GPU-Accelerated Ray Casting of Node-Based Implicits




Abstract: Implicit surfaces are a popular surface representation for the modeling and animation of organic shapes and natural phe- nomena. We present a novel GPU ray casting engine for the direct and efficient visualization of node or skeleton-based distance surfaces.
