WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR
Be aware that this is not a beginner book. It is an intermediate-level book that assumes you
are familiar with linear algebra (matrices, vectors, and quaternions), you have a strong C/C++
programming background, you have at least touched base with OpenGL or OpenGL ES, and you
basically know how computer graphics work in general.
If you have this necessary knowledge, and want to make lightning-fast progress in game and
graphics programming, then you have found the right publication.
Develop graphically sophisticated apps and games today!
The smart phone app market is progressively growing, and there is new market gap to fill that requires more graphically sophisticated applications and games. Game and Graphics Programming for iOS and Android with OpenGL ES 2.0 quickly gets you up to speed on understanding how powerful OpenGL ES 2.0 technology is in creating apps and games for amusement and effectiveness. Leading you through the development of a real-world mobile app with live code, this text lets you work with all the best features and tools that Open GL ES 2.
Welcome to Practical C# Charts and Graphics. This book is intended for C# .NET developers
who want to add professional graphics and charts to their applications. My hope is to write the
ultimate C# chart and graphics programming guide that would be useful to C# application
programmers of all skill levels.
We’ve all heard the saying “a picture’s worth a thousand words”. Creating charts and graphics
plays a very important role in every Windows application.
This is an update of an old mini tut, inspired by the beginning of the then new Out Of Bounds contest format. There were quite a few images using an incorrect or impossible shadow treatment. While there are considerably fewer entries containing this mistake I felt it might be of some help, to beginners particularly, to update it. Essentially this is intended to be of some help to those who are either beginners to graphics programs or new to the OOB concept and would appreciate some very, very basic advice....
What does it take to build an iPhone app with stunning 3D graphics? This book will show you how to apply OpenGL graphics programming techniques to any device running the iPhone OS — including the iPad and iPod Touch — with no iPhone development or 3D graphics experience required. iPhone 3D Programming provides clear step-by-step instructions, as well as lots of practical advice, for using the iPhone SDK and OpenGL.
Interactive computer graphics: A Top-Down approach with shader-Based OpenGL®, is the only introduction to computer graphics text for undergraduates that fully integrates OpenGL 3.1 and emphasizes application-based programming. Using C and C++, the top-down, programming-oriented approach allows for coverage of engaging 3D material early in the text so readers immediately begin to create their own 3D graphics. Low-level algorithms (for topics such as line drawing and filling polygons) are presented after readers learn to create graphics.
Graphic design is the phrase to refer to a career focused on the fine arts. In particular the term "graphic" to only the drawing is displayed on a flat surface (multi-material), and the verb "design" includes constructive sense, creative. Then you can understand, "graphic design" is to create an image, a work surface to a certain material, meaning the purpose of art decoration, beauty, serve the needs of children people.
Java 3D is a client−side Java application programming interface (API) developed at Sun Microsystems for rendering interactive 3D graphics using Java. Using Java 3D you will be able to develop richly interactive 3D applications, ranging from immersive games to scientific visualization applications.
A graphical user interface (GUI) is a graphical display in one or more
windows containing controls, called components, that enable a user to perform
interactive tasks. The user of the GUI does not have to create a script or
type commands at the command line to accomplish the tasks. Unlike coding
programs to accomplish tasks, the user of a GUI need notgraphical display the
details of how the tasks are performed.
The OpenGL graphics system is a software interface to graphics hardware. (The GL stands for Graphics Library.) It allows you to create interactive programs that produce color images of moving three−dimensional objects. With OpenGL, you can control computer−graphics technology to produce realistic pictures or ones that depart from reality in imaginative ways. This guide explains how to program with the OpenGL graphics system to deliver the visual effect you want.
Since its first release in 1992, OpenGL has been rapidly adopted as the graphics API of choice for
real-time interactive 3D graphics applications. The OpenGL state machine is easy to understand,
but its simplicity and orthogonality enable a multitude of interesting effects. The goal of this course is to demonstrate how to generate more satisfying images using OpenGL.
Java Programming, Fifth Edition provides the beginning programmer with a guide to developing applications
using the Java programming language. Java is popular among professional programmers because it
can be used to build visually interesting graphical user interface (GUI) and Web-based applications. Java
also provides an excellent environment for the beginning programmer—a student quickly can build useful
programs while learning the basics of structured and object-oriented programming techniques.
This textbook assumes that you have little or no programming experience.
This book shows how to build complete 2D and 3D games with all essential components
from scratch; shapes, image effects, animation, 3D model creation and use,
graphics math, collision detection, 3D audio, split-screen, and networked games. All
code examples are presented in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step format. This book
targets development for the PC and Xbox 360 and introduces development for the
Java developers new to graphics and game programming, as well as game developers new to Java 3D, will find Killer Game Programming in Java invaluable. This new book is a practical introduction to the latest Java graphics and game programming technologies and techniques. It is the first book to thoroughly cover Java's 3D capabilities for all types of graphics and game development projects.
Apple provides you with all the tools you need to create great Cocoa applications, for free. This set of tools, known
under the name Xcode, comes with Mac OS X, or you can download it from the developer section on Apple’s website.
Several good books on programming for the Mac exist, but they assume that you already have some programming
experience. This book doesn’t. It teaches you the basics of programming, in particular Objective-C programming, using
Xcode. After some 5 chapters, you will be able to create a basic program without a Graphical User Interface (GUI).
The Matlab programming language provides an excellent introductory language, with built-in graph-ical, mathematical, and user-interface capabilities. The goal is that the student learns tobuild computational models with graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that enable exploration of model behavior.
If you want to learn how to build killer user interfaces for Windows and the web, then this book is for you. It arms you with the tools and code you'll need to effectively utilize the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). From creating appealing graphics and animated structures to enhancing performance and security, you'll be programming in no time.
First you'll explore the WPF framework and learn how to develop basic applications with ASP.NET or Visual Basic(r).
When I finished my first degree in law back in 1993, I was very proud and a little bit
exhausted from the long learning period. So I decided to relax by playing a new game by
NovaLogic called Comanche.
I started the night of January 11th and finished about three days later with only a few hours
of sleep. With the new experience in my head, I decided to start computer game programming.
My goal was to program a terrain engine like Comanche. My then-girlfriend—now
wife—looked a little bit confused when a young, recently-graduated lawyer told her that
was going to be a game programmer....
