One of the first interactive video games to feature recognizable, interactive graphics — Tennis for Two — was created for an oscilloscope by William Higinbotham to entertain visitors in at Brookhaven National Laboratory and simulated a tennis match. In , Douglas T.

Ross innovated again while working at MIT on transforming mathematic statements into computer generated 3D machine tool vectors by taking the opportunity to create a display scope image of a Disney cartoon character. This began the decades-long transformation of the southern San Francisco Bay Area into the world's leading computer technology hub - now known as Silicon Valley.

The field of computer graphics developed with the emergence of computer graphics hardware.

Further advances in computing led to greater advancements in interactive computer graphics. The TX-2 integrated a number of new man-machine interfaces. A light pen could be used to draw sketches on the computer using Ivan Sutherland 's revolutionary Sketchpad software.

The light pen itself had a small photoelectric cell in its tip. This cell emitted an electronic pulse whenever it was placed in front of a computer screen and the screen's electron gun fired directly at it.

CSCI 480 Computer Graphics, Spring 2013

By simply timing the electronic pulse with the current location of the electron gun, it was easy to pinpoint exactly where the pen was on the screen at any given moment.

Once that was determined, the computer could then draw a cursor at that location. Sutherland seemed to find the perfect solution for many of the graphics problems he faced. Even today, many standards of computer graphics interfaces got their start with this early Sketchpad program. One example of this is in drawing constraints. If one wants to draw a square for example, they do not have to worry about drawing four lines perfectly to form the edges of the box.

One can simply specify that they want to draw a box, and then specify the location and size of the box. The software will then construct a perfect box, with the right dimensions and at the right location. Another example is that Sutherland's software modeled objects - not just a picture of objects.

In other words, with a model of a car, one could change the size of the tires without affecting the rest of the car. It could stretch the body of car without deforming the tires. The sales force picked up on this quickly enough and when installing new units, would run the "world's first video game" for their new customers. Higginbotham's Tennis For Two had beaten Spacewar by almost three years; but it was almost unknown outside of a research or academic setting.

Zajac, a scientist at Bell Telephone Laboratory BTL , created a film called "Simulation of a two-giro gravity attitude control system" in He created the animation on an IBM mainframe computer. Sinden created a film called Force, Mass and Motion illustrating Newton's laws of motion in operation. Around the same time, other scientists were creating computer graphics to illustrate their research.

Boeing Aircraft created a film called Vibration of an Aircraft. These curves would form the foundation for much curve-modeling work in the field, as curves - unlike polygons - are mathematically complex entities to draw and model well. Pong arcade version It was not long before major corporations started taking an interest in computer graphics. TRW , Lockheed-Georgia , General Electric and Sperry Rand are among the many companies that were getting started in computer graphics by the mids.

IBM was quick to respond to this interest by releasing the IBM graphics terminal, the first commercially available graphics computer. Ralph Baer , a supervising engineer at Sanders Associates , came up with a home video game in that was later licensed to Magnavox and called the Odyssey.

While very simplistic, and requiring fairly inexpensive electronic parts, it allowed the player to move points of light around on a screen. It was the first consumer computer graphics product. David C. Evans was director of engineering at Bendix Corporation 's computer division from to , after which he worked for the next five years as a visiting professor at Berkeley. There he continued his interest in computers and how they interfaced with people.

In , the University of Utah recruited Evans to form a computer science program, and computer graphics quickly became his primary interest. This new department would become the world's primary research center for computer graphics. Called the Sword of Damocles because of the hardware required for support, it displayed two separate wireframe images, one for each eye.

In Sutherland was recruited by Evans to join the computer science program at the University of Utah - a development which would turn that department into one of the most important research centers in graphics for nearly a decade thereafter, eventually producing some of the most important pioneers in the field.

At Utah, Sutherland and Evans were highly sought after consultants by large companies, but they were frustrated at the lack of graphics hardware available at the time so they started formulating a plan to start their own company. In , Arthur Appel described the first algorithm for what would eventually become known as ray casting - a basis point for almost all of modern 3D graphics , as well as the later pursuit of photorealism in graphics.

An astonishing number of the breakthroughs in the field in this decade - particularly many important early breakthroughs in the transformation of graphics from utilitarian to realistic - occurred at the University of Utah in the s, which had hired Ivan Sutherland.

Sutherland was paired with David C. Evans to teach an advanced computer graphics class, which contributed a great deal of founding research to the field and taught several students who would grow to found several of the industry's most important companies - namely Pixar , Silicon Graphics , and Adobe Systems.

One of these students was Edwin Catmull. Catmull had just come from The Boeing Company and had been working on his degree in physics. Growing up on Disney , Catmull loved animation yet quickly discovered that he did not have the talent for drawing. Now Catmull along with many others saw computers as the natural progression of animation and they wanted to be part of the revolution.

The first animation that Catmull saw was his own. He created an animation of his hand opening and closing.

