Summary
  • When computer graphics are used to model 4D images that are projected into 3D space, solids appears as a 2D surfaces or polygons. Assigning color and shading to the polygons and removing hidden volumes will improve the perception of the 4D relationships, and an algorithm for removing hidden volumes or solids is described. The process involves: assigning a color to each surface matching the solid to which it belongs; shading, using a single light source with light modeled as reflecting from a solid; perspective transformation; clipping of scenes as far as the screen boundary; and sorting and ordering of solids to determine if one obscures another, resulting in removal of the hidden solids.
