"Focus On Curves and Surfaces" gives you the tools you need to build exciting, high-detail characters and backgrounds for your games! Whether you're a serious game programmer or just interested in the fields of CAD, 3D modeling, and visualization, this book gives you what you're looking for in three easy-to-follow sections. Section One starts with the conceptual building blocks of 3D graphics. Put these ideas into practice as Section Two walks you through Bezier curves, B-splines, and the more advanced NURBS (NonUniform Rational B-Splines). Finally, build upon your knowledge of curve construction as you create exciting surfaces in Section Three. Go from the basics to hardcore 3D graphics programming in a matter of pages!
