Abstract
This paper presents a method for quickly constructing a high-
quality approximate visibility function for high frequency semi-
transparent geometry such as hair. We can then reconstruct the vis-
ibility for any fragment without the expensive compression needed
by Deep Shadow Maps and with a quality that is much better than
what is attainable at similar framerates using Opacity Maps or Deep
Opacity Maps. The memory footprint of our method is also consid-
erably lower than that of previous methods. We then use a similar
method to achieve back-to-front sorted alpha blending of the frag-
ments with results that are virtually indistinguishable from depth-
peeling and an order of magnitude faster.
