Integrating Occlusion Culling into LOD on GPU [article]

Chao Peng
2014 Pacific Conference on Computer Graphics and Applications  
In this paper, we present a novel rendering approach that seamlessly integrates occlusion culling with the LOD approach in a unified scheme towards the GPU architecture.  ...  Recently, GPU-based level-of-detail (LOD) approaches have been proposed to fast decrease the complexity of a 3D model, but applying only LOD approaches is usually not sufficient to achieve highly interactive  ...  The desired level of detail of the ith object is represented with a pair of vertex count and triangle count. We denote them as vc i and tc i , respectively.  ...

Parallel View-Dependent Out-of-Core Progressive Meshes [article]

Evgenij Derzapf, Nicolas Menzel, Michael Guthe
2010 International Symposium on Vision, Modeling, and Visualization  
A common way to deal with such models is to use multiple levels of detail (LODs), which represent a model at different complexity levels.  ...  Hierarchical level of detail (HLOD) algorithms are a common solution for this problem, but they have numerous disadvantages.  ...  Comparisons to David, Lucy and Sponza scene are not possible, because the split level is too high. With the occlusion-culling we reduce the number of active faces significantly (over 50%).  ...
