Advanced Methods in Computer Graphics: With examples in by Ramakrishnan Mukundan

By Ramakrishnan Mukundan

This e-book brings jointly a number of complex issues in special effects which are very important within the components of video game improvement, third-dimensional animation and real-time rendering. The publication is designed for final-year undergraduate or first-year graduate scholars, who're already accustomed to the fundamental thoughts in special effects and programming. It goals to supply a great beginning of complex tools corresponding to skeletal animation, quaternions, mesh processing and collision detection. those and different equipment coated within the e-book are basic to the improvement of algorithms utilized in advertisement functions in addition to research.

Example text

47) As seen earlier, the centroid C has barycentric coordinates (1/3, 1/3, 1/3). The barycentric coordinates of a point Q with respect to P1 , P2 , P3 have a geometrical interpretation as the ratios of the areas of triangles QP2 P3 , QP3 P1 , QP1 P2 to the area of the triangle P1 P2 P3 . 48) The barycentric coordinates given in Eq. 48 are unique for every point on the plane of the triangle. They can be directly used to get the interpolated value of any quantity defined at the vertices of the triangle.

A brief description of these programs is given below. 1. cpp These are the header and implementation files for a scene graph class as discussed in Sect. 5. The documentation of methods in this class can be found in Appendix B. 50 3 Scene Graphs 2. cpp This program uses a scene graph to model a scene consisting of four different stationary objects and demonstrates the use of the classes discussed in Sect. 5. The scene graph has a simple structure consisting of the World node and four object nodes.

If a model is made up of several parts as in Fig. 1a, where parts move or rotate relative to their neighbours, gaps can appear at joints when the model is animated. The next section addresses this problem, and introduces the method of vertex blending for creating deformable surface patches between parts that move relative to each other.
