The Design of the Doré Graphics System

  • Michael R. Kaplan
Conference paper
Part of the EurographicSeminars book series (FOCUS COMPUTER)


Doré is an application interface for three-dimensional graphics designed to provide a highly abstract core environment for applications involving both interactive display and high quality image generation. Capable of spanning multiple platforms, technologies, and interface models, its goal is to provide an extensible framework for three-dimensional graphics that can grow with rapid advances in both dynamic and photorealistic image generation.
