Overview

After a synopsis of commercial computer game programming techniques developed over a dozen or so years and a recap of the basics of video modes and graphic file formulas, the author devotes more time to the meatier and more exciting realms of digital picture-making. Animation, realistic color shading methods, special effects and digital video are among the topics discussed. The accompanying CD-ROM features the class library, code for animation programming examples in the text plus several extra programs and an art gallery illustrating what can be accomplished using the class library, including static pictures, animations and real-time video sequences.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
For game developers and animation programmers, this reference briefly recaps the basics of video modes and graphics file formats, but the major attention is devoted to real-time digital picturemaking, with topics that include animation, composition of overlapping screen elements, realistic color shading techniques and special effects, digital video, and 3D transformations and texture mapping. The volume is not about game programming per se, but about the graphics techniques which underlie real-time screen animation on current PCs. The included CD-ROM contains an animation class library, interactive tutorial, and a collection of tools and real-time sample programs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
