  • Patent number: 10657699
    Abstract: When a texture mapper in a graphics processor is to perform a texturing operation for a set of plural execution threads together, the texture mapper determines whether the texturing operation for the set of plural threads can be performed together with the texturing operation for another set of plural execution threads for which a texturing operation is required. When the texture mapper determines that the texturing operations for the sets of plural execution threads can be performed together, it performs the texturing operations for the sets of plural threads together, but when it determines that the texturing operation for the set of plural threads cannot be performed together with the texturing operation for another set of plural execution threads, it performs the texturing operation for the set of plural execution threads alone.

  • Patent number: 10510182
    Abstract: A graphics processing system includes a tiling unit for performing tiling calculations and a hidden surface removal (HSR) unit for performing HSR on fragments of the primitives. Primitive depth information is calculated in the tiling unit and forwarded for use by the HSR unit in performing HSR on the fragments. This takes advantage of the tiling unit having access to the primitive data before the HSR unit performs the HSR on the primitive fragments, to determine some depth information which can simplify the HSR performed by the HSR unit. Therefore, the final values of a depth buffer determined in the tiling unit can be used in the HSR unit to determine that a particular fragment will be subsequently hidden by a fragment of a primitive which is yet to be processed in the HSR unit, such that the particular fragment can be culled.

  • Patent number: 10432914
    Abstract: A graphics processing system includes a graphics processing pipeline, which includes a primitive generation stage and a pixel processing stage. The graphics processing system is arranged to process input data in the primitive generation stage to produce first primitive data associated with a first view of a scene and second primitive data associated with a second view of the scene. The graphics processing system is arranged to process the first primitive data in the pixel processing stage to produce first pixel-processed data associated with the first view. The graphics processing system is arranged to determine, for second pixel-processed data associated with the second view, whether to use the first pixel-processed data as the second pixel-processed data or whether to process the second primitive data in the pixel processing stage to produce the second pixel-processed data, and perform additional processing in the graphics processing pipeline based on the determining.

  • Patent number: 10403028
    Abstract: A system and method for geometric warping correction in projection mapping is provided. A lower resolution mesh is applied to A mesh model, at least in a region of the mesh model misaligned with a corresponding region of a real-world object. One or more points of the lower resolution mesh are moved. In response, one or more corresponding points of the mesh model are moved to increase alignment between the region of the mesh model and the corresponding region of the real-world object. An updated mesh model is stored in a memory. And one or more projectors are controlled to projection map images corresponding to the updated mesh model onto the real-world object.

  • Patent number: 10382737
    Abstract: An image processing method includes obtaining multiple video frames, where the multiple video frames are collected from a same scene at different angles and determining a depth map of each video frame according to corresponding pixels among the multiple video frames; supplementing background missing regions of the multiple video frames according to depth maps of the multiple video frames, to obtain supplemented video frames of the multiple video frames and depth maps of the multiple supplemented video frames. The method also includes generating an alpha image of each video frame according to an occlusion relationship between each of the multiple video frames and a supplemented video frame of each video frame in a background missing region and generating a browsing frame at a specified browsing angle according to the multiple video frames, the supplemented video frames of the multiple video frames, and alpha images of the multiple video frames.
