Chapter 3 Scene Graphs Overview A scene graph is a data structure commonly used to represent hierarchical relationships between transformations applied to a set of objects in a three-dimensional scene. It finds applications in a variety of acceleration and rendering algorithms. A scene graph could also be used to organize visual attributes, bounding volumes, and animations as a hierarchy in a collection of objects.
Scene graphs where transformations at internal nodes have one of the forms I, T(v), R(Â), or T(v)R(Â) are said to be in the standard form. The example given in Fig. 9 is an exception to this rule. However, this scene graph can be easily converted to the standard form with the addition of a group node as shown in Fig. 10. The equivalence of the scene graphs in Figs. 10 can be verified by obtaining the combined final transformation matrices applied to the leaf nodes. In a scene graph, transformations are combined using a recursive procedure starting at the root node, accumulating transformations at internal nodes and ending at object nodes.
An object may also be given a material colour using the function setColor(). A scene is rendered by calling the function render() of the GroupNode class on an instance that represents the scene graph’s root. This function in turn calls the polymorphic function draw()which is declared as virtual in GroupNode. The implementation of the function in ObjectNode will call the necessary OpenGL functions to apply the transformations and to draw the object. 3 Camera Node Any three-dimensional scene is assumed to have an active camera that contains information about the projective transformation used while rendering the scene.
