1: I can’t understand at which point down the Chunked LOD pipeline that the mesh gets split into chunks. Is this during the initial mesh. Hello, I’m here to ask for help. I have program for terrain editing, but I went into one problem I can’t solve. Between each chunk is crack, how to. Hi I am trying to implement chunked lod for a while now and I am not successful so far. I read the paper about chunked lod and understood the.

In my opinion, its usefulness is unproven. Optimization Trick As I created a texture for each grid to fetch the height data in the GPU, I could have optimized the technique further by creating a single texture atlas and use geometry instancing to batch all the grids into a single draw call and apply texture coordinate offset.

LOD chunked rendering

I think you might be missing part of the picture, it appears the deviation is a result of a preprocessing step. Also I want to note: Let me be clear: It is quite simple to add skirts. If vertice is bigger than 40 then recalculate it somehow? My opinion on terrain algorithms, condensed to be as simple as possible Small organic patches: BT repository at http: Chunkde can use the search functionality to find what I have written keyword VTF I must admit however that it had quite some sarcasm in it, in retrospect, that was an error by my side.

Edited July 21, by ekba The technique is relatively fast and minimizes vertex buffer manipulations, most of the hard work is done on the GPU and during texture preparation. Sign up using Email and Password. The algorithm takes more preprocessing time than anything else I know about as well as more runtime resources. Are you using quadtree or calculate screen-error metric to choose a proper chunk? Level of detail for terrain is not easy. Results 1 to 10 of Oh, sorry about I didn’t mentioned tess.

LOD chunked rendering – Cristi Mihai

Last time I moved those objections I experienced consistent fanboyism mainly by a single user, who clearly didn’t read my messages, let alone explain anything. What is your GameDev Story? Caius Eugene 4 It really depends on the design of your engine. If there are 4×4 tiles of 65×65 vertices, adding skirts results lood 67×67 vertices, where vertex 1,1 corresponds to vertex 0,0 of the original tile. By contrast, most continuous LOD schemes are outdated in my opinion.

Posted July 22, A final technique which I experimented with is my own idea inspired by GPU Cgunked Maps, using an Icosahedron with higher tessellation toward a center point which is kept oriented towards the camera. You have chunkev divided your map into tiles.

Additional advantage is the use of a geometric error estimate function which serves as a more accurate test for when to change the LOD level compared to pure distance functions. For my needs it means I had to create the height data on a different thread as the camera gets closer to the planet, save it to the hard drive or SD card in case of mobile devices and load it on demand.


You said most continuous LODs are outdated but this seemed good after running the code and seeing the results. Thanks for the reply and sorry I forgot to mention it. Well, after reconsidering the problem, it seems it is easier to add a ring around chunk separately, although I’m implementing skirts as a part of blocks but have totally different approach compared to yours, and using no TS.

Last edited by glararan; cgunked LaTeX is nightmarish, but the equations and pdf output are better, and I can edit in emacs. There are two methods to do that. And there is my bug result: Geometry clipmaps don’t care about the deviation, they exploit Nyquist Theorem so nobody really cares. One is by creating a vertex buffer per chunkrd and manipulating the positions on creation. Most people just assumes terrain data will fit.
