Learning outcomes

I'm sorry to inform you that the lecture will not be held in WS2021 but is planned in WS02022. 

After successful completion of the course, students are able to plan, implement, test and evaluate the design and programming of a rendering engine. The scene description, graphical APIs and optimization techniques play an important role.

 

 

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

Teaching methods
