Using WebGL®, you can create sophisticated interactive 3D graphics inside web browsers, without plug-ins. WebGL makes it possible to build a new generation of 3D web games, user interfaces, and information visualization solutions that will run on any standard web browser, and on PCs, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, or other devices. WebGL Programming Guide will help you get started quickly with interactive WebGL 3D programming, even if you have no prior knowledge of HTML5, JavaScript, 3D graphics, mathematics, or OpenGL. You’ll learn step-by-step, through realistic examples, building your skills as you move from simple to complex solutions for building visually appealing web pages and 3D applications with WebGL. Media, 3D graphics, and WebGL pioneers Dr. Kouichi Matsuda and Dr. Rodger Lea offer easy-to-understand tutorials on key aspects of WebGL, plus 100 downloadable sample programs, each demonstrating a specific WebGL topic. You’ll move from basic techniques such as rendering, animating, and texturing triangles, all the way to advanced techniques such as fogging, shadowing, shader switching, and displaying 3D models generated by Blender or other authoring tools. This book won’t just teach you WebGL best practices, it will give you a library of code to jumpstart your own projects. Coverage includes: • WebGL’s origin, core concepts, features, advantages, and integration with other web standards • How and basic WebGL functions work together to deliver 3D graphics • Shader development with OpenGL ES Shading Language (GLSL ES) • 3D scene drawing: representing user views, controlling space volume, clipping, object creation, and perspective • Achieving greater realism through lighting and hierarchical objects • Advanced techniques: object manipulation, heads-up displays, alpha blending, shader switching, and more • Valuable reference appendixes covering key issues ranging from coordinate systems to matrices and shader loading to web browser settings This is the newest text in the OpenGL Technical Library, Addison-Wesley’s definitive collection of programming guides an reference manuals for OpenGL and its related technologies. The Library enables programmers to gain a practical understanding of OpenGL and the other Khronos application-programming libraries including OpenGL ES and OpenCL. All of the technologies in the OpenGL Technical Library evolve under the auspices of the Khronos Group, the industry consortium guiding the evolution of modern, open-standards media APIs.

Genre: Computers

JavaScript ist eine mächtige, objektorientierte Skriptsprache, deren Code in HTML-Seiten eingebettet und vom Browser interpretiert und ausgeführt wird. Richtig eingesetzt, eignet sie sich aber auch für die Programmierung komplexer Anwendungen und hat im Zusammenhang mit HTML5 noch einmal an Bedeutung gewonnen. Diese Kurzreferenz ist ein Auszug aus der überarbeiteten und ergänzten Neuauflage von JavaScript – Das umfassende Referenzwerk, 6. Auflage, der JavaScript-Bibel schlechthin. JavaScript kurz & gut befasst sich in den ersten neun Kapiteln mit der neuesten Version des Sprachkerns (ECMAScript 5) und behandelt die Syntax der Sprache, Typen, Werte, Variablen, Operatoren und Anweisungen sowie Objekte, Arrays, Funktionen und Klassen. All dies ist nicht nur für die Verwendung von JavaScript in Webbrowsern, sondern auch beim Einsatz von Node auf der Serverseite relevant. In den folgenden fünf Kapiteln geht es um die Host-Umgebung des Webbrowsers. Es wird erklärt, wie Sie clientseitiges JavaScript für die Erstellung dynamischer Webseiten und -applikationen verwenden und mit JavaScript auf die HTML5-APIs zugreifen. Diese Kapitel liefern Informationen zu den wichtigsten Elementen von clientseitigem JavaScript: Fenster, Dokumente, Elemente, Stile, Events, Netzwerke und Speicherung.

ISBN: 9783836679275
Release Date: 2009-09
Genre: Computers

Seit es Computergrafik gibt, wird kontinuierlich versucht die Qualit t der Darstellung bis hin zum absoluten Realismus zu steigern. Die Shader sind dabei ein wichtiges Hilfsmittel um realistischer scheinende Materialien in der Computergrafik zu erzeugen. Shader bieten dem Grafik-Programmierer eine vorher unerreichte Flexibilit t. Die vorher starren Vorgaben der Grafikprozessoren k nnen nun individuell an die eigenen Bed rfnisse angepasst werden. Dieses Buch bietet einen schnellen Einstieg in die Highlevel Shading Sprachen. Anhand von Beispiel-Shadern in der OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL) werden die Grunds tze erkl rt. Verschiedene Ans tze werden erl utert und m gliche Fehlerquellen werden aufgedeckt. Die Einbindung der entwickelten Shader in eigene OpenGL-Anwendungen wird gekl rt.Zus tzlich wird eine Einf hrung in Textur-Erstellung und 3D-Modeling gegeben.

- Die bekannten Design Patterns der Gang of Four im konkreten Einsatz für die Entwicklung von Games - Zahlreiche weitere vom Autor entwickelte Patterns - Sequenzierungs-, Verhaltens-, Entkopplungs- und Optimierungsmuster Für viele Spieleprogrammierer stellt die Finalisierung ihres Spiels die größte Herausforderung dar. Viele Projekte verlaufen im Sande, weil Programmierer der Komplexität des eigenen Codes nicht gewachsen sind. Die im Buch beschriebenen Design Patterns nehmen genau dieses Problem in Angriff. Der Autor blickt auf jahrelange Erfahrung in der Entwicklung von weltweit erfolgreichen Games zurück und stellt erprobte Patterns vor, mit deren Hilfe Sie Ihren Code entwirren und optimieren können. Die Patterns sind in Form unabhängiger Fallbeispiele organisiert, so dass Sie sich nur mit den für Sie relevanten zu befassen brauchen und das Buch auch hervorragend zum Nachschlagen verwenden können. Sie erfahren, wie man eine stabile Game Loop schreibt, wie Spielobjekte mithilfe von Komponenten organisiert werden können und wie man den CPU-Cache nutzt, um die Performance zu verbessern. Außerdem werden Sie sich damit beschäftigen, wie Skript-Engines funktionieren, wie Sie Ihren Code mittels Quadtrees und anderen räumlichen Aufteilungen optimieren und wie sich die klassischen Design Patterns in Spielen einsetzen lassen.

Interactive Computer Graphics with WebGL, Seventh Edition, is suitable for undergraduate students in computer science and engineering, for students in other disciplines who have good programming skills, and for professionals interested in computer animation and graphics using the latest version of WebGL. ¿ Computer animation and graphics are now prevalent in everyday life from the computer screen, to the movie screen, to the smart phone screen. The growing excitement about WebGL applications and their ability to integrate HTML5, inspired the authors to exclusively use WebGL in the Seventh Edition of Interactive Computer Graphics with WebGL.Thisis the only introduction to computer graphics text for undergraduates that fully integrates WebGL and emphasizes application-based programming. The top-down, programming-oriented approach allows for coverage of engaging 3D material early in the course so students immediately begin to create their own 3D graphics. ¿¿ Teaching and Learning Experience This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience–for you and your students. It will help: Engage Students Immediately with 3D Material: A top-down, programming-oriented approach allows for coverage of engaging 3D material early in the course so students immediately begin to create their own graphics. Introduce Computer Graphics Programming with WebGL and JavaScript: WebGL is not only fully shader-based–each application must provide at least a vertex shader and a fragment shader–but also a version that works within the latest web browsers.
