Course objectives
The goal of this subject is to provide students with overview of computer graphics interfaces. Students also gain a practical knowledge of standard OpenGL Application Programming Interface. When completing this course, students will be able to implement a broad spectrum of computer graphics applications.
Learning outcomes
After passing this course, students will be able to: - understand the existing implementations of GPU algorithms - design and implement simple GPU algorithms - apply the knowledge about GPU implementation of basic methods of computer graphics to our tasks in CG
  • Aplication interfaces for Computer Graphics.
  • Basic principles of rendering using powerful graphics accelerators, OpenGL Shading Language.
  • Rendering pipeline.
  • Structure and functions of graphics API.
  • Data types and graphic primitives.
  • Coordinate systems, transformations.
  • Vertex buffer objects, vertex array objects, lighting, materials.
  • Alpha blending, fog, bitmaps.
  • Texturing, multitexturing.
  • Per-fragment operations, other effects.
