The first practical guide to creating stunningly realistic images on your PC using a new and exciting graphics technology called radiosity Radiosity A Programmers Perspective Once the exclusive domain of a handful of academic researchers working with high-powered graphics workstations, now you can use radiosity to create extremely realistic, true-color images using off-the-shelf personal computers. Radiosity offers the ability to accurately render diffuse reflections, color bleeding between surfaces, realistic shadows, and detailed shading within shadows. More than this, it can create photorealistic images that are impossible to achieve using conventional ray tracing techniques. This book offers you a unique opportunity to explore this technology in depth. Radiosity: A Programmers Perspective provides step-by-step guidance for the development of a fully functional, radiosity-based rendering program for Microsoft Windows and other graphical environments, including:A detailed explanation of radiosity theory and its associated algorithms (no knowledge of higher mathematics required!) Complete, fully documented, and compiler-independent C++ source code for HELIOS, a radiosity renderer for Microsoft Windows 3. 1 and Windows NTAn extensive guide to the computer graphics radiosity literatureAbout the Author:
