Content abstract
As a kind of graphics industry standard, OpenGL is widely used in practical work and occupies a very important position. This book USES the Delphi programming environment about OpenGL function principle, mainly introduced the development of computer graphics and development present situation, the related theory of OpenGL and OpenGL characteristics and working principle, the basic knowledge of OpenGL and advanced application techniques, the last instance system and how to using the OpenGL technology, integrated complex three-dimensional realistic graphics. This book is well-structured, informative, innovative and practical. It can be used as a reference for undergraduate students, graduate students, scientific researchers and graphic and image developers.
Visualization of scientific computation, computer animation and virtual reality are three hot research directions in the field of computer graphics in recent years. Their technical core is the rendering of three-dimensional realistic graphics. At present, 3D realistic graphics technology has been successfully and widely used in military, aerospace, aviation, medicine, geological exploration, 3D games and industrial CAD design and other fields, so that people can directly operate the physical information in the 3D graphics world, and directly communicate with the computer. This technology has unified the power of man and machine in an intuitive and natural way, and this revolutionary change will undoubtedly greatly improve the quality and efficiency of people’s work. Therefore, it is of great theoretical and practical significance to actively promote the research of computer graphics. OpenGL is the abbreviation of Open Graphics Library, which is a set of high performance Graphics processing system developed by SGI company. It is the software interface of Graphics hardware, meaning the Open Graphics Library. With OpenGL, programmers can create interactive applications to achieve realistic three-dimensional graphics and images, which can be used in many fields that require a high degree of simulation of the real world. Due to its openness and high reusability, it has now become an industry standard. OpenGL is designed to be independent of hardware, independent from the window system, running a variety of operating systems can be used on a variety of computers, and can work in the network environment in the client/server mode, is a professional graphics processing, scientific computing and other high-end application areas of the standard graphics library. OpenGL as a graphics industry standard, almost all the visual application development tools support OpenGL integration, such as Delphi, VC++, VB, JAVA and so on. However, the current introduction of OpenGL principle of the reference resources are almost based on C or VC++, which is familiar with the Delphi programming environment for the majority of developers, is undoubtedly a pity. As we all know, Delphi with its simple and easy to use visual development environment, high efficiency compiler, powerful PASCAL language in the field of visual development tools occupies a very important position. Based on the above factors, this book uses the Delphi programming environment to tell the principle of OpenGL function. The book consists of 16 chapters. Chapter 1 briefly introduces the development of computer graphics and the development of graphics and images. Chapter 2 and Chapter 3 introduce the Delphi programming foundation and object-oriented theory; Chapter 4 introduces the basic situation of OpenGL graphics library, OpenGL characteristics and working principle; Chapter 5 introduces the foundation of entity modeling and describes the basic drawing commands of OpenGL, including the description of point entity, line entity and surface entity. Chapter 6 introduces the theory of view transformation in OpenGL, including model transformation, view transformation, projection transformation, view-area transformation and matrix stack operation. Chapters 7 and 8 cover colors and lighting in OpenGL; Chapters 9 to 13 introduce the advanced application techniques of OpenGL, including blending, anti-aliasing, fog, display lists, bitmaps, fonts, texture mapping, frame caching, and animation. Chapter 14 introduces the evaluation program and the principle of nonuniform rational B-splines. Chapter 15 explains how interactive OpenGL works, including selection mechanisms and feedback mechanisms. As a conclusion, Chapter 16 systematically describes how to comprehensively use OpenGL technology to draw complex 3D realistic graphics through several examples. This book is well-structured and informative. Much of the source code provided in the book is compiled under the Delphi 7.0 environment. This book can not only be used as a college undergraduate, graduate study of computer graphics course, but also for research institutes of researchers, computer graphics and image developers have a high reference value. Xue Huifeng, Wu Huixin and Xie Danrui participated in the compilation of the book. In addition, Xia Xiaoye, Gao Xiong, Xu Rongyue and Bai Linfei also participated in the compilation. Due to the limited level, there are omissions and mistakes in the book, please readers friends criticism and correction. Author April 2005
