abstract

The increasing popularity of points as rendering primitives has led to a variety of different rendering algorithms, and in particular the different implementations cannot always be compared easily. In this talk I will revisit a number of recently developed point-based rendering implementations, and briefly summarize a few proposed hierarchical multiresolution point data structures and their advantages. Based on a common multiresolution framework different hardware accelerated point rendering algorithms are examined and compared. Experimental results are given with respect to performance timing and rendering quality for the different approaches.
