[osg-users] ANN: Occlusion query and CAD model support

I demoed a beta of the occlusion query work at the SIGGRAPH OSG BOF, so it
does (in fact) exist and is not vaporware :-). Funding for the project was
temporarily on hold but should be back online this fall. At that point, I
hope to make the final changes required to get the work included into the
core OSG distribution.
The support for CAD models is PolyTrans- (and therefore Windows-) specific.
I won't be contributing this to the core OSG distribution. However, I intend
to work with Okino Computer Graphics to ensure that the code is freely
distributed with their PolyTrans SDK. The details of this haven't been
worked out yet.

Is there any news on the occlusion query nodekit or CAD model import front?

Hi folks -- I wanted to formally announce that I'm working with the Virtual
Engineering Research Group at Iowa State University to add some features to
OSG. Details are available in the following press release:


You may have seen posts from me regarding the occlusion query work. This has
been in development for some time. It's in the form of a NodeKit called
"osgOQ" and is very close to beta. I'll post a tar/zip to the community page
and announce it here after a few more changes. The osgOQ work will be open
source and licensed under the OSGPL. My intent is to submit it for inclusion
in core OSG.


The PolyTrans work for importing CAD files through PolyTrans will be MS
Windows-only (sorry, this is not my restriction). Distribution terms are
being worked out. Again, I'll post here when I know more.
