SIGGRAPH Asia 2012 starts tomorrow in Singapore. The above video teases some of the astounding graphics accomplishments that will be presented at the conference.
Amazing. The carve by numbers blew my hat off.
…wherein I learned that I am not very smart after all.
Try reading SIGGRAPH papers from 1990 or earlier.. 20 year old tech still makes me feel dumb.
This new stuff is basically magic as far as I can tell.
I hear ya. Although I knew I was never that smart to start with. I’ve worked with some of the early developers of graphics programs (Evans and Sutherland) as well as some people who were doing some of the very first work getting light reflections off of objects. Lots of math involved. I did love one of the terms I learned, “Voxels”
I have an simple image of a teapot that took a Cray Supercomputer to create back in 1987.
That last bit… is that lenslok?
