Fast Tree Ambient Occlusion Approximation

Jun Teng, Baogang Hu, Marc Jaeger
2006 2006 Second International Symposium on Plant Growth Modeling and Applications  
We present a fast ambient occlusion approximation algorithm for real-time tree rendering. The main contribution of the proposed method concerns the preprocessing stage of ambient occlusion.  ...  On each plant primitive, ambiant occlusion approximation is then defined from statistical inner cluster properties and a fast outer cluster occlusion.  ...  The ambient occlusion operates in two steps: a preprocessing step and the (real-time) rendering step.  ...
