The most efficient general occlusion culling techniques are based on hardware accelerated occlusion queries. Although in many cases these techniques can considerably improve performance, they may still reduce efficiency compared to simple view frustum culling, especially in the case of low depth complexity. This prevented the broad use of occlusion culling in most commercial applications. In this paper we present a new conservative method to solve this problem, where the main idea is to use a… CONTINUE READING
