View Full Version : Hide faces not seen through camera?

I am working on a project with a huge cityscape, with lots of buildings. The poly count is pretty crazy.

I was wondering if a script that would hide or not calculate faces not seen through the camera would be the best option? If so how would I go about writing a script for that?

Or anything else that would save on rendering time with such a huge scene.

Thanks!

Make the buildings separate objects and decrease the far plane frustum on your camera to cull out most of your heavy scene.


Cheers
