29. High-Dynamic-Range Imaging and Image-Based Lighting


Half-Day, Tuesday, 2 August, 8:30 am - 12:15 pm
Room 515A
Level: Intermediate

New techniques in capturing, representing, processing, and displaying high-dynamic-range images that cover the full range of light in the real world. The techniques enable marked improvements in visual fidelity and photorealism for computer graphics. The course also summarizes applications to photoreal lighting and compositing.

Prerequisites


Familiarity with basic techniques in digital photography, traditional 8-bit image editing, and basic computer graphics modeling and rendering. Also helpful: familiarity with a specific image-editing package or 3D modeling and rendering package.

Intended Audience


Students, researchers, and industrial developers in digital photography, computer graphics rendering, real-time photoreal graphics, and visual effects production (especially rendering and compositing).
