  Viewing frustum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 3D computer graphics, the viewing frustum or view frustum is the region of space in the modeled world that may appear on the screen; it is the field of view of the notional camera.
Viewing frustum culling or view frustum culling is the process of removing objects that lie completely outside the viewing frustum from the rendering process.
In ray tracing, viewing frustum culling cannot be peformed because objects outside the viewing frustum may be visible when reflected off an object inside the frustum.

 Dr HS Fortuna Playstation 2 Linux Games Programming
To compute the view of a 3D model, the 3D world coordinates of the vertices in the model must be converted to 2D screen coordinates, which determine which screen pixel represent each vertex.
The viewing angle or field of view (FOV) is defined as the angle alpha, which is an angle defined in the direction of the y axis.
The aspect ratio of the view frustum is defined as A = w/h.

 Frustum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A frustum is the portion of a solid  â€“ normally a cone or pyramid  â€“ which lies between two parallel planes cutting the solid.
An example of a pyramidal frustum may be seen on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States, as on the back of the U.S. one-dollar bill.
In 3D computer graphics, this is called the viewing frustum.

The viewing frustum is a rectangular cone in three-space that has the from-point as its tip, and that encloses the projection rectangle, which is perpendicular to the cone axis.
It is generally easier to let the viewing angle specify the angle for one dimension of the projection rectangle, and then to tailor the angle of the perpendicular angle of the viewing frustum to match the other dimension of the projection rectangle.
The angle from D to From to B is the horizontal viewing angle, and the angle from A to From to C is the vertical viewing angle.

 Rick Towler's IDL: RHTgrCamera View Frustum Culling
View frustum culling was used to limit the number of individuals drawn to only those that were in the viewing frustum.
View frustum culling (VFC) is a form of visibility culling based on the premise that only objects in the current view volume must be drawn.
If a node is found to be completely in or out of the viewing frustum the visibility of all the models in the node are set and traversal stops.

Polygons that lie completely outside the canonical view volume do not need further treatment and will be invisible to the viewer — they will be rejected from the remainder of the drawing pipline.
The centre of projection is at the origin and the viewing window is located at z = -1 as illustrated in figure 5.
Following the view to screen transformation, clipping against the canonical frustum is illustrated.

 Computation of Near Macro-Cells
However, there are cases of macro-cells intersecting the viewing frustum as well as back space (see figure 3.7).
The macro-cell is clipped, which means, the intersection of the viewing frustum with the macro-cell is calculated, and the projection silhouette is derived from it.
If the opening angle of the viewing frustum does not exceed a certain bound (which is the usual case), only macro-cells, which are immediate neighbors (26-neighborhood) of the macro-cell enclosing the eye point can intersect back space as well as the viewing frustum.

 The View Volume Editor
One of the most important operation that the GM has to perform is the modification of the view volume frustum with respect to the viewing system adopted by the ROV camera.
The viewing system type is given by the height angle and the aspect ratio, that is the result of the width angle divided by the height angle.
The viewing frustum is shown as a transparent shape with the starting point coincident with the currently selected viewpoint in order to represent the correct position and orientation of the view volume clipping planes.

Frustum culling is simply the process of determining whether or not objects are visible in this area.
What we want with the sphere is to have it situated in the middle of the frustum with a radius that extends from the center of the sphere to a far corner of the frustum.
If we choose the cone angle to be the same as the field of view of the frustum, then we create a cone that cuts off the corners of the frustum.

The viewing and modeling transformations you specify are combined to form the modelview matrix, which is applied to the incoming object coordinates to yield eye coordinates.
The viewing volume determines how an object is projected onto the screen (that is, by using a perspective or an orthographic projection), and it defines which objects or portions of objects are clipped out of the final image.
Objects that fall within the viewing volume are projected toward the apex of the pyramid, where the camera or viewpoint is. Objects that are closer to the viewpoint appear larger because they occupy a proportionally larger amount of the viewing volume than those that are farther away, in the larger part of the frustum.

 Chapter 4. Viewing
Recall that the viewing volume is used to clip objects that lie outside of it; the four sides of the frustum, its top, and its base correspond to the six clipping planes of the viewing volume, as shown in Figure 3-13.
The frustum's viewing volume is defined by the parameters: ( left, bottom, -near) and ( right, top, -near) specify the ( x, y, z) coordinates of the lower-left and upper-right corners of the near clipping plane; near and far give the distances from the viewpoint to the near and far clipping planes.
You can use trigonometry to calculate the desired field of view given the size of the object and its distance from the viewpoint: The tangent of half the desired angle is half the size of the object divided by the distance to the object (see Figure 3-19).

 Gamasutra - Features - "Fast Occlusion Culling for Outdoor Environments" [07.17.02]
The viewing frustum is typically a cut pyramid (if a pro-jection transformation is used) or a cube (if an orthogonal transformation is used).
Transparent or translu-cent objects are not good view occluders, because as light rays pass through the material, so we’ll ignore transparent objects as occluders in 3D rendering.
Looking closer, we can see that the frustum is made of all of the occluder’s polygons facing the viewer, and from new planes made of edges and the viewer’s position.

An interesting method to enable stereo viewing on LCD panels is to place a lens system in front of them, that refracts the light from each pixel column into the direction of the two eyes.
Another approach is to draw the different views in two different colors (usually red and blue or red and green)into one image.
This technique is similar to the separation by color, but avoids its main disadvantage: instead of using different colors for the views in the image one uses polarization.

 stereo geometry in OpenGL
Asymmetric frustum parallel projection (equivalent to lens-shift in photography) corrects for this keystone distortion and puts the rendering plane and viewing plane in the same orientation.
It is essential that when using the asymmetric frustum technique that the rendering geometry closely matches the geometry of the viewing system.
From the geometry it is evident that the ratio of frustum shift to the near clipping plane is equal to the ratio of IOD/2 to the distance from the screenplane.
