Additional Information

The ubiquity of computer-generated imagery around us, in movies, advertising or on the Internet is already being taken for granted and what impresses most people is the photorealistic quality of the images. Pictures, as we have often been told, are worth a thousand words and the information transported by an image can take many different forms. Many computer graphics researchers are exploring non-photorealistic rendering techniques as an alternative to realistic rendering. Defined by what it is not, non-photorealistic rendering brings art and science together, concentrating less on the process and more on the communication content of an image. Techniques that have long been used by artists can be applied to computer graphics to emphasize subtle attributes and to omit extraneous information. This book provides an overview of the published research on non-photorealistic rendering in order to categorize and distill the current research into a body of usable techniques. A summary of some of the algorithms as well as pseudo-code for producing some of the images is included.

This book is a brief foray into the field of art based rendering. It shows images from the academic papers of the time and gives a brief overview of the techniques, but does not really demonstrate any significant insight into the methods. Look at a few NPR papers for a better grasp of the material.
This book is a must have for your computer library. If you are interested at all in computer graphics, then this book will show you the other side of photorealistic rendering. From charcoal, water coloring, pencil sketching, to cartooning, there is so much that this book offers. It gives a brief explanation of many of the founding research papers in NPR and cites references to all the papers you will need to go off and implement any of these techniques. Great book....
In Non-Photorealistic Rendering, Bruce and Amy Gooch effectively collaborate to present the computer graphics student with an informative introductory survey of realistic rendering techniques that have long been utilized by artists and which can be applied in computer graphics to emphasize the subtle attributes of images while omitting extraneous visual information. The process of non-photorealistic rendering is fully explained, along with the provision of pseudo-code for some simple methods. The wide range of techniques are illustrated throughout and the text is additionally enhanced with a 32-page color insert. Non-Photorealistic Rendering is an invaluable contribution and a much appreciated addition to the computer graphics reference shelf.
