One saving grace is that any 3D clouds in your scene, which would be the most expensive part of your sky, aren’t needed for the purpose of creating a cube map for fog colors. So, any clouds in your scene may be omitted while generating the cube map. Not only does this make the cube map generation faster, but it also removes objects in the sky that move relative to the eye-point in your cube map. So you don’t need to regenerate it as the camera moves, and you may use the same cube map to compute the fog colors for any object in your scene regardless of its position.

28) and this depends only on the known quantities g    and F  . 29) that returns the squared culling distance for any input t representing the depth of a point , where we have again set m  2 g    a . We can find the local maxima for the squared distance by taking a derivative of this function with respect to t and setting it equal to zero. 5. The horizontal culling distance d is equal to the maximum distance parallel to the fog plane beyond which objects are completely fogged. 31). 6.

12) In order to incorporate case (d) into this formula, we need to eliminate the last term inside the brackets whenever F   and F   have the same sign. This can be accomplished by replacing F   with min   F    sgn  F    ,0  in the last term to arrive at the formula g     a  min   F    sgn  F    ,0  2  V k  F    F      . 13) 2 FV   This formula also works for case (a) because both terms are eliminated when F   and F   are both positive, so we have found a single unified fog function that can be used in all cases.
