Abstract

We present an approach for direct rendering of natural phenomena such as trees, plants or mountains from a procedural representation at interactive frame rates. Our approach is based on directed cyclic graphs. It allows to represent extremely complex scenes with little memory and modeling effort. Very large scale virtual environments are supported by a bandwidth-preserving networking approach that makes use of the compact representation and on-the-fly database amplification.
