3D Mental Vision

A teaching platform for Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality

goals
Goals
  • Improve comprehension of abstract notions of 3D Computer Graphics (CG)
  • Break the limitations of static images and videos
  • Offer interactivity
  • Offer to advanced students a comfortable development framework for their projects
what is mvisio
What is MVisio?
  • A set of interactive compact demonstrators (called modules)
  • A programmer-friendly, pedagogical-oriented 2D/3D graphic engine
mvisio modules
MVisio Modules
  • Modules are small demos allowing students and teachers to dynamically interact with the algorithms and concepts introduced during the class
  • Modules can be directly inserted in PowerPoint presentations or launched separately
  • Modules run virtually on every pc/laptop (for example the ones offered by Poseidon)

MVisio Modules (2)
  • Typically, a module features:
    • a screenshot of the lesson slide
    • an intuitive and user-friendly interface (few buttons, click & drag interaction)
  • Students can practice with modules directly on their notebooks during the lessons

Lesson slide

Click & drag controls

Real-time WYSIWYG display

Simplified interface

PowerPoint-like style

mvisio graphic engine
MVisio Graphic Engine
  • Technically spoken, MVisio is:
    • Built in C++, using OpenGL, OpenGL|ES and SDL (Simple DirectMedia Library) as third-part development tools
    • Just a 150 kb DLL
    • Capable to display a complex textured scene with dynamic lighting and shadows with in just 7 lines of code

MVisio Graphic Engine
  • MVisio used on student projects:
current status
Current Status
  • Modules actually available:
    • Mixing parabola
    • Hermite interpolation
    • Kochanek-Bartels splines
    • Bézier splines
    • Bézier surfaces
    • Camera handling
    • Sweeping techniques
  • The graphic engine is currently used on several on-going student projects
next steps
Next steps
  • Add more modules, mainly on advanced topics like inverse kinematics, skeletal animation, …
  • Bring modules on handheld devices too, more comfortable to use during the lessons
