A Lazy Object-Space Shading Architecture With Decoupled Sampling [article]

Christopher A. Burns, Kayvon Fatahalian, William R. Mark
2010 High Performance Graphics  
Thus we perform object-space shading that efficiencly supports motion and defocus blur, but do not require micropolygons to achieve a shading rate of one sample per pixel.  ...  We find that in comparison to a Reyes micropolygon rendering pipeline, decoupling geometric sampling rate from shading rate permits the use of meshes containing an order of magnitude fewer vertices with  ...  We also especially thank Solomon Boulos, Pat Hanrahan and the Stanford Graphics Lab for advise and for providing access to crucial source code and test scenes.  ...
