Description:


    This Film shows shadows from simulated craters on the moon. Craters are defined by a texture map of bump heights and shad- ed by Jim Blinn’s normal perturbation method. Shadows are from a table of angles to the horizon in eight compass directions. This horizon map table is computed from the bump heights. Each frame took 2 1/2 seconds to compute on the Cray XMP.
