Chapter 3 Scene Graphs Overview A scene graph is a data structure commonly used to represent hierarchical relationships between transformations applied to a set of objects in a three-dimensional scene. It finds applications in a variety of acceleration and rendering algorithms.

We will also later add a camera as an object belonging to Group-4. The transformation hierarchy represented by scene graphs is explored in more detail in the next section. 2 Transformation Hierarchy A transformation applied to one part of an object often cascades with the transformations applied to the adjacent interconnected parts. For example, a change in the orientation of Part-2 of the model in Fig. 2a also affects Part-3. Such dependencies can be easily converted into hierarchical representations that are suitable for scene graphs.
