Nützliche Links finden sich in folgender Tabelle:

OpenGL Programming
  • Paul Heckbert's page, with interesting material about texture mapping, especially perspective correct texture mapping.
Shading and Lighting Effects
Programmable Shading
  • A page on Stanford's shading language. Although current commercial shading languages (Cg, OpenGL 2.0) modified the concept a little bit, it is still the best exposition on the basic concepts involved.
Levels of Detail (LoD)
  • Michael Garland's Homepage, where you can download the source code to his quadric error metrics simplification papers (qslim).
  • A LOD Demo featuring a Galactica starfighter.
  • Another demo, for the method in this paper.
Commonly Used 3D Models
  • FRAPS, a generic framerate display tool.
  • GLTrace, a powerfull call logging and tracing tool. Note: if tracing (displaying every command) doesn't work, contact me for an older version...
  • Gltrace & GlSim, another call logging tool which is not as easy to set up but can also be used to replay the command stream.
  • Intel VTune, a powerful external profiler for Intel processors. A 30-day evaluation download is available.
  • AMD Performance Tools, various tools for CPU and GPU instrumentation
  • NVIDIA Developer Tools
  • Data complexity for Virtual Reality - Where do all the triangles go? A paper, by Michael Deering analyzing the distribution of triangles in a number of CAD models.
  • Dynamic 3D Graphics Workload Characterization and the Architectural Implications, a paper about performance characterization, also showing the balance point of the "average triangle".
  • Using the RDTSC Instruction for Performance Monitoring, an Intel article about the topic.
