This paper describes techniques for improving the performance of image rendering on personal workstations by using CPU cycles going idle while the user is examining a static image on the screen. In that spirit, we believe that <i>a renderer's work is never done</i>. Our goal is to convey the most information to the user as early as possible, with image(More)
A modified formulation of oriented boxing called oriented slab boxing is presented. It almost doubles the speed of the oriented boxing component in B-spline intersection. The method used to accelerate B-spline intersection includes algorithmic improvements and parallelization of the algorithm at different levels of granularity to find an optimum solution on(More)
Pixel-planes is a logic-enhanced memory system for raster graphics and imaging. Although each pixel-memory is enhanced with a one-bit ALU, the system's real power comes from a tree of one-bit adders that can evaluate linear expressions <i>Ax+By+C</i> for every pixel <i>(x,y)</i> simultaneously, as fast as the ALUs and the memory <i>circuits</i> can accept(More)
