public abstract class Fog
extends Leaf

The Fog leaf node defines a set of fog parameters common to all types of fog. These parameters include the fog color and a region of influence in which this Fog node is active. A Fog node also contains a list of Group nodes that specifies the hierarchical scope of this Fog. If the scope list is empty, then the Fog node has universe scope: all nodes within the region of influence are affected by this Fog node. If the scope list is non-empty, then only those Leaf nodes under the Group nodes in the scope list are affected by this Fog node (subject to the influencing bounds).

If the regions of influence of multiple Fog nodes overlap, the Java 3D system will choose a single set of fog parameters for those objects that lie in the intersection. This is done in an implementation-dependent manner, but in general, the Fog node that is "closest" to the object is chosen.

Java 3D 1.3

removeScope

public void removeScope(Group scope)
Removes the specified Group node from this Fog node's list of scopes. If the specified object is not in the list, the list is not modified.

CapabilityNotSetException - if appropriate capability is not set and this object is part of live or compiled scene graph
RestrictedAccessException - if any group node in this node's list of scopes is part of a compiled scene graph
Since:
Java 3D 1.3

updateNodeReferences

public void updateNodeReferences(NodeReferenceTable referenceTable)
Callback used to allow a node to check if any nodes referenced by that node have been duplicated via a call to cloneTree. This method is called by cloneTree after all nodes in the sub-graph have been duplicated. The cloned Leaf node's method will be called and the Leaf node can then look up any node references by using the getNewObjectReference method found in the NodeReferenceTable object. If a match is found, a reference to the corresponding Node in the newly cloned sub-graph is returned. If no corresponding reference is found, either a DanglingReferenceException is thrown or a reference to the original node is returned depending on the value of the allowDanglingReferences parameter passed in the cloneTree call.

NOTE: Applications should not call this method directly. It should only be called by the cloneTree method.

Overrides:
updateNodeReferences in class SceneGraphObject
Parameters:
referenceTable - a NodeReferenceTableObject that contains the getNewObjectReference method needed to search for new object instances.
