The statistics display (brought up using the 'T' key in the pfCAVE
simulator) shows the current frame rate and the timing of each
stage in the Performer pipeline.
To get more detailed statistics, call
in your initialization, after pfCAVEInitChannels().
Tools for improving the performance of an application include:
- pfLOD - Level of detail. Contains different versions of
a model, and selects which child to render based on the
distance from the viewpoint and/or the current 'stress'.
- pfNode::flatten - A method which applies SCS transformations
to all the geometry under the SCS's, so that a push/popmatrix
is not needed when rendering.
- pfPartition - A group node which can break up geometry into
separate blocks in an X/Y grid, improving culling.
- pfdSpatialize - Utility functions which break up a scene
into a more efficient graph.
