Lecture 5 Getting Started with OpenGL A Simple Reflection Model 1 1

2 What is OpenGL? OpenGL provides a set of routines for advanced 3D graphics derived from Silicon Graphics GL acknowledged industry standard, even on PCs (OpenGL graphics cards available) integrates 3D drawing into X (and other window systems such as Windows NT) draws simple primitives (points, lines, polygons) but NOT complex primitives such as spheres provides control over transformations, lighting, etc 4 4

3 Geometric Primitives Defined by a group of vertices - for example to draw a triangle: glBegin (GL_POLYGON); glVertex3i (0, 0, 0); glVertex3i (0, 1, 0); glVertex3i (1, 0, 1); glEnd(); See Chapter 2 of the OpenGL Programming Guide 5 5

4 Viewing OpenGL maintains two matrix transformation modes
MODELVIEW to specify modelling transformations, and transformations to align camera PROJECTION to specify the type of projection (parallel or perspective) and clipping planes See Chapter 3 of OpenGL Programming Guide 6 6

5 OpenGL Utility Library (GLU)
Useful set of higher level utility routines to make some tasks easier written in terms of OpenGL and provided with the OpenGL implementation for example, gluLookAt() is a way of specifying the viewing transformation See Appendix C of OpenGL Programming Guide 7 7

6 OpenGL Utility Toolkit (GLUT)
Set of routines to provide an interface to the underlying windowing system - plus many useful high-level primitives (even a teapot - glutSolidTeapot()!) Improved version of the ‘aux’ library described in Appendix E of the Guide Allows you to write ‘event driven’ applications you specify call back functions which are executed when an event (eg window resize) occurs 8 8

9 What is a Reflection Model?
A reflection model (also called lighting or illumination model) describes the interaction between light and a surface, in terms of: surface properties nature of incident light Computer graphics uses a simplification of accurate physical models objective is to mimic reality to an acceptable degree 11 11

10 Phong Reflection Model
The most common reflection model in computer graphics is due to Bui-Tuong Phong - in 1975 Has proved an acceptable compromise between simplicity and accuracy Largely empirical 12 12

11 Diffuse Reflection and Specular Reflection - Phong Approach
white light specular reflection (white) Some light reflected directly from surface. Other light passes into material. Particles of pigment absorb certain wavelengths from the incident light, but also scatter the light through multiple reflections - some light emerges back through surface as diffuse reflection. diffuse reflection (yellow) yellow pigment particles microscopic view 13 13

12 Ambient Reflection In addition to diffuse and specular reflection, a scene will also include ambient reflection This is caused by light falling on an object after reflection off other surfaces eg in a room with a light above a table, the floor below the table will not be totally black, despite having no direct illumination - this is reflection of ambient light 14 14

13 Reflection Model - Ambient Light
hemisphere of ambient light surface P Ia = Intensity of ambient light Ka = Ambient-reflection coefficient I = Reflected intensity = wavelength of light I ( )= Ka ( )Ia() 15 15

14 Reflection Model - Diffuse Reflection
light source light source P P Light reflected equally in all directions - intensity dependent on angle  between light source and surface normal Lambert’s cosine law: I = I* cos  where I* is intensity of light source light source N L surface 16 16

15 Reflection Model - Diffuse Reflection
light source N L surface Light reflected equally in all directions, with intensity depending on angle  between light and surface normal: I* = Intensity of light source N = Surface normal L = Direction of light source Kd = Diffuse-reflection coefficient I = Reflected intensity I = Kd ( cos ) I* 17 17

16 Reflection Model - Diffuse Reflection
light source The angle between two vectors is given by their dot product: cos  = L . N (assume L, N are unit length) The coefficient Kd depends on the wavelength of the incoming light N L surface I (  ) = Kd() ( L . N ) I*() 18 18

17 Reflection Model - Specular Reflection
light source R P In perfect specular reflection, light is only reflected along the unique direction symmetric to the incoming light 19 19

18 Reflection Model - Specular Reflection
light source R P In practice, light is reflected within a small angle of the perfect reflection direction - the intensity of the reflection tails off at the outside of the cone. This gives a narrow highlight for shiny surfaces, and a broad highlight for dull surfaces. 20 20

19 Reflection Model - Specular Reflection
Thus we want to model intensity, I, as a function of angle between viewer and R, say , like this: I with a sharper peak for shinier surfaces, and broader peak for dull surfaces.

20 Reflection Model - Specular Reflection
Phong realised this effect can be modelled by: (cos  )n with a sharper peak for larger n I n=1 n=10

21 Reflection Model - Specular Reflection
light source N R eye L V surface Intensity depends on angle between eye and reflected light ray: I* = Intensity of light source V = View direction R = Direction of perfect reflected light Ks = Specular-reflection coefficient I = Reflected intensity I = Ks( cos )n I* n varies with material large n : shiny small n : dull 21 23

22 Reflection Model - Specular Reflection
light source N R eye L V surface Using cos = R . V (R, V unit vectors), we have: I () = Ks ( R . V )n I()* Note: Ks does not depend on the wavelength  - hence colour of highlight is same as source 22 24

23 Ambient, Diffuse and Specular
Reflection Model - Ambient, Diffuse and Specular light source N R eye L V surface I() = Ka()Ia() + ( Kd()( L . N ) + Ks( R . V )n ) I*() 23 25

24 Reflection Model - Effect of Distance
light source d surface The intensity of light reaching a surface decreases with distance - so we use typically: I* K1, K2, K3 constant - often K2=1, K3=0 K1 + K2*d + K3*d2 24 26

25 Final Reflection Model
light source N R eye L V d surface I() = Ka()Ia() + ( Kd()( L . N ) + Ks( R . V )n ) I*() K1 + K2*d + K3*d2 This needs to be applied for every light source in the scene 27

26 Phong Model in Practice
In practice, some simplifications are made to the model for sake of efficiency For example, ambient light is sometimes assumed to be a constant Other simplifications are: lights at infinity simple colour model 28

27 Practicalities - Effect of Distance
There are advantages in assuming light source and viewer are at infinity L and V are then fixed for whole scene and calculations become simpler Lights at infinity are called directional lights Lights at a specified position are called positional, or point, lights 27 29

28 Practicalities - Calculating R
R + L = 2 ( N.L ) N hence R = 2 ( N.L )N - L In practice, implementations often compute H = ( L + V ) / 2 and replace (R.V) with (H.N) these are not the same, but compensation is made with choice of n (angle between N and H is half angle between R and V) N R R L N V H R L 28 30

29 Practicalities - Calculating R
As noted, if viewer and light source both sufficiently far from surface, then V and L are constant over scene - and also H Then, for nonplanar surfaces, the calculation: N . H is faster than R . V because R needs to be evaluated at each point in terms of N. 29 31

30 Practicalities - Effect of Colour
The Phong reflection model gives reflection for each wavelength  in visible spectrum In practice, we assume light to be composed as a mixture of RGB (red, green, blue) components - and reflection model is applied for each component Coefficients of ambient-reflection (Ka) and diffuse-reflection (Kd) have separate components for RGB Coefficient of specular-reflection (Ks) is independent of colour 30 32
