Title (EN) METHOD FOR ADDING SHADOWS TO OBJECTS IN COMPUTER GRAPHICS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR AJOUTER DES OMBRES À DES OBJETS EN INFOGRAPHIE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a method, computer program and device for automatically adding shadows to objects (2; 20) in a computer-generated scene (1). This is performed by calculating a first three dimensional [3D] position for a shadow object 5 (5; 50) based on a 3D position of a first original object (2; 20) and a 3D position of a first light source (3; 30), and adding a shadow object (5; 50) to said scene (1) at said first 3D position.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé, un programme informatique et un dispositif permettant d'ajouter automatiquement des ombres à des objets (2; 20) dans une scène générée par ordinateur (1). Ce procédé consiste à calculer une première position tridimensionnelle [3D] pour une ombre d'objet (5; 50) en fonction de la position 3D d'un premier objet original (2; 20) et de la position 3D d'une première source de lumière (3; 30), et à ajouter l'ombre d'objet (5; 50) à ladite scène (1) au niveau de la première position 3D.
