Abstract

Depth cueing makes a three-dimensional graphics picture appear to be more realistic by dimming those parts further from the viewer and is normally accomplished by hardware. Here, software static coding in all three spatial dimensions using color or some other multidimensional visual code indicates depth. As all three dimensions are included, the visual effect persists when the picture is rotated.
