Explain Back – Face Removal Algorithm. Right Handed coordinate System. The algorithm proceeds just like the depth buffer algorithm.

Back Face Removal

If negative — cull, since normal points away from viewer. For a 3 x 3 matrix of coefficients the determinant may be expressed as either:.

Edges that span the extension of an edge that is already in the tree are split into two and both are added to the tree. Since in general about half of the faces of objects are are back faces this algorithm will remove about half of the total polygons in the image. If the eye is in front of the root, then. Build the left and right subtrees recursively. The depth values for a pixel are compared and the closest smallest z surface determines the color to be displayed in the frame buffer. A lot of computation required at start.

Once we have the regions — need priority list BSP tree can be traversed to yield a correct priority list for an arbitrary viewpoint. If the 3 points are collinear then the normal A ,B,C will be 0,0,0. There are two other matrices obtained by replacing the coefficients in each column by the constants c 1 and c 2 respectively. This method for solving the hidden-surface problem is often referred to as the painter’s algorithm. Begin at top vertex of polygon 2. To override the closer polygons from the far ones, two buffers named frame buffer and depth buffer, are used.


We must remove these hidden surfaces to get a realistic screen image. Point 3 – 2. Choose polygon arbitrarily Divide scene into front relative to normal and back half-spaces.

Used only for solid objects modeled as a polygon mesh. The identification and removal of these surfaces is called Hidden-surface problem.

If any of the following tests is positive, then we can assume P can be drawn before Q. If all the tests fail, then we split either P or Q using the plane of the other.

Try to split polygons along good dividing plane Intersecting polygon splitting may be costly Cheap to check visibility once tree is set up. All polygons are opaque What polygons are visible with respect to your view frustum? The frame buffer is used to store the intensity value of color value at each position x, y. For a 3 x 3 matrix of coefficients the determinant may be expressed as either: If you wish to download it, please recommend it to your friends in any social system. For a perspective projection, we must determine if the Center of Projection COP is inside or outside of the planes of the polygons of the object.

If viewer is in front half-space, draw polygons behind root first, then the root polygon, then polygons in front.

Classification of Visible-Surface Detection Algorithms

Back face culling View-frustrum culling Detail culling Occlusion culling. If viewer is in back half-space, draw polygons in front of root first, then the root polygon, algortihm polygons behind. In these packages, plane parameters A, B, C and D can be calculated from polygon vertex coordinates specified in a clockwise direction unlike the counterclockwise direction used in a right-handed system.


Subsequent x-values for each scanline calculated from starting x-value. Also, for color shading we must compute the normal for all of the polygons anyway. If polygon is on edge — either can be used. Similar methods can be used in packages computre employ a left-handed viewing system.

As there is nothing in front of the node Bwe have put NIL. Can be used to generate correct visibility for arbitrary views. Download ppt “Hidden Surface Removal”. For the scene below, the visible gemoval are different graohics orthographic or perspective projection. To use this website, you must agree to our Privacy Policy bqckface, including cookie policy.

Introductory text, Chapter 13, all of it Or equivalents in other texts, look out for: Ray casting is easy to implement for polygonal models because the only calculation required is the intersection of a line with a plane. Collisions and Intersections When objects move, test for collision. 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.

Computer Graphics Visible Surface Detection

Normal to the plane is the vector A ,B,C. Given three points in space x1 ,y1,z1x2,y2,z2x3,y3,z3 the equation of the plane through these points is given by. Auth with social network: When projecting surfaces, check for intersections.

The key data structure in the A-buffer is the accumulation buffer. Initialise frame buffer to background colour. Advantage Simple to implement in hardware. Visible Surface Determination HyperGraph home page.

This simple method is only correct for an orthographic projection. This algorithm compares backfaxe depths at each pixel position on the on the projection plane.
