Stephen J Baker, Dennis A Cowdrey, Graham J Olive, Karl J Wood: Image generator for generating perspective views from data defining a model having opaque and translucent features. Rediffusion Simulation, Nixon & Vanderhye, November 8, 1994: US05363475 (135 worldwide citation)

An apparatus for generating an image from data defining a model including a plurality of opaque and translucent features. The image is intended to represent a view of the model from a predetermined eyepoint and is made up from an array of screen space pixels. The image area is divided into an array ...

Graham J Olive: Method and apparatus for generating images simulating non-homogeneous fog effects. Rediffusion Simulation, Nixon & Vanderhye, May 2, 1995: US05412796 (39 worldwide citation)

A method and apparatus for simulating the effect of non-homogeneous fog in an image displayed on a screen. The image is intended to represent the appearance of a model defined in a database in world space coordinates from an eyepoint position in world space, the model being defined in terms of indiv ...

Graham J Olive: Method and apparatus for generating an elliptical image. Rediffusion Simulation, Nixon & Vanderhye, August 16, 1994: US05338200 (21 worldwide citation)

Elliptical features are described in an image generator database in terms of an origin and major and minor axes defined by reference to a world or model space coordinate system. Image data is assembled for display by transforming the database contents into screen space and assessing for each of an a ...

Timothy J Hicks, Graham J Olive, Paul H Berridge: Atmospheric effects simulation. Thomson Training & Simulation, Nixon & Vanderhye P C, August 8, 2000: US06100892 (2 worldwide citation)

The motion of particles such as snow is simulated in a computer generated image which represents the appearance from a predetermined viewing point of a three-dimensional worldspace through which the particles move. A three-dimensional model is defined which is made up from a regular array of abuttin ...
