Scene Graphs
Question submitted by (20 February 2000)

Return to The Archives
  I'm wondering about scene graphs and how BSPs and portals are fitted into the graph. Can it be included in the graph or must it be a different module when one its in use? I guess what i'm trying to say is, can a scene graph be used to support for ex. portals and various techniques?  

  Sure, scene graphs are primarily used to store objects and their inter-relations with each other. How each object is stored is only limited by the implementation of the scene graph management code.
