Technologie de l'anatomie humaine. Ingénieur en systèmes mécaniques, j'ai toujours été fasciné par l'harmonie du corps humain du point de vue mécanique.

Technologie de l'anatomie humaine

Même les machines les plus perfectionnées qui nous construisont sont à des années-lumière d'approcher en complexité l'anatomie humaine. De plus, le corps a une durée de vie de plus de 100 ans dans certains cas, possède un système d'entretien intégré et une capacité à s'auto-réparer que les robots ne sont pas près de posséder. Cette admiration pour une telle mécanique est en train de se traduire par un dossier étudiant chacune des fonctions corporelles de l'homme d'un point de vue purement technologique.

Initiation à  l'éclairage

J'ai été débutant (enfin, je le suis encore, mais un ptit peu moins .... :) et je sais à quel point ils sous-estiment très largement l'importance de l'éclairage dans une scène ainsi que l'importance des textures d'un modèle ! CG Education. Translucency and Sub-Surface ScatteringBy Neil BlevinsCreated On: Sept 12th 2001 Updated On: June 12th 2006 Translucency is a material phenomenon where light travels through an object's surface rather than simply bouncing off the surface.

CG Education

This is a diffuse phenomena, its specular equivalent would be something like transparency or refraction. Most non-metal surfaces contain a certain degree of translucency, so it was only a matter of time before researchers began looking into how to simulate this phenomenon in CG more effectively. A lot of papers at siggraph this year dealt with the subject, including a paper by PDI about skin in Shrek, Jensen's BSSRDF paper, and a talk by Matt Phaar of Exluna.

Anyways, I've decided to talk a bit about what I learned, as well as take some reference pictures to help understand the phenomenon better. Reflecting Light. Portrait : techniques d'éclairage classiques. Material Properties. Indirect (global) vs. direct illumination. Caustic (optics) Caustics produced by a glass of water Caustics made by the surface of water Concentration of light, especially sunlight, can burn.

Caustic (optics)

The word caustic, in fact, comes from the Greek καυστός, burnt, via the Latin causticus, burning. Caustics. Notice how the light reflected off of the mirror actually creates a new shadow of the vase on the side wall - the shadow within the bounced light is created entirely from blocking bounced caustic photons, independent of any raytraced or depth mapped shadow from the light.


Another effect of the Caustics is that the vase looks better "attached" to the top of the dresser in the version on the right, because of the realistic reflected light bouncing back from the glass to the wood. Jeremy Birn's new book Digital Lighting and Rendering explains much more about lighting, global illumination, and other topics related to the art of rendering.
