A system is disclosed for clipping three-dimensional polygons for use in a computer-graphics display. The system removes from each polygon all parts that lie outside an arbitrary, plane-faced, convex polyhedron, e.g. a truncated pyramid defining a viewing volume. The polygon is defined by data representing a group of vertices and is clipped separately in its entirety against each clipping plane (of the polyhedron). In a multiple-stage structure as disclosed, each stage clips the polygon against a single plane and requires storage for only two vertex values. A time-sharing embodiment of the system is also disclosed. The disclosed system also incorporates the use of a perspective transformation matrix which provides for arbitrary field-of-view angles and depth-of-field distances while utilizing simple, fixed clipping planes.
