3D Lighting and Rendering

Course Code: 3DFX 002

Academic Year: 2020-2021

This course will explore how light behaves and how we can try to recreate it in a 3D environment. Further to this, we will be exploring how to output images that look realistic. To accurately portray a realistic scene, three main themes are explored: lighting, rendering and materials. These three topics are integral to each other and will need to be explored together to fully realize a realistic rendering. The projects in this course are driven by this concept and are meant to show how each play off the other, combining to give a realistic portrayal of mood, atmosphere and time of day.
