This book introduces students to the core concepts of computer graphics with full integration of OpenGL and an emphasis on application-based programming. using C and C++, the top-down, programming-oriented approach allows students to quickly begin creating their own 3D graphics. Low-level algorithms, such as those for line drawing and filling polygons, are presented after students learn to create interactive graphics programs.
This book covers all the topics in a fundamental course, including lighe-material interactions, shading, modeling, curves and surfaces, antialiasing, rasterization, texture mapping, and compositing.
