    Course overview

    These figures show photon mapping results of the Boeing 777 model consisting of 366 M triangles in different views. Each rendering frame is provided to users with less than 100 ms latency time, while allowing dynamic changes on camera, light, and material setting. This was presented as T-Rex rendering system at TVCG.

    In this course we will discuss various topics to create 2D images computationally generated from three dimensional model representations. Particularly, we will focus on the following topic:

  • Basic rendering equation
  • Texture mapping and shadow mapping for interactive rendering
  • Various global illumination techniques
  • Interactive global illumination techniques
  • Graphics hardware and GPU programming
  • What you will get at the end of the course:

  • Broad understanding on various topics related to interactive rendering,
  • Programming skill and in-depth knowledge on interactive global illumination.
