Why learn advanced rendering?

Hundreds of papers, textbooks and examples of different rendering techniques exist. In this course we explore some of the most widely used and generally applicable, to give students the confidence to create their own versions and gain a deep understanding of GLSL.

Course Information

  • Target audience: Developers wanting to understand and incorporate realistic advanced visuals into their projects, for realism, visualization or artistic effect
  • Pre-requisites: Developers already working with OpenGL, comfortable with the basics of specifying geometry, writing basic shaders and working with image data
  • Duration: 3 Days
