This book isn't a programming guide either - since it's past the basic level, it assumes the reader is familiar enough with his graphics programming environment to be able to implement the described techniques without needing step-by-step instructions. It also comes with an insane number of references to other books and papers, which is of tremendous value. The associated website is also kept up-to-date and has an active blog maintained by the authors: Probably the best comprehensive introduction to computer graphics if you already have a little exposure to computer graphics.
Real-Time Rendering Book Information
It talks about the theories behind most of the features that you will see in a game engine or 3d software unity, blender. If you have taken a on unity or blender, this is the book to help you understand what is going on underneath. DON'T get the kindle version, it is just pdf images table of content links don't work, page takes up only half of the phone screen, cannot zoom in. This is my favorite 3D graphics book by a wide margin. The writing is clear, concise and quite up-to-date assuming you have the most recent edition. Every page contains concise, unobtrusive references to excellent sources of information books, articles, links.
For example, if you see  in the text, just find entry  in the appendix to find the name of a book, article, link or PDF with more information.
What's best about this text is how well chosen and written are the topics. Their intention is always to describe the best up-to-date techniques to implement solutions to every aspect of real-time 3D graphics, with only enough general or historical discussion of each topic to provide a foundation to understand the current state-of-the-art. This is simply the perfect practical approach. Their complementary website is an absolute gold mine of references and advice. If I could only buy one general book on 3D graphics, this would definitely be it. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
This is, by far, one of the most thorough books I've read on computer graphics. It has a great overview of a lot of different topics related to real-time rendering, from lighting models to collision detection, and all the math that is involved. Make no mistake, there is a lot of math in this book. I will be honest, on some pages with dense equations my eyes glazed over somewhat.
But it is great to have the equations to refer back to, and there are ample references given if you want to find out more. The thing to realize is that there is not a whole lot of code in this book. Sometimes pseudo-code will be giving, to illustrate an algorithm, but there is not stuff you can just copy and paste. If you are working on a 3D engine, this book should certainly be in your library, but you will need more to finish the job.
All in all I think it was a great read, and I feel a lot more comfortable with the basic concepts of rendering after reading the book.
Real-Time Rendering, Third Edition
If you are in the field, or looking to get into the field, this is basically required reading. Awesome book, it goes over as much rendering as humans know. If you want to know how to render something and it has been done before , it's in the book. It gives a really good description of just about everything, I was happy to see how it has a section to go over the GPU architecture, and uses the Playstation 3 and XBox as examples.
Goes in great depth, you're able to implement stuff out of the book even though it doesn't give you code just pseudo code. It goes over ray tracing techniques, intersections, optimization, and advanced techniques, which I was also happy about in a real-time book. Since getting the book, I stay updated on the blog and all the information on [ I have to say this book is a must have if you're into rendering!
This book is my son's new bible.
