The first animation that Catmull saw was his own. He created an animation of his hand opening and closing.

He also pioneered texture mapping to paint textures on three-dimensional models innow considered one of the fundamental techniques in 3D modeling. It became one of his goals to produce a feature-length motion picture using computer graphics ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series a goal he would achieve two decades later after his founding role in Pixar. In the same class, Fred Parke created an animation of his wife's face.


As the UU computer graphics laboratory was attracting people from all over, John Warnock was another of those early pioneers; he would later found Adobe Systems and create a revolution in the publishing world with his PostScript page description language, and Adobe would go on later to create the industry standard photo editing ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series in Adobe Photoshop and a prominent movie industry special effects program in Adobe After Effects. Tom Stockham led the image processing group at UU which worked closely with the computer graphics lab.

James Clark was also there; he would later found Silicon Graphics. A major advance in 3D computer graphics was created at UU by these early pioneers - hidden surface determination.

In order to draw a representation of a 3D object on the screen, the computer must determine which surfaces are "behind" the object from the viewer's perspective, and thus should be "hidden" ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series the computer creates or renders the image. The specifications were published inand it became a foundation for many future developments in the field. Also in the s, Henri GouraudJim Blinn and Bui Tuong Phong contributed to the foundations of shading in CGI via the development of the Gouraud shading and Blinn-Phong shading models, allowing graphics to move beyond a "flat" look to a look more accurately portraying depth. Jim Blinn also innovated further in by introducing bump mappinga technique for simulating uneven surfaces, and the predecessor to many more advanced kinds of mapping used today.

The modern videogame arcade as is known today was birthed in the s, with the first arcade games using real-time 2D sprite graphics. Pong in was one of the first hit arcade cabinet ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series. Speed Race in featured sprites moving along a vertically scrolling road. Gun Fight in featured human-looking sprite character graphics, while Space Invaders in featured a large number of sprites on screen; both used an Intel microprocessor and Fujitsu MB video shifter to accelerate the drawing of sprite graphics.

The s began to see the modernization and commercialization of computer graphics. As the home computer proliferated, a subject which had previously been an academics-only discipline was adopted by a much larger audience, and the number of computer graphics developers increased significantly. In the early s, the availability of bit-slice and bit microprocessors started to revolutionize high-resolution computer graphics terminals which now increasingly became intelligent, semi-standalone and standalone workstations. Graphics and application ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series were increasingly migrated to the intelligence in the workstation, rather than continuing to rely on central mainframe and mini-computers.

Typical of the early move to high-resolution computer graphics intelligent workstations for the computer-aided engineering market were the Orcaand workstations, developed by Orcatech of Ottawa, a spin-off ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series Bell-Northern Researchand led by David Pearsonan early workstation pioneer. It was targeted squarely at the sophisticated end of the design engineering sector. Artists and graphic designers began to see the personal computer, particularly the Commodore Amiga and Macintoshas a serious design tool, one that could save time and draw more accurately than other methods.


The Macintosh remains a highly popular tool for computer graphics among graphic design studios and businesses. Modern computers, dating from the s, often use graphical user interfaces GUI to present data and information with symbols, icons and pictures, rather than text. Graphics are one of the five key elements of multimedia technology. According to the Information Processing Society of Japan: The LINKS-1 system was developed to realize an image rendering methodology in which each pixel could be parallel processed independently using ray tracing.

By developing a new software methodology specifically for high-speed image rendering, LINKS-1 ARTIST Graphics 2000 Series able to rapidly render highly realistic images.

It was used to create the world's first 3D planetarium -like video of the entire heavens that was made completely with computer graphics. The video was presented at the Fujitsu pavilion at the International Exposition in Tsukuba.
