Description

This lecture discusses advanced rendering techniques that aim at highly realistic images. Particular emphasis lies on high quality depictions of materials.

In detail the topics of this lecture are:

  • Foundations of radio- and photometry
  • Models for the description of optical material properties and light sources
  • Methods and algorithms for the acquisition of optical material properties
    Algorithms and techniques of image based rendering
  • Digital Photography

Hinweis: Diplomstudenten können sich über diese Vorlesung zusammen mit "Digitale Geometrische Modelle" prüfen lassen.

Assignment notes

Running Matlab: Unfortunately, there is a bug in the current MATLAB installation in the pool. Before running Matlab it is therefore required to define a certain environment variable. Choose My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> New (in User Variables). Now define MATLAB_PREFDIR=C:\TEMP\<username>
