Aim of course

The goal of this lecture is to gain understanding of the design and the implementation rendering engines.

Subject of course

In this course we will focus on the following topics:

  • Requirements for the design of rendering engines
  • Hardware and Graphics APIs (OpenGL, Direct3D, Vulkan,..)
  • Scene Representation (Scene graphs, display lists, command buffers,...)
  • Static and Dynamic Data (Incremental Update Techniques)
  • Optimizations (Caching, Culling, Level of Detail, Bounding Volume Hierarchies, Just-In-Time Optimization)
  • Resource Management 
  • Domain Specific Languages (HLSL, Spark, FShade, Semantic Scene Graph,..)
  • Reusable Components/Design for Rendering Engines
