Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice, Third Edition, remains the most authoritative introduction to the field. The first edition, the original "Foley and van Dam," helped to define computer graphics and how it could be taught. The second edition became an even more comprehensive resource for practitioners and students alike. This third edition has been completely rewritten to provide detailed and up-to-date coverage of key concepts, algorithms, technologies, and applications. The authors explain the principles, as well as the mathematics, underlying computer graphics-knowledge that is essential for successful work both now and in the future. Early chapters show how to create 2D and 3D pictures right away, supporting experimentation. Later chapters, covering a broad range of topics, demonstrate more sophisticated approaches. Sections on current computer graphics practice show how to apply given principles in common situations, such as how to approximate an ideal solution on available hardware, or how to represent a data structure more efficiently. Topics are reinforced by exercises, program-ming problems, and hands-on projects. This revised edition features * New coverage of the rendering equation, GPU architecture considerations, and importance- sampling in physically based rendering * An emphasis on modern approaches, as in a new chapter on probability theory for use in Monte-Carlo rendering * Implementations of GPU shaders, software rendering, and graphics-intensive 3D interfaces * 3D real-time graphics platforms-their design goals and trade-offs-including new mobile and browser platforms * Programming and debugging approaches unique to graphics development The text and hundreds of figures are presented in full color throughout the book. Programs are written in C++, C#, WPF, or pseudocode-whichever language is most effective for a given example. Source code and figures from the book, testbed programs, and additional content will be available from the authors' website (cgpp.net) or the publisher's website (informit.com/title/9780321399526). Instructor resources will be available from the publisher. The wealth of information in this book makes it the essential resource for anyone working in or studying any aspect of computer graphics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best reference on how graphics work in today's computers that I have found 6. Februar 2014
Von PurpleVermont - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a technical writer and published author who has spent the last couple of years working to get up to speed on the latest in computer hardware. One area that I've really struggled with has been 3D graphics, GPUs and related areas of technology. It's easy to find material explaining what a GPU is or the steps in a 3D graphics pipeline; almost impossible to find anything that will actually take you through the steps of understanding what these things are, why they matter, and how they are used.

This is the only book/ebook/website/anything I've found that even comes close to hitting the mark. I've read around 40% of it so far, and even though it's oriented more towards those who will actually do computer graphics programming, the underpinnings are so well laid out that it has greatly enhanced my understanding even at the hardware level. I can only imagine it is all the more useful for those approaching it from the software angle, even if the exact APIs and frameworks used are a bit different.

Furthermore, the writing is understandable. I personally orient my own writing towards ensuring the reader can comprehend what I'm saying, and I recognize the same focus here. The authors anticipate areas of confusion and address them ahead of time, and everything is cross-referenced in just the right places. Even the way the code snippets are laid out is clever, with a form of "nesting" used to emphasize the parts being discussed.

The math does get a bit dense at times. And I think the book would benefit from some editing to cut down on the very long paragraphs, which make digesting the concepts a little more difficult than they would be otherwise. But these are minor issues.

I also like the Kindle version being properly formatted like a real book so I don't have to use a magnifying glass on fuzzy tables and so forth.

Overall, a very fine piece of content for anyone who wants to learn how computer graphics work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen 2nd edition first 3. März 2014
Von Yves Daoust - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Computer Graphics is indeed a must for anyone being involved in the design and implementation of CG algorithm. This is undisputable.

Anyway I was disappointed by the third edition, in big part for the quasi-disappearance of 2D topics. I will continue to recommend the 2nd edition, way better in my opinion, and still up-to-date on many subjects.

4.0 von 5 Sternen College text for several top notch universities. This version ... 20. Juli 2014
Von Stephen Lossner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
College text for several top notch universities. This version is greatly improved over earlier editions. Wish authors had chosen OpenGL API instead of WPF. OpenGL is available on most current desktop, and mobile platforms. This book is the must have book for someone desiring to get a firm grasp on graphics programming at all levels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It is a new book -- not just a new edition. 24. Juli 2013
Von IBLUES - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
**** Updated as 8/1/2013 ****

I know some people have the false expectancy that I will read the 1100 pages before reviewing the book. However, I'm basing the review based on what I have read up to know and what I have browse in the book.

Note that if you have the second edition, this is a whole new book. Completely rewritten.

Some important facts. This is not an OpenGL book. It does have a bit of opengl and bit of g3d. It does uses WPF to demonstrate 2D and 3D Concepts.

The authors feel that is important to cover 2D before 3D (I do not agree)

Have in mind that the authors are authority in their fields, so while I may not agree with all their choices, I do respect them.

This book is better design as a textbook or reference book. I'm not sure if you are learning for the first time, it may be the best book to go by. Remember that the strength of previous edition (and this one) has never been the rendering software, but the concepts in the book. With this said, the way that concepts are explained in this edition differ greatly from second edition. Here, it will depend in taste. I find that this book feels more like a traditional textbook (3rd edition). It feels a bit more like Hearn, Baker and Carithers (with this book having their own issues).

It is important that you browse the book before making a decision.
If you are looking for OpenGL book, then read OpenGL Bible (for example)

I like the book and I think is a great addition to the collection. I'm still taking by the fact that they don't use OpenGL. but oh, well... too bad...

I will try to keep updating this review in a few weeks.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Convoluted 16. August 2013
Von A C++/C# programer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is not the CGPP we've come to love for years. The book includes superficial, convoluted information on CG topics. It wasted quite a bit of pages showing off M$'s WPF as an example of good graphic framework. Problem is that WPF is already deprecated by M$.
I returned my copy.
