Course Description

The course focuses on fundamental algorithms and data structures for real-time rendering. The accompanying lab classes allow students to implement and test a set of real-time rendering algorithms and a project of their own choice.

German version

Die Vorlesung befasst sich mit den grundlegenden Datenstrukturen und Algorithmen für das Real-Time Rendering. Regelmäßige Übungen im LiNt-Pool ergänzen die Vorlesung durch praktische Erfahrung bei der Programmierung echtzeitfähiger Grafik.

    Diese Vorlesung wird englischsprachig angeboten.

    Final project

    • Topics can be selected by yourself or choose one of the proposed topics 
    • Individual work or group work (max 2 students).
    • A short proposal (1-2 pages) that outlines the idea and concept of the final project is recommended.

    Grading

    • Final exam will be an oral exam covering all topics of the course
    • Appointments for oral examination can be made with the computer science secretary (R112, B11)
    • Requirements for admittance to the final exam

      • In the assignment (exercises 1 to 5) a total amount of 190 points can be achieved.

        • The final project is weighted by a factor of 1.5 (= 285 points).
        • The following scheme lists the grades depending on the percentage of the achieved points (assignment + final project = 475 points):
        • 1.0   >=95.0
        • 1.1   [93.5-95.0)
        • 1.2   [92.0-93.5)
        • 1.3   [90.5-92.0)
        • 1.4   [89.0-90.5)
        • 1.5   [87.5-89.0)
        • 1.6   [86.0-87.5)
        • 1.7   [84.5-86.0)
        • 1.8   [83.0-84.5)
        • 1.9   [81.5-83.0)
        • 2.0   [80.0-81.5)
        • 2.1   [78.5-80.0)
        • 2.2   [77.0-78.5)
        • 2.3   [75.5-77.0)
        • 2.4   [74.0-75.5)
        • 2.5   [72.5-74.0)
        • ...
        • 3.0   [65.0-66.5)
        • ...
        • 4.0   [50.0-51.5)
        • Less than 50% is insufficient for an admission to the oral exam.

      • Contributions to the final grade

        • assignments: 20%
        • final project:   30%
        • final exam:     50%