He also pioneered texture mapping to paint textures on three-dimensional models in , now considered one of the fundamental techniques in 3D modeling. It became one of his goals to produce a feature-length motion picture using computer graphics - a goal he would achieve two decades later after his founding role in Pixar. In the same class, Fred Parke created an animation of his wife's face.

As the UU computer graphics laboratory was attracting people from all over, John Warnock was another of those early pioneers; he would later found Adobe Systems and create a revolution in the publishing world with his PostScript page description language, and Adobe would go on later to create the industry standard photo editing software in Adobe Photoshop and a prominent movie industry special effects program in Adobe After Effects.

Tom Stockham led the image processing group at UU which worked closely with the computer graphics lab. James Clark was also there; he would later found Silicon Graphics. A major advance in 3D computer graphics was created at UU by these early pioneers - hidden surface determination.

In order to draw a representation of a 3D object on the screen, the computer must determine which surfaces are "behind" the object from the viewer's perspective, and thus should be "hidden" when the computer creates or renders the image.

The specifications were published in , and it became a foundation for many future developments in the field. He created the animation on an IBM mainframe computer. Sinden created a film called Force, Mass and Motion illustrating Newton's laws of motion in operation.

The specifications were published in , and it became a foundation for many future developments in the field. Also in the s, Henri Gouraud , Jim Blinn and Bui Tuong Phong contributed to the foundations of shading in CGI via the development of the Gouraud shading and Blinn-Phong shading models, allowing graphics to move beyond a "flat" look to a look more accurately portraying depth.

Jim Blinn also innovated further in by introducing bump mapping , a technique for simulating uneven surfaces, and the predecessor to many more advanced kinds of mapping used today. The modern videogame arcade as is known today was birthed in the s, with the first arcade games using real-time 2D sprite graphics. Pong in was one of the first hit arcade cabinet games.

Speed Race in featured sprites moving along a vertically scrolling road. Gun Fight in featured human-looking sprite character graphics, while Space Invaders in featured a large number of sprites on screen; both used an Intel microprocessor and Fujitsu MB video shifter to accelerate the drawing of sprite graphics. The s began to see the modernization and commercialization of computer graphics.

As the home computer proliferated, a subject which had previously been an academics-only discipline was adopted by a much larger audience, and the number of computer graphics developers increased significantly.

In the early s, the availability of bit-slice and bit microprocessors started to revolutionize high-resolution computer graphics terminals which now increasingly became intelligent, semi-standalone and standalone workstations.

Graphics and application processing were increasingly migrated to the intelligence in the workstation, rather than continuing to rely on central mainframe and mini-computers. Typical of the early move to high-resolution computer graphics intelligent workstations for the computer-aided engineering market were the Orca , and workstations, developed by Orcatech of Ottawa, a spin-off from Bell-Northern Research , and led by David Pearson , an early workstation pioneer.

It was targeted squarely at the sophisticated end of the design engineering sector. Artists and graphic designers began to see the personal computer, particularly the Commodore Amiga and Macintosh , as a serious design tool, one that could save time and draw more accurately than other methods.

The Macintosh remains a highly popular tool for computer graphics among graphic design studios and businesses. Modern computers, dating from the s, often use graphical user interfaces GUI to present data and information with symbols, icons and pictures, rather than text. Graphics are one of the five key elements of multimedia technology. According to the Information Processing Society of Japan: "The core of 3D image rendering is calculating the luminance of each pixel making up a rendered surface from the given viewpoint, light source , and object position.

The LINKS-1 system was developed to realize an image rendering methodology in which each pixel could be parallel processed independently using ray tracing. By developing a new software methodology specifically for high-speed image rendering, LINKS-1 was able to rapidly render highly realistic images.

It was used to create the world's first 3D planetarium -like video of the entire heavens that was made completely with computer graphics. The video was presented at the Fujitsu pavilion at the International Exposition in Tsukuba. Important advances in chroma keying "bluescreening", etc. Two other pieces of video would also outlast the era as historically relevant: Dire Straits ' iconic, near-fully-CGI video for their song " Money for Nothing " in , which popularized CGI among music fans of that era, and a scene from Young Sherlock Holmes the same year featuring the first fully CGI character in a feature movie an animated stained-glass knight.

In the late s, SGI computers were used to create some of the first fully computer-generated short films at Pixar , and Silicon Graphics machines were considered a high-water mark for the field during the decade.The field began to see the first rendered graphics that could truly pass as photorealistic to the untrained eye though they could not yet do so with a trained CGI artist and 3D graphics became far more popular in gaming , multimedia , and animation.

The following figures show left, right, top and bottom edge clippings: For various applications—for instance for modelling surfaces—additional properties of polygons are required. Set of polygons are stored for object description. We can have various types of transformations such as translation, scaling up or down, rotation, shearing, etc. The following figure shows all or none character clipping:
