UNIT #2 - 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. We will be trying to focus the actual
graphic that you do to support your project for "Imagining the Future".
Image Processing and Creating Your Own 3D Surface
For some projects, it might be advantageous to utilize a graphic image
possibly as a surface in order to investigate maxima or minima more
easily. By studying the following three examples, you should be able to
alter the pixel data for a graphic image to create a new picture,
and then use that new image to help create a surface built of triangle
strips that are lit properly and colored appropriately.
