A solution to the hidden surface elimination problem called Beam Tracing is described. Beam tracing is related to ray tracing but uses spatial coherence within the scene, and area coherence within the image to batch computations. Beam tracing is an object space solution to the hidden surface problem. Beam tracing is formulated in terms of its principal… CONTINUE READING
