6 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
anti-aliasing
a software technique for smoothing the jagged appearance of curved or diagonal lines caused by poor resolution on a display screen
ray tracing
a sophisticated and complex method of producing high-quality computer graphics
bitmapped graphics
Computer graphics represented as arrays of bits in memory that represents the attributes of the individual pixels in an image (one bit per pixel in a black-and-white display, multiple bits per pixel in a color or gray-scale display)
bit depth
the number of bits per pixel allocated for storing indexed color information in a graphics file
MIP mapping
short for multum in parvo(Latin for "much in little") mapping. A form of mapping in which the appearance of a bitmapped image is pre-calculated from a distance and used in a texture mapper. This allows for smoother texture-mapped images calculated in the distance, since pixel conversion may alter colors relative to human perception
rendering
the creation of an image containing geometric models, using color and shading to give the image a realistic look
