    Considerable interest in scene synthesis has focused on fractal techniques such as 1/f noise filtering. However, these techniques produce poor synthetic ocean scenes. A superior technique is presented here that used an empirical sea spectrum model to represent a fully developed sea in nautre. A computer program has been written whereby a user supplies a wind velocity, and a two-dimensional Fourier... View full abstract»

  • A Configurable Pixel Cache for Fast Image Generation

    This article describes an approach to fast image generation that uses a high-speed serial scan converter, a somewhat slower frame buffer, and a pixel cache to match the bandwidth between the two. Cache hit rates are improved by configuring the cache to buffer either 4 × 4 or 16 × 1 tiles of frame memory, depending on the type of operation being performed. For line drawing, the implenme...

    In this article we explore the possibility of a VLSI chip for ray tracing bicubic patches in Bezier form. The purpose of the chip is to calculate the intersection point of a ray with the bicubic patch to a specified level of accuracy, returning parameter values (u,v) specifying the location of the intersection on the patch, and a parameter value, t, which specifies the location of the intersection...

    Many proposals using object-oriented data models for engineering objects have appeared in the literature. These data models try to represent the data in engineering systems more naturally by organizing it logically and/or physically into objects relevant to the engineering applications using the database. In this article we review and examine several of these proposed data models to identif import... View full abstract»
