Abstract
We demonstrate an interactive parallel rendering system based on the impostors technique. Impostors increase the latency tolerance of an interactive rendering system, which allows us to use the power of a parallel machine even at high resolutions and framerates. Impostors also decrease the required rendering bandwidth, which makes possible the interactive use of a variety of advanced rendering techniques. These techniques are demonstrated by the interactive high-quality rendering of very large detailed models on large distributed-memory parallel machines.
