Patch parameterization.
Topological refinement splits coarse mesh faces into refined faces.
This patch parameterzation describes the relationship between one of these refined faces and its corresponding coarse face. It is used both for refined faces that are represented as full limit surface parametric patches as well as for refined faces represented as simple triangles or quads. This parameterization is needed to interpolate primvar data across a refined face.
The U,V and refinement level parameters describe the scale and offset needed to map a location on the patch between levels of refinement. The encoding of these values exploits the quadtree organization of the faces produced by subdivision. We encode the U,V origin of the patch using two 10bit integer values and the refinement level as a 4bit integer. This is sufficient to represent up through 10 levels of refinement.
Special consideration must be given to the refined faces resulting from irregular coarse faces. We adopt a convention similar to Ptex texture mapping and define the parameterization for these faces in terms of the regular faces resulting from the first topological splitting of the irregular coarse face.
When computing the basis functions needed to evaluate the limit surface parametric patch representing a refined face, we also need to know which edges of the patch are interpolated boundaries. These edges are encoded as a boundary bitmask identifying the boundary edges of the patch in sequential order starting from the first vertex of the refined face.
A sparse topological refinement (like feature adaptive refinement) can produce refined faces that are adjacent to faces at the next level of subdivision. We identify these transitional edges with a transition bitmask using the same encoding as the boundary bitmask.
For triangular subdivision schemes we specify the parameterization using a similar method. Alternate triangles at a given level of refinement are parameterized from their opposite corners and encoded as occupying the opposite diagonal of the quadtree hierarchy. The third barycentric coordinate is dependent on and can be derived from the other two coordinates. This encoding also takes inspiration from the Ptex texture mapping specification.
