Order independent transparency for image composition parallel rendering machines

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this paper, a hybrid architecture composed of both the object-order and the image-order rendering engines is proposed to achieve the order independent transparency on the image composition architecture. The proposed architecture utilizes the features of the object-order which may provide high performance and the image-order which can obtain the depth order of all primitives from a viewpoint for a given pixel. We will discuss a scalable architecture for image order rendering engines to improve the processing capability of the transparent primitives, a load distribution technique for hardware efficiency, and a preliminary timing analysis.
