Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand advanced methods of computer graphics in depth. First, advanced graphical programming will be explained using Unity. Higher modeling techniques and complex data structures for graphical data are a further focus. The sampling and reconstruction of continuous signals play an important role in the consideration of discrete information (raster graphics). Surface design by applying textures is another important aspect of photorealistic imaging. Special chapters such as modeling, non-photorealistic rendering, or visualization will conclude the course.
