Fast compositing for cluster-parallel rendering


Makhinya, M; Eilemann, S; Pajarola, R (2010). Fast compositing for cluster-parallel rendering. In: Eurographics Symposium on Parallel Graphics and Visualization, Norrköping, Sweden, 2 May 2010 - 3 May 2010, 111-120.

Abstract

The image compositing stages in cluster-parallel rendering for gathering and combining partial rendering results into a final display frame are fundamentally limited by node-to-node image throughput. Therefore, efficient image coding, compression and transmission must be considered to minimize that bottleneck. This paper studies the different performance limiting factors such as image representation, region-of-interest detection and fast image compression. Additionally, we show improved compositing performance using lossy YUV subsampling and we propose a novel fast region-of-interest detection algorithm that can improve in particular sort-last parallel rendering.
