Linux Resources

Linux cheat-sheet - Linux sheet given out in class.
Linux Survival - online Linux tutorial. Quick-n-easy!
Beginners: Learn Linux
Linux is NOT Windows (Pretty old, but still worth a look)

Handouts/In-Class Examples

  • Computer Graphics Through OpenGL - the textbook web site.
  • Code.zip - code files referenced in textbook.
  • Level of Detail (LOD)
  • Makefile - sample Makefile; add any source code file names to this.
  • helloclass.cpp - first practice program that draws a couple of simple polygons.
  • helloOOP.cpp - even smaller program, similar to helloclass.cpp, but using OOP.
  • circle.cpp - program showing how to draw circles with OpenGL.
  • colorFun.cpp - messin' with RGB.
  • text.cpp - program that shows some text output options. You'll also need tkmap.c. Note that tkmap.c is a C program, but the C++ compiler will work fine. You must modify text.cpp so that tkmap.c will be found.
  • font.c - more text manipulation. This also needs tkmap.c.
  • menu.cpp - teeny program showing the use of an OpenGL pop-up menu.
  • mouse.cpp - how to draw points and polylines with the mouse, v1.
  • mouse2.cpp - how to draw points and polylines with the mouse, v2. The difference is that all of the points/vertices are stored, allowing the window to be redrawn whenever necessary.
  • displayList.cpp - how to draw some polygons using a display list. A display list will be important for some projects.
  • windows.cpp - windows/viewports and "viewing box."
  • perspect1.cpp - an example in the use of perspective, among other things. See the comments within the program that explain the use of glFrustum() and gluLookAt().

Computer Graphics Images

Computer Graphics Resources

  • Pixar - see some clips of cutting edge CG.
  • Pixie - open-source RenderMan renderer for Windows, Linux, and OSX!
  • Brownian motion - an animation of Brownian motion showing molecules in a gas.
  • Fun Fractals - shows images you can create starting with a fractal.
  • Mandelbrot Fractal - Java applet in which one can zoom in/out of a Mandelbrot fractal.
