  • State of the Art in Perceptually Driven Radiosity 

    Prikryl, J.; Purgathofer, W. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Despite its popularity among researchers the radiosity method still suffers of some disadvantages over other global illumination methods. Besides the fact that the original method allows only for solving the global ...
  • A Standard for Multimedia Middleware 

    Duke, D.J.; Herman, I. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Hardware, software, and coding standards for digital media have played a significant role in making multimedia presentation an intrinsic compponent of many systems. However, these standards are primarily concerned with the ...
  • Multidimensional free-form deformation tools 

    Bechmann, D. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    A survey of free-form deformation tools where the deformation is controlled by manipulating a 0-D to 3-D tool. Characteristics of a model that includes all these and generalises the concept will be presented.
  • Distributed Cooperative Visualization 

    Brodlie, K.W.; Duce, D.A.; Gallop, J.R.; Wood, J.D. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Visualization is essentially a collaborative activity, widely used in many scientific and engineering disciplines. Visualization may be used to convey insight into phenomena that are well-understood, or to present new data ...
  • Overview of Parallel Photo-realistic Graphics 

    Reinhard, E.; Chalmers, A.G.; Jansen, F.W. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    Global illumination is an area of research which tries to develop algorithms and methods to render images of artificial models or worlds as realistically as possible. Such algorithms are known for their unpredictable data ...
  • Interpolation and Approximation of Surfaces from Three-Dimensional Scattered Data Points 

    Mencl, R.; Möller, H. (Eurographics Association, 1998)
    There is a wide range of applications for which surface interpolation or approximation from scattered data points in space is important. Dependent on the field of application and the related properties of the data, many ...
