Книга является отличным справочным пособием для всех кого интересует photorealistic rendering. В книге рассмотрено большое количество новых алгоритмов с реализацией на мета-языке (например дается subsurface scattering). Стоит отметить что Matt Pharr является редактором серии GPU gemstones от NVIDIA!

I. (2001) pushed boundaries in 3D animation techniques in visual effects. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) pushed new techniques with crowd simulations. Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) attempted to create photorealistic humans for the full 3D animated film. ) The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) made great advances in 3D animation with the motion-captured 3D-animated Gollum character. By the 2000s, people had become accustomed to seeing high-quality 3D animation and visual effects work.
There can really be no cutting corners in this phase. Artists working in product visualization, much like those in architecture, spend a lot of time in this preproduction phase to make sure their product design and functionality is just the way they want it. The final product may be a rapid prototype of the final model, so the product can be seen in the physical world before putting it into production. Rapid prototyping is physically creating a virtual object in the real world by using an additive construction technology.
The 3D layout becomes the new blueprint guide for the rest of the 3D animation production team. An added bonus to this 3D layout stage is that the director can now work out any complex camera moves that you just cannot draw out easily in a traditional storyboard and 2D animatic. The 3D layout is one of the stages that can begin in the preproduction stage and move into the postproduction stage. 3D layout should begin as soon as you have created proxy geometry—low-resolution representations of your final models.
