    Fundamental Issues of Visual Perception for Effective Image Generation

Course Organizer(s):



    This introduction to visual perception and its applications in computer graphics surveyed the fundamental findings of how we perceive light, color, pattern, motion, texture, shape, and depth, and focused on how these results can be applied in real computer graphics applications, including scientific and information visualization, volume rendering, and realistic image synthesis. The course was of interest to a wide range of graphics researchers and practitioners who want to understand how to create images that can be effectively interpreted by the human visual system.
