CPSC 591 W2019 Rendering Showcase

Students in CPSC 591 (Rendering) need to complete a final project where they implement a rendering technique of their choice. In Winter 2019, students worked hard and produced some amazing results! Showcased below are some of the projects spanning physically-based, realtime and non-photo realistic rendering (NPR) techniques.

Winning the Compute Canada Visualize This Challenge

Allan Rocha and Julio Daniel Silva worked tirelessly to prepare a submission for the Visualize This challenge organized by Compute Canada's Visualization Team. The visualization design was based on Allan's decal-mapping and layering technique that appeared at SciVis 2016. We won the challenge!

The official announcement is here.

The video below showcases Allan's design.
