Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This book fills a major need for a solid introduction to computer graphics for the reader who is curious about the how and why. Lathrop explains involved concepts in ways that anyone who is computer-savvy can understand." -Mary Whitton Former Chair, SIGGRAPH

"The quality of Lathrop's narrative is extraordinarily good...the illustrations well conceived and well executed...and the style very comfortable to read." -Carl Machover Machover Associates

Based on Olin Lathrop's popular national seminars, this lavishly illustrated guide demystifies computer graphics for artists, designers, and businesspeople. Writing in a frank, funny, down-to-earth style, Lathrop covers everything from how computer graphics are different from fine art and photographs, to modeling, pixels, and the principles of animation. And he does it without resorting to mind-numbing equations and impenetrable technical jargon.

A quick, painless way to learn everything you need to know about basic computer graphics theory, techniques, and technologies

Over 150 full-color illustrations

Coverage of state-of-the-art graphics technology, including fractals, animation, compositing, and compression
