Figure 12.3. Stereo-panning algorithm for attenuation of sound intensity is based on the azimuth angle relative to the userís current view direction.
Figure 12.4. Sound ellipsoids correspond to linear spatialization boundaries for attenuation of Sound node intensity.
Figure 12.5. Derivation and example values for an ellipse semiminor axis, given focus location and front/back distances. The upper plot shows intensity values corresponding to boundaries in the lower diagram.
