Abstract. We introduce hybrid billboard clouds, a part-mesh, part-billboard representation used to simplify 3D models in the context of realtime rendering. Our hybrid generation method produces simpled models with improved appearance when compared to models generated by either image-based or mesh simplcation alone.
