In a truly wide experience the old improvement of special effects should be thought of in 3 levels, each one an immense step down the line in the direction of "realistic" machine generated pictures. the 1st, throughout the past due 1960's and early 1970's, can might be be characterised because the "wire body" period. primarily images have been composed of traces. substantial em­ phasis was once put on "real time" interactive manipulation of the version. As types grew to become extra complicated and as raster know-how constructed, removing the hidden traces or hidden surfaces from the picture grew to become serious for visible knowing. This requirement led to the second one section of special effects, the "hidden floor" period, that constructed throughout the 1970's and early 1980's. The names linked to hidden floor algorithms learn like a who is who of special effects. The cul­ mination of the hidden floor period and the start of the present and 3rd period in special effects, the "rendering" period, was once Turner Whitted's incorporation of a world illumination version into the ray trac­ ing set of rules. Now the objective used to be not only to generate a picture, yet to generate a pragmatic showing image.

1 Describing Color Color is qualitatively described using the terms hue, saturation (also referred to as chroma), and value (also referred to as brightness or intensity). These terms characterize a natural color organizing tendency. A natural first ordering is to group like colors such as "red", "blue", and "yellow". This ordering by hue, that is, it associates the color with a positionin the spectrum. Within each hue colors are then ordered by brightness and saturation. The brightness is the range from black to white.

Within each hue colors are then ordered by brightness and saturation. The brightness is the range from black to white. 1: A summary of color representations. ness, the color ranges from neutral to a very pure color. The very pure color is called a saturated color while the neutral color is desaturated. ) A rigorous definition of color description terminology is found in (Hunt 1977,1978). 1. A variety of conceptual color representations common in computer graphics are related to the red, green, and blue color primaries of video display monitors.
