virtual void CreateImposter (csReversibleTransform &pov)=0
 Tells the object to create its proctex and polygon for use by main render process later.
virtual void SetImposterActive (bool flag)=0
 Self explanatory.
virtual void SetMinDistance (iSharedVariable *dist)=0
 Minimum Imposter Distance is the distance from camera beyond which imposter is used.
virtual void SetRotationTolerance (iSharedVariable *angle)=0
 Rotation Tolerance is the maximum allowable angle difference between when the imposter was created and the current position of the camera.
virtual bool WouldUseImposter (csReversibleTransform &pov) const =0
 Determine if imposter or true rendering will be used.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void iImposter::CreateImposter ( csReversibleTransform pov  )  [pure virtual]

Tells the object to create its proctex and polygon for use by main render process later.

virtual void iImposter::SetImposterActive ( bool  flag  )  [pure virtual]

Self explanatory.

virtual void iImposter::SetMinDistance ( iSharedVariable dist  )  [pure virtual]

Minimum Imposter Distance is the distance from camera beyond which imposter is used.

Imposter gets a ptr here because value is a shared variable which can be changed at runtime for many objects.

virtual void iImposter::SetRotationTolerance ( iSharedVariable angle  )  [pure virtual]

Rotation Tolerance is the maximum allowable angle difference between when the imposter was created and the current position of the camera.

Angle greater than this triggers a re-render of the imposter.

virtual bool iImposter::WouldUseImposter ( csReversibleTransform pov  )  const [pure virtual]

Determine if imposter or true rendering will be used.

private: virtual void Draw(iRenderView* rview) = 0;
