Computer Graphics and Animation: Principles and Programming KIT307

Hobart, Launceston

Introduction

This unit will look at the creation and use of 2- and 3-dimensional graphical information and animations. The mathematical and algorithmic techniques used in generating computer graphics will be covered, as well as the programming methods to build the tools needed to implement them. Emphasis will be placed on object-oriented programming in C++ and on use of OpenGL.
