As a relatively new hobbyist I'm finding that there is a lot of ground to cover in this field. This book not only covered digital lighting in depth but also touched on many other aspects of digital art such as color theory, texturing, and compositing.
A must read for anyone interested in 3D rendering. Books on specific software are important, but I wish there were more books like this one that covered the concepts of 3D rendering without focusing on the mechanics of a specific software package. T As a relatively new hobbyist I'm finding that there is a lot of ground to cover in this field.
This book does not contain any "tutorials" but each chapter provides a few exercises to inspire further thought. Oct 20, Brian rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Digital Lighters. Shelves: computer-graphics. If you know this title, you already know it's the Digital Lighter's Bible.
Every page is wonderfully informative, and sports spectacularly full-color image examples to accomany the concepts a big help when discussing color!! Some people are put off by it's lack of platform-specific information, but he's really illustrating concepts, not executions.
I think this books gives you enough of a starting point that you can easily or with a few Google searches find your own methods. If you're thinkin If you know this title, you already know it's the Digital Lighter's Bible.
Good overview of lighting technique in computer graphics. It is good to skim for the professional lighter and very good perusing for the beginner. I usually find books that are too technical impossible to read. This one was not difficult at all while managing to be comprehensive. I fear some of the issues will become a bit dated with time and future editions will have to provide a timeline for certain developments.
I wish some more space would have been devoted to certain aspects like developme Good overview of lighting technique in computer graphics. I wish some more space would have been devoted to certain aspects like developments in rendering beyond Reyes and brute force raytracing. Also, the compositing of life elements into CG scenes which is touched on on the chapter about set data collecting and layers. I imagine future editions will expand on the lighting of grooms, more on subsurface scattering and the many troubles with color- the chapter on linear vs gamma corrected displays will be an eye-opener to many - Overall, a must for those starting on the path of computer lighting and its many challenges.
Oct 25, David rated it really liked it. I bought it used, and it has great general ideas for setting scenes up in 3d software packages, it's platform neutral and more high level. At the moment I'll give it 4 stars, but I'm awfully close to saying 5 stars. May 12, Torgeir Vikane Stemsverk rated it really liked it. Great book about coloring and visualization! If you are doing product visualization there are many chapters that comes in handy.
