CHAN CHI HAY'S
COMPUTER GRAPHICS PAGE
"One may say the sky is small when one looks from the bottom of a well. Actually, the sky is not small, small is what one sees."
This is an old Chinese maxim which applies well to computer graphics; what many people have seen does not describe how computer graphics have been done around the world.
Another Chinese maxim, which follows the first one, is:
"Summer bugs can never tell ice not because there is no ice but they can never see ice."
Just like you cannot tell what SIRDS/SIS looks like if you cannot see them.
* Clip form Knowledge And Travel original in Chinese, translated in English by me.
So let us travel, not surf, computer graphics including surface modeling, ray tracing, single image stereogram, animation, virtual reality and fractal.
|You may like to see my works done by 3D Studio.
||Single Image Stereogram, SIS (Single Image Random Dot Stereogram, SIRDS):
- If you want some software that can help you to put inline animation on your page, download GIFCON.EXE,
the GIF Construction Set that fully utilize and manipulate GIF format including multi-image (with full tag/flag setting), transparent and interlace.
Here are some examples:
You must use Netscape 2.0 to view the inline animated GIFs on the Web or the GIF Construction Set itself.
- GIFCON.EXE was published by Alchemy Mindworks Inc which publish Graphic Workshop for Windows
(a powerful graphic utility that can display and extract frames from animations, read multiple image GIFs and support almost any raster formats).
- If you appreciate Hollywood SFX such as The Terminator, you like morph. You try it yourself.
Get a copy of WinMorph V1.6x and have fun. Or you may find
other morph software at shareware.com.
- How to combine a series of image to animation?
DTA (Dave's TGA Animator) will help combining a series of image to a single FLI/FLC file.
It reads TGA, GIF, IMG (file created by Stephen Coy's Vivid raytracer) and PCX files.
||Virtual Reality - VRML(Virtual Reality Modeling Language):
- VRML Repository
is an impartial network resource for the dissemination of information relating to VRML.
- P a p e r S o f t w a r e,
maker of WebFX VRML software. With WebFX, runs under Windows 3.1x, many cool VRML pages will be open for you.
- VRML Site Directory
WEBFX'S DIRECTORY OF VRML WEB SITES.
- Virtus Corporation.
is the award-winning developer of virtual reality, 3-D modeling, and multimedia products including the Virtus Player, the premier 3-D model publishing utility, and Virtus Voyager, a free VRML browser for the Macintosh (68k and Power Macintosh) and Windows95 (Win3.1 not available).
- Star Wars Rebel VRML Files
and Star Wars Empire VRML Files,
Brian describes his site as "a collection of Star Wars-related VRML worlds, including ships, robots, and scenes from the Star Wars trilogy."
(This is one of many links on Virtus Corporation Home Page. I need to point it out because it is worth to visit even though you don't have any VRML browser.)
* As Knowledge And Travel said, don't be a country boy, you must have some knowledge before you go.
