- Inherently more complex than 2D case.
- Extra dimension to deal with
- Most display devices are only 2D

- Need to use a projectionto transform 3D object or scene to 2D display device.
- Need to clip against a 3D view volume.
- Six planes.

Graphics

- Viewing Coordinates system, [xv, yv, zv], describes 3D objects with respect to a viewer.
- A viewing plane (projection plane) is set up perpendicular to zv and aligned with (xv,yv).
- In order to set a viewing plane we have to specify:

- P=(Px,Py,Pz) is a point where a camera is located.
- L - is a point to look-at.
- V - is the view up vector, whose projection onto the view-plane is directed up.

Graphics

- After objects were projected onto the viewing plane, an image is taken from a Viewing Window.
- A viewing window can be placed anywhere on the view plane.
- In general the view window is aligned with the viewing coordinates and is defined by its extreme points: (l,b) and (r,t)

- Given the specification of the viewing window, we can set up a Viewing Volume.
- Only objects inside the viewing volume will appear in the display, the rest are clipped.

Graphics

- In order to limit the infinite viewing volume we define two additional planes: Near Plane and Far Plane.
- Only objects in the bounded viewing volume will appear.
- The near and far planes are parallel to the viewing plane and specified by znear and zfar.
- A limited viewing volume is defined:
- For orthographic: a rectangular parallelpiped.
- For oblique: an oblique parallelpiped.
- For perspective: a frustum.

Graphics

- Transforms points in a coordinate system of dimension n into points in one of less than n (ie 3D to 2D)
- The projection is defined by straight lines called projectors.
- Projectors emanate from a centre of projection, pass through every point in the object and intersect a projection surface to form the 2D projection.

Graphics

- In graphics we are generally only interested in planar projections – where the projection surface is a plane.
- Most cameras employ a planar film plane.
We will only deal with geometric projections – the projectors are straight lines.

- Most cameras employ a planar film plane.
- Whether rays coming form object converges to COP or not

Graphics

- Henceforth refer to planar geometric projections as just: projections.
- Two classes of projections :
- Perspective.
- Parallel.

Graphics

- Viewing 3D objects on a 2D display requires a mapping from 3D to 2D.
- Projectors are lines from the center of projection through each point in the object.
- A projection is formed by the intersection of the projectors with a viewing plane.

Projectors

Graphics

- Center of projection at infinity results with a parallel projection.( projection lines are parallel)
- A center of projection at a finite distance results with a perspective projection. (projection lines converges to COP)

Graphics

- A parallel projection preserves relative proportions of objects, but does not give realistic appearance (commonly used in engineering drawing).
- A perspective projection produces realistic appearance, but does not preserve relative proportions.

Parallel line intersect perpendicularly to projection plane-Orthographic Projection

When parallel line intersect plane at some angle not perpendicular –Oblique

Graphics

- When parallel line perpendicularly intersect and View plane is parallel to principal plane (perpendicular to axies ) of object space-Multi view projection (shows one face of object-top, bottom, left, right, front, rear) it includes 2 dimensions(Lxb, bxh, hXL)
- When parallel line perpendicularly intersect and View plane is not parallel to principal Plane( not perpendicular to principal axies) of object space-Axonometric projection (isometric, diametric, trimetric) it includes 3 dimensions(Lxbxh) projectors makes equal angel with all three principal axies –isometric
- Multi view and orthographic combination provide 3 faces can be seen TFRi, BLRe

Graphics

- In oblique projection only the face of object is parallel to view plane are shown, their shape, size, length, angle are preserved for these faces only, phases not parallel discarded. In oblique projection Line which is perpendicular to plane is shorter in length of actual line(projection rays )change in length of projected line is –foreshortening factor f
- When f=0 projection is orthographic (cot 90=0) angle between projector and plane is 90
- When f=1 then oblique projection is Cavalier projection(cot45=1) angle between projector and plane is 45
- When f=1/2 then oblique projection is cabinet projection or break front or cupboard (cot63.435=1/2) angle is 63.435

Graphics

- Specified by a direction to the centre of projection, rather than a point.
- Centre of projection at infinity.

- Orthographic
- The normal to the projection plane is the same as the direction to the centre of projection.

- Oblique
- Directions are different.

Orthographic Projection onto a plane at z = 0.

xp = x , yp = y , z = 0.

Graphics

- Projection plane not parallel to principal Plane (not perpendicular to principal axis) normal of plane makes various angle axies
- Show several faces of the object at once
- Foreshortening is uniform rather than being related to distance(shortening factor f )
- Parallelism of lines is preserved
- Distances can be measured along each principal axis ( with scale factors )

Graphics

- Most common axonometric projection
- Projection plane normal makes equal angles with each axis.
- i.e normal is (dx,dy,dz), |dx| = |dy|=|dz|

Normal

Graphics

- Projection plane normal differs from the direction of projection.
- Usually the projection plane is parallel to a principal axis.
- Other faces can measure distance, but not angles.
- Parallel rays intersect view plane at angle β

Graphics

- cavalier projection :
- Preserves lengths of lines perpendicular to the viewing plane.
- 3D nature can be captured but shape seems distorted.
- Can display a combination of front, side, and top views.
Cabinet projection:

- lines perpendicular to the viewing plane project at 1/2 of their length.
- A more realistic view than the cavalier projection.
- Can display a combination of front, side, and top views.

- Defined by projection plane and centre of projection.
- Visual effect is termed perspective foreshortening.
- The size of the projection of an object varies inversely with distance from the centre of projection.
- Similar to a camera - Looks realistic !

- Not useful for metric information
- Angles only preserved on faces parallel to the projection plane.
- Distances not preserved

Graphics

Perspective Projections

- A set of lines not parallel to the projection plane converge at a vanishing point.
- point at infinity.
- Homogeneous coordinate is 0 (x,y,0)

Graphics

- Lines parallel to a principal axis converge at an axis vanishing point.
- Categorized according to the number of such points
- Corresponds to the number of axes cut by the projection plane.

Graphics

- There are infinitely many general vanishing points.
- There can be up to three principal vanishing points (axis vanishing points).
- Perspective projections are categorized by the number of principal vanishing points, equal to the number of principal axes intersected by the viewing plane.
- Most commonly used: one-point and two-points perspective.

- In a perspective projection, the center of projection is at a finite distance from the viewing plane.
- The size of a projected object is inversely proportional to its distance from the viewing plane.
- Parallel lines that are not parallel to the viewing plane, converge to a vanishing point.
- A vanishing point is the projection of a point at infinity.

- Mper is singular (|Mper|=0), thus Mper is a many to one mapping.
- Points on the viewing plane (z=0) do not change.
- The homogeneous coordinates of a point at infinity directed to (Ux,Uy,Uz) are (Ux,Uy,Uz,0). Thus, The vanishing point of parallel lines directed to (Ux,Uy,Uz) is at [dUx/Uz, dUy/Uz].
