  1. Computer graphics, my journey to understanding

    I've started writing everything down, with a narrative of why we are doing those things. It doesn't seem readable as is, you'd have to tell me! Follow up And the end! Next up later implicit curves and why they are not used as much in some scenarios
  2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    Please let the cs_ map be Agency...
  3. Computer graphics, my journey to understanding

    The computer graphics course is meant to be for ultra photorealism so they haven't put a strain on doing the compute on gpu as for them it would only be about doing the raytracing routine more in parallel. At least thats what I understood but as soon as I'll have advanced I'll try to move to gpu compute if I have the time. I'll probably ask for help then, that's kind of you I'm in Zurich right now at ETH Zurich in the computer science master degree. Nice city but hellishly expensive!
  4. Computer graphics, my journey to understanding

    I have an assignment due October in which I'm suppose to code the retracing algorithm, using different way to sample rays and to determine the color displayed. One is a bust I have to render with normal map style and with global illumination. We compute .exr files, you can open that with Photoshop, right?
  5. Computer graphics, my journey to understanding

    Nice! Would they be willing to come to Zurich? I'm doing a double degree at ETHZ there. Our professor is at the head of Disney Research (director or vice director I don't remember)(Markus Gross). If you have an email adress I could give him to contact Allegorithmic, that would be super helpful! I have a computer vision class as well where they could talk about the techniques they can use to extract normal maps from 2d image for instance. Alternatively it could be awesome for them to come at forums both at ETHZ and French engineering schools (I can put the company in contact with CentraleSupelec where I was studying before going into an exchange degree)
  6. Hello everyone, I've started a few classes on computer graphics and animation, from a scientific point of view. Since most people are either hobbyists or artists on this forum, I figured some of you might be interested in learning a few things (or rediscovering some things as I'm learning them as well. I can't post most of my learning materials since I'd get expelled otherwise, but I'll do my best anyway. One class will be about photorealistic rendering and the other one about physically based animations and effects. On the first one we'll program various effects starting from basic illumination to subsurface scattering, going through reflections and procedural generation of effects, geometry etc. Animation will go over rigid body then soft body simulation, with overviews of hair simulation and maybe machine learning techniques to have fast soft body simulation. If those subjects interests anyone, welcome here, I'll update this thread with new posts when I'll learn new things during my courses.
  7. What's going on with your life?

    People of Europe, don't forget to check the events of the European days for patrimony (or whatever it is called in English (journées du patrimoine in french). In Paris there are so many things to do for instance, and if it's like that all over Europe, everyone is here for a treat ! Have a nice weekend everyone
  8. What's going on with your life?

    Finally settled in Zurich and taking nice pic with my new phone! I may have the chance to meet one of the worldwide expert in graphics rendering!
  9. Site Changes and Feedback

    This new version looks awesome!
  10. It gave me age 26 for a profile i haven't posted anything on since in like 17 or 18! And it told me I was a depressed teenager, when it should have interpreted my silence as pure genius!
  11. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    In theory you could be able to adjust the force of the nade throw to be able to do it, so it's not that game breaking.Plus that's an old trick which is hard to do in every situation which is why pros don't use it often I think
  12. It's not that accurate. I wish they would have studied more the chronology of posts and likes for instance!
  13. What's going on with your life?

    Searching for an apartment in Zurich is really stressful! You have to be in the city and hotels are very expensive. And It's social selection at its finest. It's making me doubt my choice to study there! Would anyone be in Zurich and ready to lease a couch ?
  14. What have you purchased recently?

    Bought a Galaxy s8 to replace my s4. It is as fast as a flagship Phone can be, has every feature you need and most of the ones you don't need, but hell does it look damn beautiful compared to other phones! Paid it the price of a s7, and at that price it is a really good phone. Recommending it
  15. Ubisoft opens a studio in Stockholm

    Which games this studio will dedicate itself to?
