Abstract

As the representation of the vegetation, trees will be an indispensable part of natural scenes. Many studies have focused on the topic about how to simulate realistic trees efficiently. The goal of this paper is therefore to present an overview of methods applied to modeling and rendering of trees in complex natural scenes. These different types of representations and typical methods used in them are classified and analysized. Finally, we will conclude the paper with possible ideas and key points about modeling and rendering of trees for further research.
