Illustrative Computer Graphics


Important: Relevant Links will be visible below only after logging in!

Qualified students:
Information Engineering students, bachelor in-depth lectures or master program

Experience similar to modules Mathematical Foundations for Computer Science, Informatics I and Computer Graphics and interactive Systems (or similar), elementary programming skills. Register with ZEuS.

The Illustrative Computer Graphics focus on approaches to automatically abstract images and geometry data and on the simulation of artistic processes like painting with oil and water colors.

  • 2D-Methods for the production of non-photorealistic Computer Graphics (Dithering, Halftoning, artistic screening, Stipping)
  • Manipulation of 2.5-dimensional Data (Images with depth), edge enhancement, depth differences, Unsharp Masking
  • Non-photorealistic rendering of 3D Geometry data (Computation of geometric Features, Minima and Maxima of derivations and curvatures, finding silhouettes, numerical problemes)

A good overview is collected here:
