Course detail

Advanced Computer Graphics (in English)

FIT-PGPaAcad. year: 2019/2020

Scene representation for dynamic rendering, mathematical and procedural textures - design, rendering and animation, real-time rendering of complex scenes, design and implementation of animation system for articulated structures, dynamics in computer animation, soft-object animation, facial and behavioral animation, special rendering methods and techniques (non-realistic rendering, special effects).

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The students will get acquainted with the advanced computer animation and computer graphics methods suitable for dynamic and large scale scenes. They will also learn how to practically implement selected algorithms through projects.
The students will practice teamwork on the projects, work with literature, and practical experience with C/C++ and other languages.
