1.Graphics Basics and Unity



4. Unity • Cross-platform game creation system  devel oped by Unity Technologies, – A game engine  – An integrated development environment (IDE). • Used for developing video games  – web sites, desktop platforms, consoles, and mo bile devices. • Unity Pro is available for a fee • Unity Free has no fee

5. Platforms • BlackBerry • Windows Phone •  Windows • OS X, Linux (mainly Ubuntu) • Android,  • iOS, Unity Web Player (including Facebook),  • Adobe Flash •  PlayStation 3, Wii, etc.

10. Lighting The simulation of light in computer graphics.

11. Texture • Texture mapping is a method for adding d etail, surface texture (a bitmap or raster im age), or color to a computer-generated gra phic or 3D model.

12. Texture • Normal map (or "Dot3 bump mapping“) is a techn ique used for faking the lighting of bumps and de nts

16. Lights • Spot light, point light, directional light • blooming

17. Skyboxes • A skybox is a method of creating backgrounds to make a computer and video games level look bigger than it rea lly is. When a skybox is used, the level is enclosed in a c uboid.

18. Skybox and Skydome A skydome employs the same concept but uses either a sphere or a hemisphere instead of a cube. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skybox_%28video_games%29

19.How are the objects processed in the graphics pipeline?

20. Stages of the graphics pipeline • 3D geometric primitives • Modeling and transformation • Camera transformation • Lighting • Projection transformation • Clipping • Scan conversion or rasterization • Texturing, fragment shading
