The third edition of this classic tutorial and reference on procedural texturing and modeling is thoroughly updated to meet the needs of today's 3D graphics professionals and students. New for this edition are chapters devoted to real-time issues, cellular texturing, geometric instancing, hardware acceleration, futuristic environments, and virtual universes. In addition, the familiar authoritative chapters on which readers have come to rely contain all-new material covering L-systems, particle systems, scene graphs, spot geometry, bump mapping, cloud modeling, and noise improvements. There are many new spectacular color images to enjoy, especially in this edition's full-color format.
As in the previous editions, the authors, who are the creators of the methods they discuss, provide extensive, practical explanations of widely accepted techniques as well as insights into designing new ones. New to the third edition are chapters by two well-known contributors: Bill Mark of NVIDIA and John Hart of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on state-of-the-art topics not covered in former editions.
An accompanying Web site (www.texturingandmodeling.com) contains all of the book's sample code in C code segments (all updated to the ANSI C Standard) or in RenderMan shading language, plus files of many magnificent full-color illustrations.
No other book on the market contains the breadth of theoretical and practical information necessary for applying procedural methods. More than ever, Texturing & Modeling remains the chosen resource for professionals and advanced students in computer graphics and animation.
*New chapters on: procedural real-time shading by Bill Mark, procedural geometric instancing and real-time solid texturing by John Hart, hardware acceleration strategies by David Ebert, cellular texturing by Steven Worley, and procedural planets and virtual universes by Ken Musgrave.
*New material on Perlin Noise by Ken Perlin.
*Printed in full color throughout.
*Companion Web site contains revised sample code and dozens of images.

"This book has always been my favorite computer graphics book...The authors are the key inventors of the technology and some of the most creative individuals I know."
-From the foreword by Pat Hanrahan, Canon USA Professor, Stanford University
"This new edition updates the definitive book on the subject with 50% more material. Video game developers will be particularly interested in the demonstrations of procedural texturing and modeling on real-time hardware..."
-Steve Anderson, CTO, Electronic Arts, Los Angeles
"Texturing & Modeling, Third Edition has kept up with the latest technology and provides insight and instruction on how to best use it. I would recommend it to anyone as an introduction to procedural techniques or as a comprehensive reference."
-Doug Roble, Creative Director of Software, Digital Domain
Procedural methods are storage-saving modeling and texturing techniques that provide amazing results. This third edition of the most respected tutorial and reference on procedural methods is fully revised and expanded by today's 3D graphics practitioners.
Especially noteworthy in this edition are bonus chapters by Bill Mark, author of Cg, and by John Hart of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, providing insights of particular interest to game developers as well as all users of real-time graphics.
As in both previous editions of Texturing & Modeling, Third Edition, the award-winning creators of these procedural methods show, step by step, how to produce the breathtaking effects illustrated in this beautiful, full-color book.
*Real-time issues for game developers
*Seven brand-new chapters, including real-time rendering, cellular texturing, and hardware acceleration
*All new information on particle systems, spot geometry, bump mapping, cloud modeling, and noise
*Full-color illustrations throughout
*Companion website (www.texturingandmodeling.com) containing C code procedures and RenderMan shading language for executing procedures
