Location: Telecom ParisTech, 46 rue Barrault, 75013 Paris.
Period: fall, each friday, 8h30-12h45 (see the program below for details).
This course covers several advanced areas of 3D computer graphics, with particular emphasis on geometric modeling with 3D surface meshes, realistic image synthesis, real-time rendering (e.g., video games) and special effects. During the semester, the students deepen and implement a research article, discuss it during a seminar (first evaluation) and present the result of their implementation, possibly with evolutions or improvements compared to the original article, at the end of the semester (second evaluation).
The course is evaluated with a project, conducted by each student during the semester. This project consists in implementing, in the form of a software prototype, a research article related to one of the themes of the course. This work is the subject of two presentations evaluated during the semester:
the seminar (intermediate defense), on the scientific study of the method and the demonstration of a first prototype embryo (10-minute presentation, PDF or powerpoint),
the final defense on the final prototype (10 minutes presentation + demo).
The rules are as follows:
although it is recommended to perform the implementation in C or C ++, the choice of language remains free
the program presented above on this page indicate the dates and place of of the evaluation("Seminar" and "Final projects presentations")
all students must participate in the entire session at each assessment
each student must choose a different subject
for some topics, it is wise to implement plugins/extensions for existing software (Mitsuba, Blender, etc) or to use existing libraries (embree, tetgen, etc.)
light graphics user interfaces (imgui, nanogui) or complete graphics environment (Qt) may be used.
At the end of the project, the source code of the prototype (with a binary windows if necessary), presentation slides and a mini-report (2 to 5 pages, describing the work done, the features of the prototype and the way to use it) must be delivered by email to this address maximum 3 days after the defense. The email must have the subject "[IG3DA][Project Submission] LAST NAME FIRST NAME" and provide a link to a zip archive containing these different elements.
