CS 446 - Real Time Rendering

Examines real-time rendering of high-quality interactive graphics. Studies the advances in graphics hardware and algorithms that are allowing applications such as video games, simulators, and virtual reality to become capable of near cinematic-quality visuals at real-time rates. Topics include non-photorealistic rendering, occlusion culling, level of detail, terrain rendering, shadow generation, image-based rendering, and physical simulation. Over several projects throughout the semester students work in small teams to develop a small 3-D game engine incorporating some state-of-the-art techniques. (Y)
