Availability This title is out of print. Description Computer animation and graphics—once rare, complicated, and comparatively expensive—are now prevalent in everyday life from the computer screen to the movie screen.
Low-level algorithms for topics such as line drawing and filling polygons are presented after students learn to create graphics. Write a customer review. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

Hardcover Verified Purchase. I thought that this book was quite good explaining the theory of computer graphics while using OpenGL Core Profile for the API for the practical side of things. I really liked the fact that the core profile of OpenGL was used for the code examples. This is definitely the way to go for OpenGL. The fixed function pipeline is on its way out.
Also I'm glad the author discussed shaders and buffers so early on in the book rather than use a wrapper library.
The book contains excellent exercises for students to answer, although I didn't really go into them. I had some trouble in getting the code to work on Windows 7 64 bit using MS visual studio express edition. I ended up downloading the latest versions of glew and freeglut rather than using the libraries that the author had packaged in a zip file with his code.
I also had to fix a bug in the code that read from the shader files. There are a few other mistakes too regarding offsets of buffer data in vertex array objects. The code example of bump mapping is just plain wrong and I haven't got it to work yet. The author does give me a framework to use for setting up OpenGL but code examples should always work and not be so difficult to setup.
I really wish the author had put just a little more effort with some of it. The book is a little expensive too. It's double the price of some other books on the market on the same subject e.
OpenGL Superbible 5th Ed which I also own although that book is just plain terrible with use of a wrapper library for vertex arrays, at least its code works right off the bat. I'm not sure if this is because of my version of Windows or not. Overall, I give three stars as the theory was really good though I felt at this price the quality of the code was lacking.
Author as in all his previous editions tries to explain all the aspect neccessary yo grasp the topic. Strangly i have noticed that that since the most 3rd versipn not enougth aytention is given to bump mapping mathetatical side is assuming the reader knows differentials but no practical example is given. Very beautif part of them is SLERP thich opens the eyes of the reader to intepolation techniques and its not mentioned in the book. Paperback Verified Purchase.
Having looked at both of these books I liked Angel's better, but it still leaves a lot to be desired. To supplement this book I would recommend the tutorial by "arcsynthesis" which is really good.
I learned mostly from the tutorial and supplemented the theory side with the book. About the book: The book covers graphics theory in a decent way, although I find it quite dry and hard to follow at times; but most of the stuff needed is there. On the examples side it is quite bad. Some examples printed in the book are different from the ones available for download. The download ones are buggy compared to the printed version. As well the code is nicely organised in the book, however, the code online is horrible in my opinion, and on top of it all the makefiles provided don't work.
