UNIT #3 - 3D Graphing in OpenGL
Simple 3D Concepts
In OpenGL graphics, it is possible to draw objects in 3D, including things
such as lighting and animation. The following programs will help in
learning some of these concepts.
Image Processing and Creating Your Own 3D Surface
In the second part of this project, we will be taking a graphic image,
process the pixel data in that file to create a new image, and then use
that image to help create a surface built of triangle strips that are
lit properly and perhaps even colored.
Assignments - UNIT #3
The following pages describe the assignments in UNIT #3. Review
them carefully, and when you have satisfied all the objectives, and have
completed a final web page presenting this unit, fill out
the Self Evaluation form and submit your final project for grading.
Extra Credit and Approval from your Peers
You are encouraged to go beyond the basic requirements to investigate
advanced features of OpenGL Graphics or topics related to dynamical systems
and chaos that we may not have time to cover in class. Extra credit is
freely given for innovative approaches or advanced studies related to
the units covered in this class, so challenge yourself and amaze your
friends, but expect rewards
from the teacher too!
