Objectives • Understand how transformations work in 2D and 3D • Understand the concept of homogenous coordinate system • Understand scene graphs and hierarchical composition of transformations • Get familiar with transformations in OpenGL and DirectX

Transformations • Transformations change 2D or 3D points and vectors, or change coordinate systems. • An object transformation alters the coordinates of each point on the object according to the same rule, leaving the underlying coordinate system fixed. • A coordinate transformation defines a new coordinate system in terms of the old one, then represents all of the object’s points in this new system. • Object transformations are easier to understand, so we will do them first.

Transformations (2) • A (2D or 3D) transformation T( ) alters each point P into a new point Q using a specific formula or algorithm: Q= T(P).

Transformations (3) • An arbitrary point P in the plane is mapped to Q. • Q is the image of P under the mapping T. • We transform an object by transforming each of its points, using the same function T() for each point. • The image of line L under T, for instance, consists of the images of all the individual points of L.

Transformations (4) • Most mappings of interest are continuous, so the image of a straight line is still a connected curve of some shape, although it’s not necessarily a straight line. • Affine transformations, however, do preserve lines: the image under T of a straight line is also a straight line.

Geometric Effects of Affine Transformations • Combinations of four elementary transformations: (a) a translation, (b) a scaling, (c) a rotation, and (d) a shear (all shown below).

Transformations • Translation. • P=T + P • Scale • P=S P • Rotation • P=R P • Shear • P=H P • We would like all transformations to be multiplications so we can concatenate them express points in homogenous coordinates.

Homogeneous coordinates • Add an extra coordinate, W, to a point. • P(x,y,W). • Two sets of homogeneous coordinates represent the same point if they are a multiple of each other. • (2,5,3) and (4,10,6) represent the same point. • At least one component must be non-zero (0,0,0) is not allowed. • If W 0 , divide by it to get Cartesian coordinates of point (x/W,y/W,1). • If W=0, point is said to be at infinity. • P(x,y,0) can be interpreted as the vector v(x, y) • Both points and vectors are represented by the same set of underlying objects

W P W=1 plane X Y Homogeneous coordinates • If we represent (x,y,W) in 3-space, all triples representing the same point describe a line passing through the origin. • If we homogenize the point, we get a point of form (x,y,1) • homogenised points form a plane at W=1.

Concatenation • We perform 2 translations on the same point:

Concatenation. Matrix product is variously referred to as compounding, concatenation, or composition. This single matrix is called the Coordinate Transformation Matrix or CTM.

Composition of Transformations • Suppose we want to rotate around an arbitrary point P • Idea: Compose simple transformations 1. Translate P to origin 2. Rotate around origin 3. Translate origin back to P The order is very important!

y Note: Convenient to think of display as Being left-handed !! ( z into the screen ) x z (out of page) 3D Transformations • Use homogeneous coordinates, just as in 2D case. • Transformations are now 4x4 matrices. • We will use a right-handed (world) coordinate system - ( z out of page ).

More on Homogeneous Coordinates • To: if the object is a vector, add a 0 as the 4th coordinate; if it is a point, add a 1. • From: • If the 4th coordinate is zero, then simply remove it. • If it is not, then divide the other coordinate by it and remove it. • OpenGL uses 4D homogeneous coordinates for all its vertices. • If you send it a 3-tuple in the form (x, y, z), it converts it immediately to (x, y, z, 1). • If you send it a 2D point (x, y), it first appends a 0 for the z-component and then a 1, to form (x, y, 0, 1). • All computations are done within OpenGL in 4D homogeneous coordinates.

Combinations • Linear combinations of vectors and points: • The difference of 2 points is a vector: the fourth component is 1 – 1 = 0 • The sum of a point and a vector is a point: the fourth component is 1 + 0 = 1 • The sum of 2 vectors is a vector: 0 + 0 = 0 • A vector multiplied by a scalar is still a vector • Linear combinations of vectors are vectors

Translation in 3D Simple extension to the 3D case: • In OpenGL: • glMatrixMode(GL_ModelView); • glTranslatef(dx, dy, dz); • In DirectX: • device.Transform.World = Matrix.Translation(dx, dy, dz)

Scale in 3D Simple extension to the 3D case: • In OpenGL: • glMatrixMode(GL_ModelView); • glScalef(Sx, Sy, Sz); • In DirectX: • device.Transform.World = Matrix.Scaling(Sx, Sy, Sz)

Rotation in 3D • Need to specify which axis the rotation is about. • z-axis rotation is the same as the 2D case. • In OpenGL: • glMatrixMode(GL_ModelView); • glRotatef(theta, 0.0f, 0.0f, 1.0f); • In DirectX: • device.Transform.World = Matrix.RotationZ(theta)

Rotation in 3D • For rotation about the x and y axes: • In OpenGL: • glMatrixMode(GL_ModelView); • glRotatef(theta, 1.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f); • //gRotatef(theta,0.0f,1.0f,0.0f) (about y) • In DirectX: • device.Transform.World = Matrix.RotationZ(theta); • //Matrix.RotationY(theta) (about y)

Transformations of coordinate systems • Alternate view: when we apply a transformation, we’re not changing the coordinates of a point within a coordinate system. Instead, we’re changing the coordinate system itself • All the transformations are performed relative to the current coordinate frame origin and axes; OpenGL post-multiplies each new transformation matrix

M1 M2 C1 C2 C3 (a3,b3) C3 a3 b3 C1 C2 M2 M1 Successive Transformations Given P (a3,b3) in C3 What is P’s coordinates in C1? • Get P’s coordinates in C2 • P_c2 = M2 x P • Get P_c2’s coordinates in C1 • P_c1 = M1 x P_c2 • P_c1 = M1 x M2 x P the answer!!

Successive Transformations (2) • The sequence translate 1.5 0 0cube translate 8.5 0 0cubewill draw two cubes with x centres 1.5 and 10.0 respectively. • We could create the same image with the sequence save state translate 1.5 0 0cube restore state save state translate 10.0 0 0cube restore state • Here both cubes have an absolute translation and the order in which the two cubes are drawn does not matter.

Hierarchical composition using Push and Pop • glPushMatrix(); • Save the state. • Push a copy of the CTM onto the stack. • The CTM itself is unchanged. • glPopMatrix(); • Restore the state, as it was at the last Push. • Overwrite the CTM with the matrix at the top of the stack. • glLoadIdentity(); • Overwrite the CTM with the identity matrix.
