CAD11 — Tessellation Types

  • Key: CAD11-22
  • Legacy Issue Number: 5750
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: NASA ( Russ Claus)
  • Summary:

    For example, consider the requirements for calling Body::tessellate():
    ConnectedFaceTessellationStruct
    tessellate(in TessType t_type,
    inout TessParametersStruct params,
    out boolean flag);

    The first argument (the tessellation type) can be one of two enumerated values, WIREFRAME or VISUALIZATION. Nowhere in the specification is any hint given as to the difference between these two settings. One might guess that the VISUALIZATION tessellation type produces a larger number of triangles, but to what degree? Is it implementation-dependent?
