- Simulation of light transport
- Global Lighting Methods
- Efficient programming of stream processors
- 3D modelling and compositing
- Volume rendering
In this module, methods are presented that enable the participants to create computer-generated images of high visual quality. This includes topics such as: Modeling a dynamic virtual 3D scene, free-form curves and surfaces, methods for global illumination, or rendering of volumetric data. Another objective of the course is to give participants an understanding of the architecture of current graphics cards, such that the graphics card is recognized as an extremely powerful stream processor with multiple parallel processing units that can also be used for complex calculations outside the realm of computer graphics. Parallel programming of the graphics card using CUDA is trained by practical examples. In addition, the course aims at improving the overall ability of the participants to perform scientific work, to solve problems, and to communicate.
None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: Object-oriented Programming, Graphics Programming.
