This paper describes and experimentally evaluates three adap-tive spatial subdivision heuristics for sort-rst parallel graphics rendering on distributed-memory multicomputers. In sort-rst rendering, image-space, or screen, is divided into regions. Each processor is assigned one or multiple regions to render. Primitives in the scene are redistributed among the processors according to region assignments. The total number of primitives in the system may increase due to duplication of primi-tives… CONTINUE READING
