2 “Titanic” What is an Image / Video?
• Array of pixels (one or more numbers)
• A video is a time sequence of images Illumination • How they are formed:
– Objects in the world
(static or dynamic)
– Imaging device
(eye, camera) Camera • We want to synthesize images/videos Basic Elements
Interaction Objects Basic Elements
– How do we model (mathematically represent) objects?
– How do we construct models of specific objects?
– How do we represent the motions of objects?
– How do we give animators control of this motion?
– How do we simulate the real-world behavior of light?
– How do we simulate the formation of images?
– How do we enable humans and computers to interact?
– How do we design human-computer interfaces? Modeling
• 3D points • 3D lines and curves • surfaces (BREPs): polygons,
patches • volumetric representations • image-based representations Attributes
