In this paper we discuss the control flow of rendering algorithms in general purpose multicomputers, which are connected to specialised rasterizer hardware. In the first section, we present the MANNA / VISA system. In the next section we have a general look at the rendering process on multicomputers, and finally we construct a classification scheme and evaluate it on the MANNA / VISA system.
