Omtale Introduction to Computer Graphics
Teach Your Students How to Create a Graphics Application


Introduction to Computer Graphics: A Practical Learning Approach guides students in developing their own interactive graphics application. The authors show step by step how to implement computer graphics concepts and theory using the EnvyMyCar (NVMC) framework as a consistent example throughout the text. They use the WebGL graphics API to develop NVMC, a simple, interactive car racing game.





Each chapter focuses on a particular computer graphics aspect, such as 3D modeling and lighting. The authors help students understand how to handle 3D geometric transformations, texturing, complex lighting effects, and more. This practical approach leads students to draw the elements and effects needed to ultimately create a visually pleasing car racing game. The code is available at www.envymycarbook.com







Puts computer graphics theory into practice by developing an interactive video game
Enables students to experiment with the concepts in a practical setting
Uses WebGL for code examples
Requires knowledge of general programming and basic notions of HTML and JavaScript
Provides the software and other materials on the book's website


Software development does not require installation of IDEs or libraries, only a text editor.
