Application: Method and computer device for 3d scene generation (Patent ID: US20240070959A1)

The patent filed by Acer Inc. describes a computer device for three-dimensional (3D) scene generation that includes a graphics processing unit (GPU) and a processing unit. The processing unit runs a program to intercept function calls from an application program to the graphics driver, create corresponding function calls based on interpupillary distance, and transmit them to the graphics driver. The GPU then renders two images based on these function calls, allowing for the generation of a stereo image for autostereoscopic display or wearable devices with dual display panels.

Additionally, the patent outlines a method for 3D scene generation executed by a computer device, involving intercepting function calls, creating corresponding calls based on interpupillary distance, and transmitting them to the graphics driver for rendering two images. The method also includes generating a stereo image for autostereoscopic display and sending images to wearable devices with dual display panels. Furthermore, the method involves intercepting shading commands, identifying faulty shaders, replacing them with fixed shaders, and transmitting the modified command to the graphics driver for application. These innovations aim to enhance the quality and efficiency of 3D scene generation on computer devices by optimizing function calls and shader loading processes.
