Graphics Project for University of Miami

In Advanced Graphics, Spring '95, we studied ray tracing, radiosity, and other photo-realistic techniques for computers. Of course, we may think this is photo-realistic, but in ten years we will all be laughing about the image quality. (Original images are 1024 by 1024 by 24 bit color. Very nice to see.)

These ray tracings are formed by starting from the eye point (the camera position) and sending a sight ray through each pixel of the picture. The sight ray bounces off objects with different surface characteristics and return any photon energy to the sender. Bitmaps may be used to color objects or specify their transparency.
