This sequel to Graphics Gems (Academic Press, 1990), and Graphics Gems II (Academic Press, 1991) is a practical collection of computer graphics programming tools and techniques. Graphics Gems III contains a larger percentage of gems related to modeling and rendering, particularly lighting and shading. This new edition also covers image processing, numerical and programming techniques, modeling and transformations, 2D and 3D geometry and algorithms,ray tracing and radiosity, rendering, and more clever new tools and tricks for graphics programming. Volume III also includes a disk containing source codes for either the IBM or Mac versions featuring all code from Volumes I, II, and III. Author David Kirk lends his expertise to the Graphics Gems series in Volume III with his far-reaching knowledge of modeling and rendering, specifically focusing on the areas of lighting and shading. Volume III includes a disk containing source codes for both the IBM and Mac versions featuring all code from volumes I, II, and III. Graphics Gems I, II, and III are sourcebooks of ideas for graphics programmers. They also serve as toolboxes full of useful tricks and techniques for novice programmers and graphics experts alike. Each volume reflects the personality and particular interests of its respective editor. Includes a disk containing source codes for both the IBM and Mac versions featuring code from volumes I, II, and III Features all new graphics gems Explains techniques for making computer graphics implementations more efficient Emphasizes physically based modeling, rendering, radiosity, and ray tracing Presents techniques for making computer graphics implementations more efficient

Digital Cinematography presents computer animators with the tools and techniques at their disposal to give their animation the look and feel of a real Hollywood movie. Starting with the basics of lighting, camera movement, and genre, the book teaches how to effectively create interior and exterior lighting, how to light characters to invoke a mood or theme, and even how to create special effects. For animators who would like to create 3D computer games, this book illustrates how to light scenes effectively as well as how to cover up modeling and texturing mistakes. This book is an invaluable guide to the cinematic art of computer animation. Key Features * Exercises and examples focus on the implementation of 3D, and the functionality of specific graphic tools such as omnidirectional lights, depth of fields, and image processing * Historical reference of films photographed in the style of the tutorial, as well as images of both the process and the final result * Cinematic styles covered include film noir, naturalism, expressionism, comedy, and cartoon * Cinematic principles covered include key light, fill light, back light, set light, single source lighting, contrast, projection and gobos, camera lenses, color usage, composition and leading lines * Multi-platform CD-ROM provides hands-on project files for each of the tutorials, enabling the reader to explore virtually all of the book's contents in 3D
