The Painter’s Algorithm: Its Differences

0 commentspaintingPainter

The painter’s method is a 3D computer graphic algorithm that determines if a surface is visible. Other hidden surface removal algorithms work row-by–row, area-by–area, or pixel­by­pixel. The key differences between these two methods are the difficulty and extent of pixel overlap. The following article will briefly outline the algorithm used by painter and the differences.

The algorithm of the painter was created in a time when physical memory was scarce and the goal was for as little as possible to …
