Meeting the growing demands for speed and quality in rendering computer graphics images requires new techniques. Practical parallel rendering provides one of the most practical solutions. This book addresses the basic issues of rendering within a parallel or distributed computing environment, and considers the strengths and weaknesses of multiprocessor machines and networked render farms for graphics rendering. Case studies of working applications demonstrate, in detail, practical ways of dealing with complex issues involved in parallel processing.

Book News
In the first section of the volume, the authors (an international group of university- and industry-based computer scientists) introduce generic parallel processing issues followed by coverage of high-end graphics algorithms, the implications of these algorithms for parallel processing, recent hardware developments, and analysis of coherence for single images and sequences. Case studies which detail practical ways of addressing complex issues are presented in the second half of the volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
