In this paper, we present an efficient voxelization algorithm for complex polygonal models by exploiting newest programmable graphics hardware. We first convert the model into three discrete voxel spaces according to its surface orientation. The resultant voxels are encoded as 2D textures and stored in three intermediate sheet buffers called directional sheet buffers. These buffers […]

This paper deals with a method for interactive rendering of photorealistic images, which is a fundamental technology in the field of virtual reality. Since the latest graphics processing units (GPUs) are programmable, they are expected to be useful for various applications including numerical computation and image processing. This paper proposes a method for focus measurement […]

Deformable isosurfaces, implemented with level-set methods, have demonstrated a great potential in visualization and computer graphics for applications such as segmentation, surface processing, and physically-based modeling. Their usefulness has been limited, however, by their high computational cost and reliance on significant parameter tuning. We present a solution to these challenges by describing graphics processor (GPU) […]

In this paper we present an interactive collision detection algorithm for complex and deformable objects. For two target models, our approach rapidly calculates their region of interests (ROI), which is the overlapping of their axis aligned bounding boxes (AABBs), in CPU. The surfaces of both models inside the ROI are then voxelized using a novel […]

We present an interactive visualization approach for the dense representation of unsteady 3D flow fields. The first part of this approach is a GPU-based 3D texture advection scheme that allows a slice of the 3D visual representation to be updated in a single rendering pass. In the second step, the result of the advection process […]

We present a system for real-time animation and rendering of large particle sets using GPU computation and memory objects in OpenGL. Memory objects can be used both as containers for geometry data stored on the graphics card and as render targets, providing an effective means for the manipulation and rendering of particle data on the […]

We present a hardware-accelerated adaptive EWA (elliptical weighted average) volume splatting algorithm. EWA splatting combines a Gaussian reconstruction kernel with a low-pass image filter for high image quality without aliasing artifacts or excessive blurring. We introduce a novel adaptive filtering scheme to reduce the computational cost of EWA splatting. We show how this algorithm can […]

3D texture-based volume rendering is a popular way of realizing direct volume visualization on graphics hardware. However, the slice-oriented texture memory layout of many current CPUs may lead to a strongly view-dependent performance, which reduces the fields of application of volume rendering. In this short technical note, we propose a slight modification of texture-based volume […]
