Image element depth buffering using two buffers

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #5471567.

Depth buffered anti-aliasing in a real time image generation system utilizing two separate buffers, one for combining attributes of object pixel definitions which are of less than full coverage and another for storing the attributes of each new object pixel definition which is of full coverage and which is closer to the viewpoint than any attributes currently stored. If the depth value in the partial buffer is closer the viewpoint than that in the full buffer, a set of attributes is output which is a weighted mixture of those stored in the two buffers.
