Example text

Origin Mipmapping was invented by Lance Williams in 1983 and is described in his paper Pyramidal parametrics. " The "pyramid" can be imagined as the set of mipmaps stacked on top of each other. How it works An example of mipmap image storage: the principal image on the left is accompanied by filtered copies of reduced size. Each bitmap image of the mipmap set is a version of the main texture, but at a certain reduced level of detail. Although the main texture would still be used when the view is sufficient to render it in full detail, the renderer will switch to a suitable mipmap image (or in fact, interpolate between the two nearest, if trilinear filtering is activated) when the texture is viewed from a distance or at a small size.

A regular 3D mesh object, such as a cube or a plane, can be used as an emitter. The emitter has attached to it a set of particle behavior parameters. These parameters can include the spawning rate (how many particles are generated per unit of time), the particles' initial velocity vector (the direction they are emitted upon creation), particle lifetime (the length of time each individual particle exists before disappearing), particle color, and many more. e. the average particle's lifetime might be 50 frames ±20%).

A cube emitting 5000 animated particles, obeying a "gravitational" force in the negative Y direction. The same cube emitter rendered using static particles, or strands. Artist-friendly particle system tools Particle systems can be created and modified natively in many 3D modeling and rendering packages including Lightwave, Houdini, Maya, XSI, 3D Studio Max and Blender. These editing programs allow artists to have instant feedback on how a particle system will look with properties and constraints that they specify.
