CS-419 Production Computer Graphics

MP 1



Using whatever programming tools and languages you favour, build a very simple ray tracer. Your program should

Use this program to produce two images that illustrate errors produced by pruning the ray tree at fixed depth no less than two. One should show (about!) the right answer, the second the error that results when one uses such pruning. I am looking for a good illustration, so spend more time thinking about the composition of the scene and little time thinking about efficiency, reading primitives, and the like.


You should do this exercise individually. Images are due 4 Feb. Email them to me at daf@uiuc.edu, with "CS419" in the header
