Description

"The rendering of 3D graphic images has a language all its own. This seminar will discuss words like Phong shading, ray tracing and Renderman, all of which can produce different types of 'pretty pictures.' It is hoped that after attending this seminar, one will have an understanding of these (and other) rendering techniques, and also understand a basic idea behind each of these algorithms. Little knowledge of 3D computer graphics will be required, since the emphasis will be on explaining what different rendering algorithm produce, not details of how to implement these algorithms."
