Hi, I'm having a very simple terrain map with tiles!
I can render them OK, but there are thousands of tiles , but not all of them are on screen, only a portion (that ahead of view)! So i'm doing a batch rendering, collect only tiles that appear on screen then Render them all in 1 call!
I try to use D3DXVec3Project to project vertex on World space to Screen space, then detect which triangle is on Screen, however this is very slow, call this for whole map take to 7ms (about 250x250 calls ).
Right now i'm using iso view (D3DXMatrixOrthoLH), there is no camera or eye, when I want to move arround the map, I just translate the world!
I think this is a very common problem that all engine must face to optimize, but I cant search for it ! Is it visible detection , culling or clipping... ?
Thanks! Should I just render all the tiles on screen, and let DirectX auto clip for us ? (If I remember well, last time I try render them all, it's still very slow)
