Not applicable.
Recommended optional programme components:
Not applicable.
Course contents (annotation):
The subject provides information on general 3 D modelling and photorealistic visualisation.
More advanced and demanding procedures are explained - Surface modelling, Nurbs modelling,
global illumination. More detailed attention is devoted to the creation of animation outputs.
