  Product:Visible Worlds - Portal Compiler

      Visible Worlds is a tool to help speed up 3D Games. It does this by pre-calculating the visible objects from every location within a world. The programmer, then uses this visibility information (support code included) too only render 'visible' objects from the cameras view point. Giving your program a huge performance boost.

      Since games using Visible Worlds only render the parts of the world a player can see, this allows your artists to create richer and more complex worlds. Allowing your program to run faster and function even better on low spec'd computers.

While Visible Worlds main objective is to speed up the drawing of your world. It also encapsulates various other build in calculations to assist game programmers. Including, Visibility triggers, Automatic Levels Of details and Way Point Maps just to name a few.
