Title : Efficient Sort-Last Rendering Using Compression-Based Image Compositing

  title={Title : Efficient Sort-Last Rendering Using Compression-Based Image Compositing},
  author={James Ahrens and James Painter},
State of the art scientific simulations are currently working with data set sizes on the order of a billion cells. Parallel rendering is a promising approach for interactively visualizing multiple isosurface variables from data sets of this magnitude. In sort-last rendering, each processor creates a depth buffered image of its assigned objects. All processors’ images are composited together to create a final result. Improving the efficiency of this compositing step is key to interactive… CONTINUE READING
