Shadowing effects dramatically enhance the realism of virtual environments by providing useful visual cues. Shadow mapping is an efficient algorithm for real-time shadow rendering, which is extensively adopted in real-time applications by its generality and efficiency. However, shadow mapping usually suffers from the inherent aliasing errors due to the image-based nature. In this paper, we present the Parallel-Split Shadow Maps (PSSMs) scheme, which splits the view frustum into different parts… CONTINUE READING
