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
  • Transport-, volume visualization- and rendering equation
  • Algorithms and techniques for the solution of the volume visualization and rendering equation
  • Algorithms and techniques of image based rendering
  • Models for the description of optical material properties and light sources
  • Methods and algorithms for the acquisition of optical material properties
  • Digital Photography

Starting the lecture

Please inscribe yourself to the lecture and the exercises, on BASIS and on eCampus.

Please also inscribe yourself to the externmailinglist

In this lecture you will have the chance to learn many interesting theoretical as well as practical topics. In case you have a problem understanding something, please always feel free to write to the mailing list. This should be a place where you students can talk freely about the lecture, so please do not hesitate to ask and reply! Of course, the tutors are also subscribed on the mailing list and will reply as well.

Good start!
