Congratulations to the winners of CSC418 Computer Graphics Rendering Competition.
As part of their final assignment students were asked to create computer animations and graphics using ray tracing. Ray tracing is used in computer graphics for generating images, the technique uses similar algorithms utilized to create CGI movies.
Computer science course instructors Edy Garfinkel and Professor David Levin held a class competition to see which students could produce the best image or animation using their ray tracing skills. “These images are completely created by the students using their own software written in the graphics class, which is pretty amazing”, says Professor Levin.
CSC418 is an introduction course for computer science students interested in learning about the basic concepts and algorithms used in computer graphics.
The winners are:
- First Place: Ryan Williams
- Second Place: Greg Morenz and Felipe Orozco
- Third Place: Darren Moore
- Honourable Mentions go to: David La, Taewoo Kim, Gavin Barill and Trevor Anderson
