Why it rocks
HW2 and 3 were the best, and I'm going to show them off below.
HW2 - Screwing up your face:
Take a mesh of B-spline control points, slap on your face, and move the
control points around. You could play with this for days afterwards.
Cool Figure 1: Control points on left, result on right
Play with the control points, and you could turn yourself into The Rock.
Cool Figure 2: The Rock
If you've WAAAAAAY too much time in your hands (which I didn't) or you
just like to pretend you do (which I do), then you could make this:
Cool Figure 3: Monkey on left and goblin on right
HW3 - Making a movie using BMRT:
BMRT = Blue Moon Rendering Tools, which implements Pixar's Renderman interface.
It does much more accurate lighting than OpenGL, but does not run in realtime.
You can download my 70-frame movie in either
OK quality (approx. 483KB)
good quality (approx. 1MB).
