Course Project


Advanced Computer Graphics

Overview
We have covered several advanced topics in computer graphics in class including Realistic Image Synthesis, Computational Photography, Shape from Shading, 3-D Scanning, Multispectral Imaging, Imaging Spectroscopy, Curves and Surfaces and Physics-Based Simulations (Particle systems and Cloth Simulation). Your course project should implement research that demonstrates your under- standing of one of these topics.

Programming Assignments


Sampling and Warping

Overview
In this exercise you will generate sample points on various domains: disks, spheres, hemispheres, and a few more. The Nori2 code base has interactive visualization and testing tools to make working with point sets as intuitive as possible. Note that all the work you do in this assignment will serve as building blocks for later assignments when we apply Monte Carlo integration to render images.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
The work you submit must be your own. Although it is fine to have some level of discussion with piers on assignments, the work you submit must be your own. You may work in groups of 2 for the programming assignments and the course project, but all other work should be done individually. DO NOT POST SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS AND PROGRAMMING ASSIGNMENTS ONLINE!

 

TEXTBOOKS: None. There is an assigned reading list of research papers, notes and tutorials that cover topics in the course.

 

MATERIAL AND SUPPLY FEE: None

 

MANDATORY HONESTY STATEMENT:
All students admitted to the University of Florida have signed a statement of academic honesty committing themselves to be honest in all academic work and understanding that failure to comply with this commitment will result in disciplinary action. This statement is a reminder to uphold your obligation as a UF student and to be honest in all work submitted and exams taken in this course and all others.

 

UF Counseling Services:
Resources are available on-campus for students having personal problems or lacking clear career and academic goals. The resources include: UF Counseling & Wellness Center, 3190 Radio Rd, 392-1575, psychological and psychiatric services. Career Resource Center, Reitz Union, 392-1601, career and job search services.

 

MANDATORY SOFTWARE USE STATEMENT:
All faculty, staff and student of the University are required and expected to obey the laws and legal agreements governing software use. Failure to do so can lead to monetary damages and/or criminal penalties for the individual violator. Because such violations are also against University policies and rules, disciplinary action will be taken as appropriate. We, the members of the University of Florida community, pledge to uphold ourselves and our peers to the highest standards of honesty and integrity.
