Computer Vision and its Applications in Graphics WS 2010/2011

Aktuelles Semester
  • Dr.-Ing. Thorsten Thormaehlen
Sprechstunde: n.V.
Zeit: Mo 16-18
Umfang: 2+2
Beginn: 18.10.2010
Ort: F122
Voraussetzungen: Bachelor


This lecture covers advanced topics in the field of computer vision and computer graphics. It will be given in English. The target audience are students in computer science or related fields. Basic knowledge about 3D geometry, image processing, and computer graphics is beneficial. In order to be admitted to the final oral exam at the end of the semester, five homework assignments must be passed.

The lecture is structured as follows:

  1. Scene representation
    • Scene elements: lighting, geometry, cameras
    • Basic animations
    • Homework: Generate your own animated scene using Collada
  2. The history of visual special effects
