2 CSE472 Computer Graphics Projection Projection  - the transformation of points  from a coordinate system in n  dimensions to  a coordinate system in m  dimensions where  m<n. We will be talking about projections from 3D  to 2D, where the 3D space represents a world  coordinate system and the 2D space is a  window which is mapped to a screen  viewport.

3 CSE472 Computer Graphics Specifying a Projection Two things must be specified Projection plane  and a  center of projection Projection plane A 2D coordinate system onto which the 3D  image is to be projected.  We’ll call this the VRP  for view reference plane. Center of projection A point in space which serves as an end point for  projectors.  We’ll refer to this point as the COP.   It is also called a PRP for a  projection reference  point .

4 CSE472 Computer Graphics Projectors Projectors  - a ray originating at the center of  projection and passing through a point to be  projected.  Here is an example of a  projection: VRP COP Object in 3 space Projectors Projected image

5 CSE472 Computer Graphics Parallel Projection A simple case of a projection is if the  projectors are all in parallel.   What does this imply about the COP?  VRP COP Object in 3 space Projectors Projected image

6 CSE472 Computer Graphics Direction of Projection We can’t specify the COP for parallel projection We’ll use Direction of Project (DOP) instead

7 CSE472 Computer Graphics Some Trivia Planer geometric projection A projection onto a planer surface (planer) using  straight lines (geometric).  Why would we do  otherwise??? Foreshortening
