Computer Graphics   cap 5705

Computer Graphics is the introductory graphics course. Students will learn to program interactive graphics environments, basic illumination and modeling of curved geometry (camera, light and actors). Currently, the learning environment is OpenGL (with extensions) and C or C++.
Central concepts are: curves, surfaces, composition, matrix multiplication, parametrization.
Familiarity with C or C++ is helpful -- otherwise the learning curve is quite steep in the first weeks.
