Advanced Rendering

Provides an in-depth discussion and hands-on experience with technical and qualitative features of computer rendering. Students learn to generate digital images that can mimic the physical world and predict the final appearance of a design.

Class description

Computer visualization is a powerful tool for architects. Visualization has always been the permanent part of the discipline, though it fluctuates in the wide range of 2D drawings, 3D modeling, rendering, animation, walkthrough, and full-scale virtual environments. Advanced rendering tools use computer models to simulate the complex physical processes that occur during the light transport and material reflection/refraction/transmission within a given geometry to generate digital images that can mimic the physical world and predict the final appearance of a design.
