-face Culling

- Cluster proximate polygons
- Keep orientations similar too
- For a group, find the half-space intersection
- If the eye lies in the common HS
- Cull group
- Coherence in traversal
- Subdivide half-space into partitions
- Query which partition eye lies in

Back-Patch Culling

- Create bounding volume for object
- Compute planes tangent to volume
- passing through eye
- Compute half-space intersection of these planes
- Compute bounding cone of normals of the object
- If normal cone lies in common half-space
- Cull Object

Silhouettes

- Edges between front and back faces
- Simple hack:
- Render the front-facing polygons
- Render the back-facing polygons (in black)
- A common edge gets over-written
- Render them as wide lines?
- Offset backfaces closer?

Results

Wireframe Translation Fattening

Exact Silhouettes

- For each edge check two adjacent faces
- Can compute hierarchically:
- If an entire group front or back facing
- Discard
- Otherwise
- Subdivide
- But consider boundaries between groups

Notion of Duality

- Dual of plane ax + by + cz + 1 = 0 is

point(a, b, c)

- And Dual of a point is a plane
- If point v is in +ve half-space of plane P
- Dual(P) is in +ve half-space of Dual (v)
- Dual of edge e between faces f1 and f2 is

edge Dual(plane(f1))-Dual(plane(f2))

“Dual” Approach

- Geometric duals
- silhouette-edge duals cross the view-point dual (plane)
- Coherence
- consecutive view-planes form a wedge
- Edge crossing the wedge is a silhouette update

Silhouette Algorithm Details

- Double-wedge point location query
- Partition space
- Octree, BAR-tree
- If region intersected by wedge
- recur

Quiz 5

- Explain how quadric error is used for mesh simplification.
- Define Mean curvature and Gaussian curvature of a surface.

Cells & Portals

- Goal: walk through architectural models (buildings, cities, catacombs)
- These divide naturally into cells
- Rooms, alcoves, corridors…
- Transparent portalsconnect cells
- Doorways, entrances, windows…
- Cells only see other cells through portals

Cells & Portals

- An example:

Cells & Portals

- Idea:
- Cells form the basic unit of PVS
- Create an adjacency graphof cells
- Starting with cell containing eyepoint, traverse graph, rendering visible cells
- A cell is only visible if it can be seen through a sequence of portals
- So cell visibility reduces to testing portal sequences for a line of sight…

Cells and Portals

- Factor into View-independent & view-dependent
- Portal-portal visibility == line stabbing
- Linear program [Teller 1993]
- Cell-cell visibility stored in stab trees
- View-dependent eye-portal visibility stage further refines PVS at run time
- Slow pre-process
- Pointer following at render time

Linear Programming

- Canonical form: Find x that
- Maximizes cT x
- Objective function
- subject to Ax <= b
- -ve constraints
- where xi>= 0
- +ve constraints

Occlusion Query

- HW mechanism to determining “visibility” of a set of geometry
- After rendering geometry, query if any of the geometry could have or did modify the depth buffer.
- If Query answer is “false”, geometry could not have affected depth buffer
- If “true”, it could have or did modify depth buffer
- Ex: Render bounding box, Query

Occlusion Query

- Returns pixel count – the no. of pixels that pass
- May issue multiple queries at once before asking for the result of any one
- Applications can overlap the time it takes for the queries to return with other CPU work

Occlusion Query: How to Use

- (Optional) Disable Depth/Color Buffers
- (Optional) Disable any other irrelevant state
- Generate occlusion queries
- Begin ith occlusion query
- Render ith (bounding) geometry
- End occlusion query
- Do other CPU computation now
- (Optional) Enable Depth/Color Buffers
- (Optional) Re-enable any other state
- Get pixel count of ith query
- If (count > MAX_COUNT) render ith geometry

Occlusion Query: How to Use

- Generate occlusion queries

Gluint queries[N];

GLuint pixelCount;

glGenOcclusionQueriesNV(N, queries);

- Loop over queries

for (i = 0; i < N; i++) {

glBeginOcclusionQueryNV(queries[i]);

// render bounding box for ith geometry

glEndOcclusionQueryNV();

}

Occlusion Query: How to Use

- Get pixel counts

for (i = 0; i < N; i++) {

glGetOcclusionQueryuivNV(queries[i], GL_PIXEL_COUNT_NV,

&pixelCount);

if (pixelCount > MAX_COUNT)

// render ith geometry

}

Incremental Object Culling

- How valuable is it?
- Bounding box still must be filled
- Must Query against something
- More intelligent queries possible
- Big win if you use query for object that you were going to render in any case
- Can amortize:
- Skip query for visible objects for the next few frames
- Visible objects of last frame could occlude

Incremental Object Culling

- Useful for multi-pass algorithms
- Render scene (roughly) from front to back
- Draw big occluders (walls) first
- Issue queries for other objects in the scene
- If query returns 0 in a pass, skip the object in subsequent passes
- Works well if the first pass sets up the depth buffer only

Visibility From Region in 3D

- Find all supporting planes
- occluder and occludee in the same half-space
- Find a COP in that half-space of planes
- Clip occluders with planes parallel to supporting planes
- Render Scene
- Render clipped triangles
- Re-render triangles with occlusion query
