title Ray tracing complex scenes
source Computer Graphics, 20 4, 269-78
summary A new algorithm for speeding up ray-object intersection calculations is presented. Objects are bounded by a new type of extent, which can be made to fit convex hulls arbitrarily tightly. The objects are placed into a hierarchy. A new hierarchy traversal algorithm is presented which is efficient in the sense that objects along the ray are queried in ancient order. Furthermore , we demonstrate that it is currently possible to raytrace scenes containing hundreds of thousands of objects.
