Dithering The last step before the drawing buffer is dithering. The color buffer has a limited number of bits to represent each color. Dithering is used to arrange colors in such a way that an illusion is created of having more colors than are actually available. Dithering is most useful for a color buffer that has few colors available. COMPARING WEBGL TO OTHER GRAPHICS TECHNOLOGIES To give you a broader understanding of WebGL and other 3D and 2D graphics technologies, the following sections briefly describe some of the most relevant technologies to you and how they compare to WebGL.

You can see that since cos 90° is zero, the dot product of two vectors where the angle between them is 90° equals zero. , if you have two vectors and the dot product between them is zero, then you know that the two vectors are orthogonal. Chapter 7 explains how the previous definition of the dot product can be used in WebGL to calculate how light is reflected from a surface. FIGURE 1-19: The geometry used for the dot product or scalar product The left side of Figure 1-19 illustrates the case when the smallest angle between the two vectors is less than 90°, which gives a positive result for the dot product.

If the fragment is outside of the scissor rectangle, then the fragment is discarded and will never reach the drawing buffer. Multisample Fragment Operations This step modifies the fragment’s alpha and coverage values as a way to perform anti-aliasing. In computer graphics, anti-aliasing refers to techniques to improve the appearance of polygon edges so they are not “jagged” — they are instead smoothed out on the screen. Stencil Test The stencil test takes the incoming fragment and performs tests on the stencil buffer to decide whether the fragment should be discarded.
