CMSC 426: Image Processing (Computer Vision)

CMSC 427: Computer Graphics David Jacobs Todays Class Whirlwind intro to graphics What problems does graphics deal with? Examples of leading edge work. Applications

What well cover Fundamental issues underlying these. Class structure and logistics Computer Graphics: Possible Definitions

Using computers to create images? Creating realistic images of the world Also creating semi-realistic images Information visualization

Realistic Images Geometry Lighting/Intensities Motion Geometry 3D Models Projection Visibility

Geometry Projection, Visibility The Walkthru Project Lighting

Modeling Lighting Reflectance Texture Shadows (visibility)

Interreflections Lighting (from Debevec) Source emits photons Light

And then some reach the eye/camera. Photons travel in a straight line When they hit an object they:

bounce off in a new direction or are absorbed (exceptions later). BRDF Measuring BRDF Skin Reflectance
