Overview

- 3D scene representation
- 3D viewer representation
- Visible surface determination
- Lighting simulation

How is the 3D scene

described in a computer?

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

3D Scene Representation

- Scene is usually approximated by 3D primitives
- Point
- Line segment
- Polygon
- Polyhedron
- Curved surface
- Solid object
- etc.

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

3D Vector

- Specifies a direction and a magnitude
- Represented as the difference between two point positions by three coordinates (Vx, Vy, Vz).
- Magnitude |V| = sqrt( Vx2 + Vy2 + Vz2)
- Has no location

(Vx, Vy, Vz).

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Vector Addition/Subtraction

- Operation u + v, with:
- Identity 0 : v + 0 = v
- Inverse - : v + (-v) = 0
- Addition uses the “parallelogram rule”:

v

u

-v

v

-v

u-v

u

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Vector Space

- Vectors define a vector space
- They support vector addition
- Commutative and associative
- Possess identity and inverse
- They support scalar multiplication
- Associative, distributive
- Possess identity

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Affine Spaces

- Vector spaces lack position and distance
- They have magnitude and direction but no location
- Combine the point and vector primitives
- Permits describing vectors relative to a common location
- A point and three vectors define a 3-D coordinate system
- Point-point subtraction yields a vector

Points + Vectors- Points support these operations
- Point-point subtraction: Q - P = v
- Result is a vector pointing fromPtoQ
- Vector-point addition: P + v = Q
- Result is a new point
- Note that the addition of two points is not defined

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

3D Line Segment

- Use a linear combination of two points
- Parametric representation:
- P = P1 + t (P2 - P1), (0 t 1)

P2

P1

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

3D Ray

- Line segment with one endpoint at infinity
- Parametric representation:
- P = P1 + t V, (0<= t < )

V

P1

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

3D Line

- Line segment with both endpoints at infinity
- Parametric representation:
- P = P1 + t V, (- < t < )

V

P1

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

y

P2 = (x2, y2)

P1 = (x1, y1)

x

3D Line – Slope Intercept- Slope =m
- = rise / run
- Slope = (y - y1) / (x - x1) = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)
- Solve for y:
- y = [(y2 - y1)/(x2 - x1)]x + [-(y2-y1)/(x2 - x1)]x1 + y1
- or: y = mx + b

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Euclidean Spaces

- Q: What is the distance function between points and vectors in affine space?
- A: Dot product
- Euclidean affine space = affine space plus dot product
- Permits the computation of distance and angles

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

θ

u

Dot Product- Thedot productor, more generally, inner productof two vectors is a scalar:

v1 • v2 = x1x2 + y1y2 + z1z2 (in 3D)

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

θ

u

Dot Product- Useful for many purposes
- Computing the length (Euclidean Norm) of a vector:
- length(v) = ||v|| = sqrt(v • v)
- Normalizing a vector, making it unit-length: v = v / ||v||
- Computing the angle between two vectors:
- u • v = |u| |v| cos(θ)
- Checking two vectors for orthogonality
- u • v = 0.0

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

v

u

Dot Product- Projecting one vector onto another
- If v is a unit vector and we have another vector, w
- We can project w perpendicularly onto v
- And the result, u, has length w • v

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Dot Product

- Is commutative
- u • v = v • u
- Is distributive with respect to addition
- u • (v + w) = u • v + u • w

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Cross Product

- The cross product or vector product of two vectors is a vector:
- The cross product of two vectors is orthogonal to both
- Right-hand rule dictates direction of cross product

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Cross Product Right Hand Rule

- See: http://www.phy.syr.edu/courses/video/RightHandRule/index2.html
- Orient your right hand such that your palm is at the beginning of A and your fingers point in the direction of A
- Twist your hand about the A-axis such that B extends perpendicularly from your palm
- As you curl your fingers to make a fist, your thumb will point in the direction of the cross product

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Cross Product Right Hand Rule

- Orient your right hand such that your palm is at the beginning of A and your fingers point in the direction of A
- Twist your hand about the A-axis such that B extends perpendicularly from your palm
- As you curl your fingers to make a fist, your thumb will point in the direction of the cross product

Dr. Muhammed Al-Mulhem

Other helpful formulas

- Length = sqrt (x2 - x1)2 + (y2 - y1)2
- Midpoint, p2, between p1 and p3
- p2 = ((x1 + x3) / 2, (y1 + y3) / 2))
- Two lines are perpendicular if:
- M1 = -1/M2
- cosine of the angle between them is 0
- Dot product = 0

Camera Models

- The most common model is pin-hole camera
- All captured light rays arrive along paths toward focal point without lens distortion (everything is in focus)
- Sensor response proportional to radiance
- Other models consider ...Depth of field, Motion blur, Lens distortion

Rendering: Transformations

- We’ve learned about transformations
- But they are used in three ways:
- Modeling transforms
- Viewing transforms (Move the camera)
- Projection transforms (Change the type of camera)

- Vertices shaded according to lighting model
- Scene vertices in 3-D “view” or “camera” coordinate system
- Exactly those vertices & portions of polygons in view frustum
- 2-D screen coordinates of clipped vertices
