Advanced Animation and Rendering Techniques: Theory and Practice
Dealing with state-of-the-art techniques in rendering and animation, this text provides a unique synthesis of advanced techniques not previously available in one coherent source. *A clear account of graphics algorithms in sufficient detail for ease of implementation together with a comprehensive study of the underlying theoretical principles. *Case studies based on work commercially produced for television with code examples in C. *Extensive coverage of advanced animation techniques, particularly soft body animation, articulated structures and a detailed description of scripting techniques. *A colour section in which almost all the images have been produced by the authors using the techniques described in the book.
