#5002977 I want to learn about computer graphics

Posted by J. Evola's Apprentice on 21 November 2012 - 12:57 PM

Personally, I would start with something old, to seek for origins of the field. There are some old books worth reading.
For example:
"Graphics Programming Black Book" by Abrash.
"Graphics Gems" series.
Glassner's book on ray-tracing.
Aforementioned Foley's book.

J.D. Foley, A. van Dam, S.K. Feiner, J.F. Hughes, Computer Graphics - Principles and Practice
P. Shirley, Fundamentals of Computer Graphics
A. Glassner, Principles of Digital Image Synthesis

There are many ways: eclipse, code::blocks, visual studio express, just vim or emacs.


#4998396 beginning C++ game programming

patisake: "beginning game programming" books are generally crap. Learn C++ from Stroustrup's book.


#4998392 Which language should i choose?

Posted by J. Evola's Apprentice on 07 November 2012 - 07:55 AM

Max_spectra: it depends on what kind of games you want to do. AAA titles are generally written in C++ (C and assembler in good, old days), so it has to be best language for programming spectacular games.


#4998369 So I've learned C...

Prefantastic: make a turn-based, multiplayer opengl game.

Learn more about algorithms and data structures theory. (Cormen, Skiena, Sedgewick)


#4992820 What language does what?

If I were you, I would not bother with languages like Python, Ruby, Java, C#, because programs written in them are slow as hell.


i cant' say much about Phyton, Ruby and Java.. but if your C# programs are "slow as hell" (or even slow), you are doing it wrong.

All VMs are slow, .NET is not an exception.

If I were you, I would not bother with languages like Python, Ruby, Java, C#, because programs written in them are slow as hell.
Instead, I would recommend C, C++, Ada or - which I think is the best option - D.
