Abstract:

Graphics systems use many advanced techniques that enable to model and visualize a virtual scene with varying level of realism. Unfortunately, the huge collection of existing rendering algorithms significantly differ in the way how a virtual scene is processed. Concrete implementations therefore usually lead to monolithic solutions. In this paper we present a component-based virtual scene with unified interface exploitable by many rendering strategies. Moreover, proposed approach does not dictate internal implementation of the scene. One implementation can be therefore reused by many rendering algorithms and, vice versa, the scene can be easily replaced by another implementation, even at runtime.
