Chapter 3 Scene Graphs Overview A scene graph is a data structure commonly used to represent hierarchical relationships between transformations applied to a set of objects in a three-dimensional scene.
Thus barycentric coordinates find applications in point inclusion tests. In a general three-dimensional case, however, the area of a triangle computed using Eq. 3 would always be positive, and correspondingly the area ratios in Eq. 48 would also be positive. As previously discussed in Sect. 2, the computation of signed areas of triangles requires a view vector w. Since we need this vector to be fixed with respect to every triangle in Eq. 48, we can conveniently choose w D (P2 P1 ) (P3 P1 ). Now the barycentric coordinates 1 , 2 and 3 in Eq.
The barycentric coordinates of a point Q with respect to P1 , P2 , P3 have a geometrical interpretation as the ratios of the areas of triangles QP2 P3 , QP3 P1 , QP1 P2 to the area of the triangle P1 P2 P3 . 48) The barycentric coordinates given in Eq. 48 are unique for every point on the plane of the triangle. They can be directly used to get the interpolated value of any quantity defined at the vertices of the triangle. 8 Barycentric Coordinates 23 R= l1S1+l2S2+l3S3 P3 Q = (l1, l2, l3) S3 R S2 P1 P2 S1 Fig.
