3D GAME ENGINE DESIGN DAVID H EBERLY PDF

Eberly Now considered an essential reference in the game industry, 3D Game Engine Design is the first book to go beyond basic descriptions of algorithms and accurately demonstrate the complex engineering process required to design and build a real-time graphics engine to support physical realism. Faster algorithms will always win out over faster processors and assembly-language optimization techniques. Implementing those algorithms, however, can be a challenge for even experienced programmers. This book provides rigorous explanations and derivations of all the essential concepts and techniques.

Eberly Geometric Tools, Redmond, Washington, USA Now considered an essential reference in the game industry, 3D Game Engine Design is the first book to go beyond basic descriptions of algorithms and accurately demonstrate the complex engineering process required to design and build a real-time graphics engine to support physical realism.

Faster algorithms will always win out over faster processors and assembly-language optimization techniques. Implementing those algorithms, however, can be a challenge for even experienced programmers.

This book provides rigorous explanations and derivations of all the essential concepts and techniques. Ideas are revealed step by step with numerous code examples and illustrations. Source code implementations are included on the companion CD-ROM to help you understand the full progression from idea, to algorithm, to working code. Since algorithms are not used in isolation, the source code for a complete engine is provided to bring crucial context to the implementations.

This book and CD-ROM offer the most comprehensive professional reference available for the development of 3D game engines. I expect his work to become to game developers what Foley, Van Dam, et al. Even for people who have written game engines before, there is plenty of value in the alternative techniques that Eberaly presents for various parts of the 3D pipeline, which makes for a great reference text. I particularly like the presentation of various alternatives and their pros and cons.

He clearly covers performance issues and includes all the important elements of a graphics game engine. He even includes a good introduction to animation techniques and collision detection.

The book is not ashamed to delve deep into the technical details and the mathematics behind 3D graphics; I think this is good. This leaves a large gap between you and your goal of creating a great game engine. With this book, Dave is launching a huge boulder into the gap, helping you scamper to your destination. Managing a generalized 3D environment in real-time is difficult, the book covers a complete set of high-end techniques to do the job.

For example, if you want to find collisions between the swept volumes of two oriented bounding volumes as they fly through space go to page I think most game companies would be lucky to come anywhere close to this level of sophistication. It is a remarkably comprehensive and elegant guide to the construction of interactive 3D environments at a professional level. Drawing on the latest advances in real-time rendering and software engineering, Eberly astutely brings game engine development into the 21st century.

This book should be mandatory reading for all aspiring game engine designers. Previously, he was the director of engineering at Numerical Design Ltd. As a mathematician, Dave did research in the mathematics of combustion, signal and image processing, and length-biased distributions in statistics.

He was an associate professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio with an adjunct appointment in radiology at the U. Health Science Center at San Antonio. In , he gave up his tenured position to re-train in computer science at the University of North Carolina. After graduating in , he remained for one year as a research associate professor in computer science with a joint appointment in the Department of Neurosurgery, working in medical image analysis.
