First Combined Version of Polygonal Rendering and Volume Rendering

13.11.2015 Showcase Technical

Due to recent work by contributors from Toshiba Corporation, X3DOM now has a mode that supports joinedĀ visualization of volumetric and polygonal data.


With the RadarVolumeStyle node, this exciting combination is already possible, correctly combining depth values from polygonal rendering with the current depth during volume raycasting. In the future, this feature will likely become available in all volume style nodes (see discussion).

Thanks a lot to our contributors from Japan šŸ™‚

Check out the demo here!


Edit: In the first version of this demo (and this post), theĀ image for theĀ transfer function was not linked correctly (causing black smoke instead of a colored volume). This is now fixed.
