does it Graphite has a paged load mechanism to load resources (meshes, terrain elevation and texture maps) ? or this must be implemented in the engine used?

Hi,

Currently Graphite is relying on the engine host for most of the background loading but we are working to change that and provide some out-of-the-box solutions. For example, the latest version, supports accessing terrain data in a thread-safe manner once you have it memory but the loading of data is not yet thread safe (unless you are using DirectX in thread safe mode).

Lately there are also some new features that rely on multi-threading. For example, virtual texturing (aka mega texturing), is also supported and allows terrain textures (diffuse and normalmaps) of up to 256000 x 256000 pixels, with their pages being streamed in background.

Kind Regards,
Adrian L.
