Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Examines current research topics in computer graphics, human computer interaction (including audio), computer vision and visualization.

COURSE DETAILS:

Special Topics Title:   Computational Photography

(Computational Photography) This course is cross-listed with CMPT 469- The aim of this course is to study ways in which samples from the real world (images and video) can be used to generate compelling computer graphics imagery. We will learn how to acquire, represent, and render scenes from digitized photographs. Several popular image-based algorithms will be presented, with an emphasis on using these techniques to build practical systems. This hands-on emphasis will be reflected in the programming assignments, in which students will have the opportunity to acquire their own images of indoor and outdoor scenes and develop the image analysis and synthesis tools needed to render and view the scenes on the computer.

Topics

  • Cameras, Image Formation
  • Image and Video Processing (filtering, anti-aliasing, pyramids)
  • Image Manipulation (warping, morphing, mosaicing, matting, compositing)
  • Data-driven Synthesis
  • Visual Perception
  • High Dynamic Range Imaging and Tone Mapping
  • Image-Based Lighting
  • Image-Based Rendering
  • Non-photorealistic Rendering

Grading

NOTES:

Programming assignments (60%), final project report (30%), and final project presentation (10%).

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
