1. 5 Sample Implementation In this section, we will discuss the design of a set of classes that implement the functionality of a scene graph with transformation matrices attached to its nodes. Internal nodes that can store a list of children, and also a transformation matrix, are represented by the class GroupNode. All transformation matrices are assumed to have the general form given by T(v)R(Â). The properties of leaf nodes are specified by three classes: ObjectNode that can represent a three-dimensional object, CameraNode that represents the camera, and LightNode that represents a light source.

11 Computation of the model transformation matrix of an object represented by a leaf node in a scene graph LCA X S1 M Y T1 Object-2 Object-1 Tn Sm Fig. Tn the transformations towards Object-2 as shown in Fig. 12. Sm . Note that this matrix product does not involve the transformation M of the LCA or any of its ancestors. There are several well-known algorithms to compute the Lowest Common Ancestor of two nodes in a tree. A simple method uses two lists of nodes visited in sequential upward traversals of the tree from the two nodes towards the root.

Use left mouse clicks on the upper left side of the screen to define the first polygonal shape. Similarly, use right mouse clicks on the upper right side of the screen to draw the second polygon. Pressing the space bar creates the shape-tween between the first and the second polygons in the bottom half of the window. 5. cpp The program uses Eq. 45 to obtain a bilinear interpolation of color values at the vertices to fill the interior of a triangle. For comparison, a second similar triangle is rendered using the OpenGL pipeline that uses the Gouraud shading algorithm.
