Hi, I''m using a ROAM implementation to render my landscape which is just a binary triangle tree. Anyway the problem is that my frustum culling seems to cull all of the landscape after I have moved the camera to a certain altitude or rotated the camera (and hence the frustum) about the x-axis - in both cases the landscape should still be visible, but everything works fine in other circumstances. For frustum culling I''m simply testing the vertices of each triangle which is where the problem is I suppose, can someone tell me how I fix this? I''ve tried using sphere-frustum culling but that culls absolutely nothing, if anyone has any ideas on why that is I''d greatly appreciate it. If I skip frustum culling for the patches'' (the landscape is made up of a few of those) base tris then everything seems to work fine. Thanks for your help. The only thing that''''s constant in the universe is change.
