3 Siggraph 2006, 7/31/2006 www.cs.wustl.edu/~cmg Course material I 8:30-10:15 Manifold concepts and terms Descriptive (what it means for an object to be manifold) Constructive (how do I build one?) Concrete, simple examples What makes manifolds useful? Surface modeling using manifolds Building an embedded surface Background needed: Basic math skills Meshes, splines, subdivision surfaces

4 Siggraph 2006, 7/31/2006 www.cs.wustl.edu/~cmg Course material II 10:30-12:15 Applications Image-based rendering Environment maps, BRDFs Animation Surfaces Modeling, fitting Consistent parameterization Multiple parameterization Global parameterization of meshes Texture mapping Background needed: Calculus Familiarity with graphics applications
