- Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction
The aim of this course is to provide theory behind geometric modeling and modeling of materials, give students an overview of methods used in the process of creating 2D and 3D graphics and how to apply those methods in praxis. At the seminars, students will learn how to design and create three-dimensional scene, create and apply textures imitating materials (e.g., wall finishes, wood, sky) and geometrical details, and position and set-up lights in the scene.
