Graphics processor and method of image generation

Abstract : A graphics processor in which vertex records additionally comprise a texture index, referring to a position in a texture index table. This position is used to store a dynamic characterising value for that vertex. When a render target processes the vertices to render a respective image, it does so in a manner modulated by the corresponding dynamic characterising value retrieved from the texture index buffer in for a preceding iteration of the image generation, while an additional texture index render target retrieve the value from the texture index buffer for each vertex record under consideration and to copy it into the texture index copy buffer for the next iteration. A number of selection mechanisms based on the positioning of containers in the image space are presented, using the dynamic characterising value to register selections and render images accordingly.
