Using WebGL®, you can create sophisticated interactive 3D graphics inside web browsers, without plug-ins. WebGL makes it possible to build a new generation of 3D web games, user interfaces, and information visualization solutions that will run on any standard web browser, and on PCs, smartphones, tablets, game consoles, or other devices. WebGL Programming Guide will help you get started quickly with interactive WebGL 3D programming, even if you have no prior knowledge of HTML5, JavaScript, 3D graphics, mathematics, or OpenGL. You’ll learn step-by-step, through realistic examples, building your skills as you move from simple to complex solutions for building visually appealing web pages and 3D applications with WebGL. Media, 3D graphics, and WebGL pioneers Dr. Kouichi Matsuda and Dr. Rodger Lea offer easy-to-understand tutorials on key aspects of WebGL, plus 100 downloadable sample programs, each demonstrating a specific WebGL topic. You’ll move from basic techniques such as rendering, animating, and texturing triangles, all the way to advanced techniques such as fogging, shadowing, shader switching, and displaying 3D models generated by Blender or other authoring tools. This book won’t just teach you WebGL best practices, it will give you a library of code to jumpstart your own projects. Coverage includes: • WebGL’s origin, core concepts, features, advantages, and integration with other web standards • How and basic WebGL functions work together to deliver 3D graphics • Shader development with OpenGL ES Shading Language (GLSL ES) • 3D scene drawing: representing user views, controlling space volume, clipping, object creation, and perspective • Achieving greater realism through lighting and hierarchical objects • Advanced techniques: object manipulation, heads-up displays, alpha blending, shader switching, and more • Valuable reference appendixes covering key issues ranging from coordinate systems to matrices and shader loading to web browser settings This is the newest text in the OpenGL Technical Library, Addison-Wesley’s definitive collection of programming guides an reference manuals for OpenGL and its related technologies. The Library enables programmers to gain a practical understanding of OpenGL and the other Khronos application-programming libraries including OpenGL ES and OpenCL. All of the technologies in the OpenGL Technical Library evolve under the auspices of the Khronos Group, the industry consortium guiding the evolution of modern, open-standards media APIs.

JavaScript ist eine mächtige, objektorientierte Skriptsprache, deren Code in HTML-Seiten eingebettet und vom Browser interpretiert und ausgeführt wird. Richtig eingesetzt, eignet sie sich aber auch für die Programmierung komplexer Anwendungen und hat im Zusammenhang mit HTML5 noch einmal an Bedeutung gewonnen. Diese Kurzreferenz ist ein Auszug aus der überarbeiteten und ergänzten Neuauflage von JavaScript – Das umfassende Referenzwerk, 6. Auflage, der JavaScript-Bibel schlechthin. JavaScript kurz & gut befasst sich in den ersten neun Kapiteln mit der neuesten Version des Sprachkerns (ECMAScript 5) und behandelt die Syntax der Sprache, Typen, Werte, Variablen, Operatoren und Anweisungen sowie Objekte, Arrays, Funktionen und Klassen. All dies ist nicht nur für die Verwendung von JavaScript in Webbrowsern, sondern auch beim Einsatz von Node auf der Serverseite relevant. In den folgenden fünf Kapiteln geht es um die Host-Umgebung des Webbrowsers. Es wird erklärt, wie Sie clientseitiges JavaScript für die Erstellung dynamischer Webseiten und -applikationen verwenden und mit JavaScript auf die HTML5-APIs zugreifen. Diese Kapitel liefern Informationen zu den wichtigsten Elementen von clientseitigem JavaScript: Fenster, Dokumente, Elemente, Stile, Events, Netzwerke und Speicherung.

- Die bekannten Design Patterns der Gang of Four im konkreten Einsatz für die Entwicklung von Games - Zahlreiche weitere vom Autor entwickelte Patterns - Sequenzierungs-, Verhaltens-, Entkopplungs- und Optimierungsmuster Für viele Spieleprogrammierer stellt die Finalisierung ihres Spiels die größte Herausforderung dar. Viele Projekte verlaufen im Sande, weil Programmierer der Komplexität des eigenen Codes nicht gewachsen sind. Die im Buch beschriebenen Design Patterns nehmen genau dieses Problem in Angriff. Der Autor blickt auf jahrelange Erfahrung in der Entwicklung von weltweit erfolgreichen Games zurück und stellt erprobte Patterns vor, mit deren Hilfe Sie Ihren Code entwirren und optimieren können. Die Patterns sind in Form unabhängiger Fallbeispiele organisiert, so dass Sie sich nur mit den für Sie relevanten zu befassen brauchen und das Buch auch hervorragend zum Nachschlagen verwenden können. Sie erfahren, wie man eine stabile Game Loop schreibt, wie Spielobjekte mithilfe von Komponenten organisiert werden können und wie man den CPU-Cache nutzt, um die Performance zu verbessern. Außerdem werden Sie sich damit beschäftigen, wie Skript-Engines funktionieren, wie Sie Ihren Code mittels Quadtrees und anderen räumlichen Aufteilungen optimieren und wie sich die klassischen Design Patterns in Spielen einsetzen lassen.

Ein Lidschlag. Ein Schnitt. ist ein lebendiger, vielschichtiger und anregender Essay des gefeierten Film-Cutters Walter Murch über Filmschnitt und beginnt mit der grundlegenden Frage: Warum funktionieren Schnitte? Murch führt dem Leser anschaulich und unterhaltsam die ästhetischen und praktischen Probleme des Filmschnitts vor. Aus Erfahrung spricht er über Themen wie Kontinuität und Diskontinuität beim Schneiden; Traum und Wirklichkeit; Kriterien für einen guten Schnitt; den Lidschlag als emotionaler Schnitt; den digitalen Schnitt und vieles mehr. >Dies ist kein Lehrbuch über die Technik des Schneidens. Es beschäftigt sich mit den künstlerischen - und einigen technischen - Gründen, warum ich bestimmte Dinge tue und - basierend auf meiner Erfahrung - wie ich das meiste aus dem Prozeß des kreativen Schneidens heraushole.
