COMPUTER GRAPHICS Computer graphics creates a representation of reality, manipulates it, and displays it visually representation and manipulation of pictorial data by a computer is a sub-field of computer science which studies methods for digitally synthesizing and manipulating visual content
GRAPHICS DESIGN Graphics designis the art of conveying visual concepts from a source through a medium to a human recipient. The source is human brain. The medium is any form of representation the eye can comprehend, one in the category is computer graphics display
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS? Most applied computer science disciplines augment some human capability. Data Processing --> Bookkeeping, Organization Databases --> Memory Numerical Analysis --> Calculation Robotics --> Muscle Simulation --> Modeling, Prediction Cybernetics --> Control, Filtering Visualization --> Pattern extraction What does computer graphics augment?
***COMPUTER GRAPHICS AUGMENTS THE HUMAN IMAGINATION*** It is the tool of choice for helping us imagine things we otherwise could not. Obvious examples: Architecture, Engineering Design, Education, Mathematics, Film Effects
NEED + ADVANTAGES Image Reproducibility Medical Visualization Communication of Abstract Ideas
NEED + ADVANTAGES Evoking the Imagination Animation Compression Communication of Design
NEED OF C.G AS A MEDIUM Computer Graphics is useful not only for augmenting ones own imagination but stimulating the imagination of others. We can use it to codify, transmit, store, and communicate experience and ideas. Computer graphics as a medium is only just emerging. UI - people communicating with computers Explaining complex or abstract concepts to decision makers. We are in the midst of a shift from a literary culture to a visual culture. Decline of print, including the Web. This trend puts computer graphics at center stage.
It shares animate visual quality with Film and TV, but has significant differences Interactive Intelligent More Powerful - Video Games vs. Television Computer Graphics will remake the computers role in our lives. Science fiction authors & movie makers have already figured this out REFERENCE: Jim Kajiya Microsoft Research/Graphics
NEED FOR C.G IN THE CORPORATE WORLD • Professional image• Considered and long-lasting design strategy• Make your company look bigger • Stand out from your competition • More effective
BENEFITS FOR GRAPHICS DESIGNERS Inauguration of good prospects Stable income Application of the widely Highly technical Excellent duplicacity
Rich and varied work Limitations on the work Development of freedom Rich life and love Action Now!
WHAT DOES A GRAPHICS DESIGNER DO? A graphics designer conveys information through visual solutions that promote or enhance a service, product, philosophy or entity. Graphic design is a professional umbrella term for a skill set that can be applied to a wide range of positions.
A good graphic designer has strong interpersonal and marketing skills, in addition to a keen eye and an adept knowledge of electronic media packages. A Graphics Designer creates for: Billboards, Posters, Logos, Advertisements, Brochures, Magazines/book covers, Newspapers/newsletters, Product packaging, Websites or interactive T.V. commercials/graphics, Film and video graphics, Computer graphics and so on…
REALISM IN COMPUTER GRAPHICS Realism in the visual arts is the depiction of subjects as they appear in everyday life, without embellishment or interpretation.
Physical realism - in which the image provides the same visual stimulation as the scene Photo realism - in which the image produces the same visual response as the scene Functional realism - in which the image provides the same visual information as the scene
FUTURE OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS With the latest advances in graphics hardware and software technology, high-quality graphics will shortly be ubiquitous and good enough for many applications. improvements to the existing state of the art & improvements in the speed and cost of the solutions. Computer graphics shortly will be where word processing is today: everyone will use it. design of interiors of the next generation of automobiles Photo-realism to the people!
CONCLUSION Graphics design industry is becoming and integral part of the real time situations. Some strata of society are however unaware of the importance and need of the knowledge of this field of graphics/computer graphics design. With the more computerized form of life, it is important to understand that Graphics design and computer graphics should be inseparable partners, not virtual strangers.
