    Non-Photorealistic Rendering

Course Organizer(s):



    This course provided a working knowledge of techniques for non-photorealistic rendering (NPR). NPR may offer a more effective means of communication than photorealism, and for many applications provides a more natural form of visual expression. From the artist’s perspective, the course covered approaches that support the effects of natural media, such as pencil, oil painting, or watercolor that are derived from a range of 2D and 3D algorithms.

    Topics included details of a range of techniques for generating NPR imagery, including pen and ink and sketchy styles, using both interactive and off-line approaches.
