Abstract

We present fast complete rebuild strategies, as well as adapted intelligent local update strategies for acceleration data structures for interactive ray tracing environments. Both approaches can be combined. Although the proposed strategies could be used with other data structures and architectures as well, they are currently tailored to the Bounding Interval Hierarchy on the Cell chip.
