18. Creating and Manipulating Sound to Enhance Computer Graphics II: Applications and Demonstrations

Half Day / Intermediate

Specific applications and demonstrations illustrating the use of sound synthesis to enhance graphics applications. This course presents alternatives to sampling synthesis for those who want to apply more expression in the control of audio. Specific topics include sound in GUI- controlled applications, animations, virtual reality, HTML, and VRML. Source and binary code are available via ftp.

Who Should Attend
Engineers and people interested in sound for long-range development involving virtual environments, VRML, and multimedia.
