商品描述

If I were still teaching introductory computer graphics, I would not hesitate to use this textbook as it has just the right amount of coverage of the topic for a semester course and is presented in a highly appealing manner to engage the reader.

- Gary Bertoline, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Computer Graphics Technology, Purdue University, USA

Graphics-based 3D modeling and animation are relevant not only in the motion picture and video game industry, but also in many other disciplines including creative arts, engineering, architecture, education, medicine, etc. Understanding the basics of 3D modeling, and animation requires understanding some basic concepts in physics and math. While some books assume readers' prior knowledge of these concepts, 3D Modeling & Animation: A Primer explains these important concepts in a visually engaging manner. This book is not just for university students, but for anyone with an interest in computer graphics modeling and animation. Using a Software-Agnostic approach, this book focuses on modeling and animation concepts spanning across multiple software platforms. Employing a balanced approach that is neither too technical nor too artistic, this book instills the need for creativity and visual composition in animation.

KEY FEATURES:

- Uses a simple, clear, and concise approach to explain the basics of modeling and animation

- Two hundred plus vibrant images to easily understand and appreciate complex concepts

- Review questions at chapter ends to help readers better review the content
