Many popular frustum culling algorithms, including our own implementation, do not produce completely accurate results when large objects are present in the scene. At any time only a fraction of the meshes in the scene may actually be visible. Im guessing in my method that draws all my cubes but i could be wrong. The viewing frustum is a geometric representation of the volume visible to the virtual camera. A frustum is often used to represent what a camera sees in your 3d spacefor example.

Yet another slight departure from my planned series. Free, commercially distributable, modifiable, open source code. Its more likely that they handle this internally engine side, where some culling code will know to omit the frustum culled renderer from a. A cone or pyramid whose tip has been truncated by a plane parallel to its base.
This is implemented to allow background tasks to execute code which is thread sensitive like changing the graphicsdevice fixed not correctly set farplane value in the cullinginfo structure, this caused that the cameras frustum was always smaler than internalfarplane thus the distance culling never culld any geometry cause everything was. Obviously every renderer needs some sort of culling. It implements a procedural generated scene with a height map loader where user can move the real camera and the virtual camera.

The advantage of culling early on in the pipeline is that entire objects that are invisible do not have to be fetched, transformed, rasterized or shaded. And yes thousands not hundreds, even with a low end system culling a few hundred nodes isnt going to effect performance. Frustum culling determines, if a 3d model is within a view frustum if it is visible or not. It is worth noting that this method of culling is not an allencompassing. A frustum is often used to represent what a camera sees in your 3d space.
