Rasterization on the fly is very costly in terms of memory and computation time.
Rasterization is carried out to create raster data models, which are more suitable in the analysis of movements from cell-to-cell, rather than through an infinite directional space as in vector data models.
For each cell, the rasterization finds the bottom and top height coordinate of any rigid bodies overlapping it at the center.
The table also shows that the librarians have low rasterization and book-marking skills at 45% and 50% respectively while these skills are high among the technical assistants at 95% each.
Despite those convenient features, we cannot use BrookGPU because it does not support triangular rasterization, which is key to exploiting the structure of symmetric or triangular matrices.
-- Image visualization capabilities include mosaics and montages, corridor and plan sheet alignment, vector stamping (rasterization) and raster drafting
With multiple geometry and rasterization pipelines integrated into a single accelerator, the Wildcat II 5110 delivers up to 250 percent higher performance than its Wildcat 4110 predecessor at a similar price.
The Sunnyvale, California-based company says that it has achieved a performance hike by combining two Glint R3 rasterization engines and a new geometry processor on a single AGP card.

In this case, the task computer driver may reformat data by rasterization.
Aspose.CAD.Image.Load method can be used to load DGN file, Aspose.CAD.ImageOptions.CadRasterizationOptions can be used to set vector rasterization options, Aspose.CAD.ImageOptionsBase can be used to set image options and Aspose.CAD.Image.Save method can be used to save output image.
